Chapter Summary

While there can be little doubt about the depth and breadth of Justin Perkins' contribution to the Urmia mission with regard to the development of the Syriac language and literature as well as more generally to the mission's theological stance and practical policies, this chapter seeks to understand his influence not from the perspective of his fellow missionaries or home board administrators, but from the local recipients of his mission. The sermon is a classical funeral eulogy, dwelling on the life and merits of the missionary rather than critically analyzing his work. The chapter analyzes this sermon thematically in order to understand more of the local reception of the missionaries, in particular of the person Justin Perkins. It focuses on to the text of the sermon, leaving a discussion of its wider context for a later occasion.
