By a happy coincidence the quarter-millennium jubilee year of the Tranquebar Mission again brought to light a long forgotten but most valuable source on that great pioneer enterprise of Protestant world missions, permitting a unique inside look into the evangelistic principles and techniques employed by Barrholomaeus Ziegenbalg and his co-workers and thus revealing the very heart and soul of their work. It is a small volume of 352 pages, and its full title may be of interest: "Thirty-Four Conferences Between the Danish Missionaries and the Malabarian Bramans (or Heathen Priests) in the East Indies, Concerning the Truth of the Christian Religion: Together with some letters written by the Heathens to the said Missionaries. Translated out of High Dutch by Mr. Philipps. London, 1719."
