Caste, Gender, and Christianity in Colonial India
Every effort to be self-reliant reminds me how dependent I am on others, some of whom I know and many of whom I do not. Each day increases the grace I receive from others and the debt that I can never repay. This present volume certainly added to the number of people to whom I should live indebted. My guru Stanley H. Skreslet, with his generosity, occupies the top of this list. His timely feedback and helpful suggestions sustained its momentum. His forthright conversations, often tinged with humor, contributed to the clarity and coherence of this work. I am thankful for every minute he invested in this draft.
