This book written by a Christian missionary scholar sums up the origin, evolution, and present status of the Nirankari Sikhs in the Indian and Sikh society. Acknowledging its contribution to Sikh religion in the form of several religions reforms before 1947, it raises doubts about its present status and existence after the split in this organization in the post partition period. It apprehends that mission has no chances of becoming a movement as it was in its earlier years. There is every possibility of getting itself reduced to a cult, unless it makes fundamental changes in its present practices. The whole narration is fairly objective and based on facts.
