E. Stanley Jones Had a Wife: The Life and Mission of Mabel Lossing Jones
E. Stanley Jones Had a Wife: The Life and Mission of Mabel Lossing Jones is the first biographical study of the extraordinary yet largely unheralded life of Mabel Lossing Jones, wife of the famed evangelist E. Stanley Jones. This pioneer in evangelism in the early to mid 1900s, particularly in India, here emerges out of the shadow of her celebrated husband as a multi-faceted woman leader of the world Christian movement. Mabel was commissioned to India in 1904 by the Women's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She served at the Khandwa Girls' Orphanage and later trained teachers at the Lal Bagh School in Lucknow, India. Mabel was singled out in June of 1909 by the British Colonial government to start a teacher training school in Hawa Bagh. After a year on furlough, she returned to India as a missionary for the Methodist Episcopal Church and married E. Stanley Jones in 1911. Mabel was a regular correspondent on matters of education and discipline with Mahatma Gandhi, she sat on the Municipal Council of Sitapur with ten Hindu men and ten Muslim men for 20 years, and she served on the Board of Governors of the Isabella Thoburn College. Mabel Lossing Jones was an outstanding woman who warrants the attention of the entire mission-minded community. Her life story provides us with an understanding of a woman missionary who related graciously and powerfully in the social and professional arenas. Her egalitarian example informs us of a powerful, practical, and personal missiological perspective.
