| || ||Title: Dodds Narrative: The State of the Northern Thai Church in 1887
Author: Swanson, Herb
Description: Article about the state of the northern Thai church from Rev. William Clifton Dodd's "Narrative for the Year ending Oct 1886." Such narratives, frequently entitled, "Narrative on the State of Religion in the Presbytery," were considered by many presbyteries in the United States to be annual reports of the condition of their churches. This particular narrative provides us with a unique look at the state of the northern Thai church after twenty years of missionary evangelism and church work. What follows in this essay is an informal commentary on the narrative, using it as a starting point for reflecting on the early history of the northern Thai church.
