Roland Allen (1868-1947) was a voice crying in the wilderness, who developed a prophetic critique of the modern missionary enterprise and suggested an approach to indigenisation which was far ahead of his time. The article sketches Allen's career and shows in detail how his critique of the missionary enterprise developed, from his brief missionary experience in China to his later life in East Africa.
