Description

This monograph is the result of an analysis of the Malay encounter of Benjamin Peach Keasberry from 1835 to 1875 done in the course of my Missions studies at Trinity Theological College (TTC). My interest in reading BP Keasberry’s letters and journals grew from my discovery of the available microfiche records of School of Oriental and African Studies, Council of World Mission Archives, Ultra Ganges at the TTC Library. The London Missionary Society (LMS) was the earliest Mission society in Singapore and BP Keasberry was one of their members. The Incoming correspondences of the missionaries to the LMS Foreign Secretary provided an interesting window to see how the church and mission in Singapore engaged the Malay World with the gospel. Almost all of the letters of Keasberry’s Incoming letters were transcribed. The contents of the letters and attached journals were read and studied to provide us a window into the early nineteenth century Malay mission in Singapore. The results of the reading and reflection are in the first part of this monograph and the second part consists of the transcribed source documents. It is hoped that these materials will give impetus to further explorations in understanding the church and mission encounter in the Malay World today.
