Product Description

Harold Schofield, a brilliant Oxford doctor who had laboured as a missionary in China for many years, was on his knees praying, 'Lord, give me missionaries from British Universities to help in China.'

The day he died, D. E. Hoste applied to Hudson Taylor for mission work in the China Inland Mission (Now Overseas Missionary Fellowship). Schofield's prayer was answered as seven Cambridge students volunteered to leave behind cozy lives of wealth and privilege to serve God in whatever way they were led. These seven inspired thousands of others to think seriously of missionary service. Included among them was C.T. Studd, captain of England and the finest cricketer of his day---if he could give all that up, then so could anyone!

The story of these seven are an inspiration that God can take people and use them in incredible ways---if they are willing to serve. As Pollock says in his book, 'Theirs is the story of ordinary men, and thus may be repeated.' Will it be repeated in your life?

John Pollock, an award-winning biographer, is acclaimed as one of Britain's leading historical writers. A prestigious annual biography prize has recently been named after him in the U.S.A.

Editorial Reviews

"The story in these pages is of great encouragement and interest to Christians in our day. God calls Christians to serve Him in many vocations. This book provides a clear reminder of God's patient providence in directing His people into paths He has planned for them to walk. We are mindful of the growing church in China today. Here is an account of seven who were raised up to sow Gospel seed that bore fruit over time. To obey God in this manner, a number of them gave up great wealth or sure careers in England, and some had to overcome parental dismay at their decisions. Throughout, the reader is reminded of the lordship of Christ as one desires to be faithful in one's own callings."
"It is not surprising that out of the whole-hearted devotion of these seven young men with their "intolerance of shoddy spirituality in themselves or in others, "there should emerge even beyond their huge labours in China, some extraordinary consequences"
