This conclusion examines Barbara Kingsolver's work, The Poisonwood Bible, which echoed a common sentiment in late twentieth-century missionary conversations: people abroad have suffered from imperialist practices, religious and political, and such practices must end. It also discusses how issues related to sexuality and human rights demonstrated the complexities brought about by past missionary success and the continuing American power. Missionary conversations about foreign policy and humans rights in the twentieth century are also examined.
