Inspired by his contact with David Livingstone, Arnot left Glasgow in 1881, heading for the heart of Central Africa where he penetrated areas where no missionaries had been before. A 'chance' meeting drew him to Katanga in Southern Congo, where he encountered Msiri, king of an extensive empire, and started mission work.

He recruited a team from Britain to join him, who, after severe setbacks, established work in three countries of Central Africa. Despite poor health, Arnot continued to pioneer new areas and his final illness occured while opening new work on the upper Zambezi. His legacy lives on in thousands of churches spread across Central Africa.

'Ian Burness has used his own experience as a cross-cultural mission worker to produce an illuminating and well-contexted account of the life and work of Frederick Stanley Arnot. The subject deserves to be much better known, and I hope this biography will contribute to that' - Tim Grass, Senior Research Fellow, Spurgeon's College and author.

Ian Burness graduated in medicine from Aberdeen Univeristy, and after post-graduate training went to work in Zambia in 1979. He worked first at Chitokoloki Mission, then at Chavuma, on the Angolan border. In 1992, he joined Echoes of Service in Bath, and has worked in the global support mission in many countries.
