The question has been and is today, which methods are truly apostolic and the most effective in producing lasting results? The purpose for this study of Bishop William Taylor's missionary methods is 1) to discover the particular methods which he himself employed; 2) to compare the conditions under which Taylor's methods were applied with conditions as they prevail today and as they prevailed at the time of Paul, the greatest missionary; 3) to compare his methods with the successful Nevius methods and the Pauline methods; and 4) to discover some basic principles for missionary work which do not change in any age.
