For centuries the Turkish Empire has been a brutal enemy of Christianity. Only the Apocalypse of John can properly express the horror felt by the Christian world at its atrocities in the name of religion. And now its grip upon Europe is broken! The prayer of thousands of Christians is being answered! The joy of the Seer as he foretold the fall of the Beast and the Harlot may not yet be fully ours, but we can already see that Turkey can never again be the archenemy of Christianity. Dr. Barton's sane and comprehensive exposition of what the triumph of the Balkan states means to American missions is born of missionary statesmanship.
