            In 1920, David O. McKay embarked on a journey that forever changed the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His visits to the Latter-day Saint missions, schools, and branches in the Pacific solidified the Church leadership's commitment to global outreach. As importantly, ...the trip inspired McKay's own initiatives when he later became Church president.McKay's account of his odyssey brings to life the story of the Church of Jesus Christ's transformation into a global faith. Throughout his diary, McKay expressed his humanity, curiosity, and fascination with cultures and places--the Maori hongi, East Asian customs, Australian wildlife, and more. At the same time, he and his travel companion, Hugh J. Cannon, detailed the Latter-day Saint missionary life of the era, closely observing logistical challenges and cultural differences, guiding various church efforts, and listening to followers' impressions and concerns. Reid L. Neilson and Carson V. Teuscher's meticulous notes provide historical, religious, and general context for the reader.Blending travelogue with history, Pacific Apostle illuminates the thought and work of an essential figure in the twentieth-century Church of Jesus Christ.

            "This book examines encounters between the Christian church and Maori. Christian faith among Maori changed from the missionary endeavours of Pakeha settlers, to the development of indigenous expressions of Christian faith, to partnerships between Maori and Pakeha in the mainline ...churches, and the emergence of Destiny Church. The book looks at the growth, development and adaptation of Christian faith among Maori people, and considers how that development has helped shape New Zealand identity and society. It explores questions of theology, historical development, socio-cultural influence and change, and the outcomes of Pakeha interactions with Maori."--Publisher information.

            Pewhairangi: Bay of Islands Missions and Maori 1814 to 1845
              

            Pewhairangi: Bay of Islands Missions and Maori 1814 to 1845 (EPUB ebook)

            By Middleton, Anglea

            Drawing upon the author's ongoing examination of the archaeology of missionization in New Zealand, Pewhairangi also places it in international comparative context. When a small group of three English families landed in the bay below Rangihoua pa in 1814, under the protection of i...ts chief and inhabitants, the story told in Pewhairangi began. It is the story of New Zealand's first permanent European settlement at Hohi, of the church mission that it represented, and of the other mission communities subsequently established in the Bay of Islands at Kerikeri, Paihia, Te Puna, and Waimate. It tells of Ngapuhi and Pakeha engagement, as neighbors, over four decades: the chiefs, the missionaries, the mastermind Samuel Marsden, and the wives and children of all these men. The book also records the multiple comings and goings in the Bay of the amateur and professional artists whose works supply many of the book's fine illustrations.
