never heard of them before DD.  I don't want to add more to my reading list though.  I'm way behind as it is!

I've never heard of him, but I Googled him.  He's a christian missionary that worked in India in the early part of the last century. 

I bet there was a specific reason you asked though.

Well, I was reading something that indicated that he laid the theoretical foundation for today's megachurches with his ideas on churches as communities.  I was just wondering who here has heard of or read any of his work.
