Description

The Laymen's Foreign Missions Inquiry was a multi-denominational group convened in the early 20th century to assess the impacts, positive and negative, of the Protestant missionary movement with the intention "[t]o aid laymen to determine their attitude toward Foreign Missions, by reconsidering the functions of such Missions in the world today." It was thought by some laypersons that the work of missionaries, particularly in eastern Asia, had fulfilled its purpose and might need to change course or end entirely.

The LFMI's Commission of Appraisal sent representatives to gather information in India, Burma (Myanmar), China, and Japan, which was then gathered into a series of reports.
