Rev Eli Stanley Jones
Birth: Jan. 3, 1884
Baltimore
Baltimore County
Maryland, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 1973, India

Methodist Christian Missionary and Theologian. Eli Stanley Jones attended public schools in Baltimore. He graduated from Asbury College in Kentucky. While on the faculty of Asbury in 1907, he was called to missionary service in India under the Board of Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church. While serving in India he met and married Mabel Lossing who was also a Christian missionary. Brother Stanley, as he was called, worked among members of the very low castes and the outcastes. He taught the Gospel while not condemning other religions and it was this approach that made him one of the world's most sought-after Christian missionaries and evangalists throughout most of the twentieth century. In the months prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor he was a confidant of Franklin D. Roosevelet and Japanese leaders trying to avert war. Among the highlights of his life and career: nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his reconciliation work in Asia, Africa, and between Japan and the United States; recipient of the Ghandi Peace Award; founder of the Christian Ashram movement; launched the crusade for a Federal Union of Churches; named "Missionary Extraordinary" by the Methodist missionary publication World Outlook; and author of twenty-eight books including "Christ at the Round Table," "How To Pray," and "Mahatma Ghandi, An Interpretation." (bio by: Red)
