The book is primarily on the life and contribution of Dr. John Roberts as a Christian missionary against the background of his times. He was the Founder-Principal of the erstwhile Cherra Theological College, established in 1887 at a place popularly known as Cherrapunji, officially called Sohra, Meghalaya, India. In 1994, the College was shifted to Mawklot, Shillong and renamed as `John Roberts Theological Seminary'.The main aim of the present work is to discover John Roberts as a preacher, teacher, pastor, translator and author; who spent over 37 years in growing and developing Church on the Khasi Hills. This scholarly research will be an important resource not only to theologians and historians but also to missiologists addressing their questions aimed at seeking to understand the culture and society in which the church is situated. Printed Pages: 504.
