Product Description

Hudson Taylor completely transformed the way missionaries interact and work with indigenous peoples. He set an example of Christian charity and humility that we still struggle to meet today, but nonetheless serves as a model. His pioneering work in China led to the explosive growth of the modern Chinese church estimated to be well over 100 million people.

Hudson Taylor: Gospel Pioneer to China tells Taylor's story in riveting fashion as he journeys to China and completely immerses himself in Chinese culture, language, and even wraps his own identity up in what is to him a foreign culture all for the sake of Christ. is example was critical in establishing new and more productive and sensitive ways of interacting with indigenous groups and established a paradigm for all modern missions. A necessary read for all Christians as a major piece of the church's past.

Editorial Reviews

"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. Readers of all ages will be enthralled by the story of God’s remarkable work in and through Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission, which Chinese Christians today gladly acknowledge as essential to the growth of perhaps the largest church on earth."
