This article sketches the interaction of religions in the Mediterranean world in which Christianity was involved; sets over against this survey a description of the converging elements of the religious life of modern India and asks: "Will the Christian movement in India be like the Christian movement in the Roman Empire? Will the time come when the two classes are so nearly alike in sympathy and purpose that a man can pass from the one to the other without serious shock and thus the multitudes flock into the Christian church? Or will Christianity suffer the fate of Buddhism and be absorbed?"
