Preface

This little book was to have been written by Dr William Paton, whose knowledge of India and friendship with C. F. Andrews eminently fitted him for the task. He had collected his material and was about to begin upon it when, in August of last year, his sudden death prevented this among the many enterprises to which the need of the time had called him. It was in. these circumstances that I was asked to take his place. I felt constrained to do so because of my admiration and affection for him, as well as because of the interest that I shared with him in India and the service rendered to India by C. F. Andrews.

This is not intended to be a biography of Andrews. The task of preparing that will be undertaken as soon as circum- stances permit, and it is the hope of Miss Agatha Harrison (the Literary Executor of C. F. Andrews) that it will be the joint work of a British and an Indian author. What this book seeks to provide is a brief survey and estimate of Andrews's life and work. Miss Harrison has helped me by supplying me with valuable material from what she herself has collected. I have also received permission from Messrs Hodder and Stoughton and Messrs Allen and Unwin to quote largely from books by Andrews published by them, especially his What I Owe to Christ, published by the former, and Mahatma Gandhi's Ideas J published by the latter. To these publishers I desire to make grateful acknowledgment. I am also much indebted to Miss Harrison and to Mr Henry Polak for reading my manuscript and making suggestions for its improvement, and to Mr. Donald Attwater, general editor of this series, for much help in preparing the manuscript for press.

It is right that mention should be made here, as evidence of the fruitfulness of Andrews's life, that since his death his friends in India, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, are planning a memorial of him in the form of "a hall of Christian culture," "for the study of the teaching and character of Christ."
