The Spirit of Missions Magazine monthly journal was published by the Board of Missions of the Episcopal Church. The first issue appeared in Jan. 1836, and the last issue appeared in Dec. 1939. The Spirit of Missions is a primary source for the history of the Episcopal Church.
Comments from readers in the late 1800's.
"Those interested in the movements of the Advance Guard of the Saviour's army will Find The Spirit Of Missions interesting, instructive, inspiring." "The Spirit Of Missions presents a very full report of the Missionary operations of our Church at home and abroad, and is well adapted to awaken a warm and enlightened interest in the extension of the Gospel. I should be glad to know that it had a large circulation in the Diocese."
