Their idea of the book—and of the Book—as a symbolic marker of a newly configured African engagement with European models of modernity promoted print. Missions continued to spread from Mexico into Baja California, and into the present-day state of California. Justo González notes that missionaries had greater success in these regions than the colonizers and explorers4. Again, it was the mendicant Christian who spread the cause of Christ to these regions so successfully. The entire story of Christian missions to the indigenous peoples of North America is a complex one, with both cultural resistance and religious conversion visible on the Native American side, and both arrogant high-handedness and cultural sensitivity, as well as some cases of courageous missionary solidarity with native peoples, visible on the.
