I was looking for an account of Hudson
and Maria (nee Dyer) Taylor's life together
and mission work in China
and this book did not dissappointment.
I really admire them both
for living their faith out and persevering
in the most difficult challenges, hardships
and betrayal by some of their own
countrymen who should have supported
What I find refreshing is how humble
they were and not only mastering
the Chinese language and dialects
but adopting the dress and diet
of those they were ministering to.
They did not have an attitude
of white supremacy so prevalent
in their own western culture and time.
Hudson and Maria were counter-culture!
They wanted to equip the believing Chinese
to minister to their own brothers and sisters.
They knew Christianity did not 'belong'
to any one culture or people.
It was for all willing to follow Jesus
and make disciples.
They truly loved the Chinese
and their legacy continues today through OMF.
Very inspiring read.
This book was informative, well researched
and at times poignant. I highly recommend it!
