Abstract:

"E. Stanley Jones Had a Wife: The Life and Mission of Mabel Lossing Jones is the first biographical study of the largely unheralded life of Mabel Lossing Jones, wife of the famed evangelist. This pioneer in evangelism in the early to mid-1900s, particularly in India, emerges out of the shadow of her celebrated husband as a multifaceted leader of the world Christian movement.".

"Mabel Lossing was commissioned to India in 1904 by the Women's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She served at the Khandwa Girls' Orphanage and later trained teachers at the Lal Bagh School in Lucknow, India. Lossing was singled out in June 1909 by the British colonial government to start a teacher-training school in Hawa Bagh. After a year on furlough, she returned to India as a missionary for the Methodist Episcopal Church and married E. Stanley Jones in 1911. She corresponded regularly with Mahatma Gandhi on matters of education and discipline, sat on the Municipal Council of Sitapur with ten Hindu men and ten Muslim men for 20 years, and served on the Board of Governors of Isabella Thoburn College.".

"Mabel Lossing Jones was an outstanding woman in her own right, warranting the attention of the entire mission-minded community. E Stanley Jones Had a Wife promotes an understanding of a missionary who related graciously and powerfully in both social and professional arenas. Her egalitarian example informs us of a powerful, practical, and personal missiological perspective."--BOOK JACKET.
