The present book History of Christian Missionaries: A Study in Kurnool District of Andhra Pradesh described the relentless, selfless, compassioned and dedicated services of Christian Missionaries to the people of the region. The equal treatment of the untouchables and caste Hindus in the hospitals engendered a kind of social awareness among the latter. Missionaries taught this people cleanliness and infused in them an element of health consciousness. This is the fair description of the work of the major Christian missions in Andhra Pradesh. Drawing their strength and impetus from the religious awakening all over the world during 19th century, these denominations found economically backward, socially downtrodden and religiously deprived community in Andhra Pradesh for their work. In spite of the caste policies of the early Christian missions and the exploitation of poverty by later groups, it is clear that Christian missions worked hard to help people from the lower rungs of the caste system, and were, in turn, embraced by them. It was found out that the various Christian organizations lead in bringing higher education and modern medical care to the population by establishing several prominent educational institutions and hospitals in Andhra Pradesh. .
