The Great Island: Studies in the Exploration and Evangelization of Mindanao
The exploration and evangelization of Mindanao required courage, perseverance, and ingenuity on the part of missionaries and explorers. While some of the essays in this book afford a glimpse of the endeavor, they deal with only a small part of the great enterprise. Products of reflection and historical research, they deal in turn with the controversy about the site of the first Mass; beginnings of evangelization; construction of the first church; the exploration of the largest river system of the island; the early attempts to climb the highest mountain; and Rizal's four-year stay in Dapitan.
