Missions for Edwards were essential to the history of revival, which was the main story line in the history of humanity itself, all of which Edwards included in what he called the history of redemption. This chapter delineates Edwards's conception of mission, relates how missions generally functioned in Edwards's history of redemption, and then looks more closely at Edwards's own mission to Native Americans. At the end, it comments briefly on the importance of Edwards's mission to Protestant missions in later centuries.
