A Passage to India

E. M. Forster

Character Analysis The Missionaries

Mr. Sorley and Mr. Graysford have one goal in mind, to convert the Indians to Christianity. Their aim is benevolent; their motives are pure. However, one can only be converted to something that seems to him better than that which he already has. The missionaries cannot quite agree that God loves all his creation equally, and the Hindu cannot accept a religion that does less than that.
