This is the page-turning biography of Ion Keith-Falconer, a missionary who studied in Germany and Egypt before relocating his family to the colony of Aden, in present-day Yemen. Like C. T. Studd, Keith-Falconer was a famous athlete and a spokesman for what some have called “muscular Christianity.” He also had a promising career as a linguist and received a lecturing appointment at Cambridge. Keith-Falconer died tragically not long after arriving in his chosen mission field, but his consecrated life was an inspiration that led many more to the mission field.
This biography was written by James Robson, one of the missionaries that went to Yemen after Ion Keith-Falconer.
