Hudson Taylor: Gospel Pioneer to China
3 in stock
In 19th-century England, James and Amelia Taylor famously prayed, "Dear God, if you should give us a son, grant that he may work for you in China."?
Their son, James Hudson Taylor, would go on to become the most influential missionary of the modern missionary movement. He totally changed the way that missionaries worked with indigenous peoples, setting an example that they continue to follow to this day. His pioneering work in China led to the explosive growth of the modern Chinese church.
This is the exciting story of a soul consecrated to God's service. Journey with Taylor as he immerses himself in the vibrant local culture and comes to identify with those he served on the mission field - and be inspired to take a new approach to witnessing for Christ in your own life.
"Vance Christie has written an excellent biography of one of the greatest missionaries of all time. His lively style captures the drama, the danger, and the dedication of this little man whose faith in God enabled him to accomplish so much."
