*Hubble, Gwenyth, and Ernest A. Payne.  William Carey: The Man, His Message, and His Methods (Study Outlines).  London: Baptist Missionary Society, n.d.

This short pamphlet contains twelve outlines for use at "Summer Schools, and by the . . . Girls' Auxiliary . . . Young People's Fellowships, etc., and to individuals who are interested in the subject" (p. 3).  Each outline highlights an important aspect of Carey's life (i.e. "The Plodder," "The Botanist," "The Friend," "The Christian," "The Enquiry," "The Sermon," "The Missionary," "Translator of the Bible," The Christian Settlement," "Training Indian Leaders," "Social Reform," and "World-Wide Planning").  Each outline also includes scripture texts and questions (for reflection) assigned to be studied alongside the narrative.

The authors compare Carey, "The Botanist," to Albert Schweitzer and note that Carey allowed himself a sole luxury in his subscription to the botanical magazine Curtis (p. 8).  Of Carey's Enquiry, the authors state, "There is in the Enquiry no denominational bias, no appeal to fear, no lurid picturing of the 'perishing heathen.'  The dominant thought is the extension of Christ's Kingdom; the keynote is 'Obligation.'" (p. 15).
