Lecture: “ ‘In Darkest London’: A Window on Urban Life and Mission in Victorian London”

A small hand-written journal kept daily by a door-to-door evangelist in 1861 provides a rich minefield for our understanding of urban mission in the midst of the desperate poverty of slum life. This lecture will unpack what life was like under such conditions, and the efforts made to proclaim the Christian gospel in this context.
