Sir William Muir


“If Christianity is anything, it must be everything. It cannot brook a rival, nor cease to wage war against all other faiths, without losing its strength and virtue.”1

Sir Edward Muir (1819-1905), principal of Edinburgh University, staunch supporter of missions, established Muirabad, a Christian village in India.
