A spiritual biography of the "father of modern missions," Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret poses the question: What empowered Hudson Taylor's ministry in China? The answer: a fierce faith that believed God truly would fulfill the promises in His Word. Written by the missionary statesman's son and daughter-in-law, this book is intended for Christians who "need and long for just the inward joy and power that Hudson Taylor found." Hudson Taylor's secret, it turns out, is available to any who call on Christ's name.
"An easy, non-self-denying life will never be one of power," Taylor said. "Fruit-bearing involves cross-bearing. There are not two Christs--an easygoing one for easygoing Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers. There is only one Christ. Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit?"

This is not a complaint or a criticism, but it is to show the transformation that occurred in Hudson Taylor's life. His life radically changed, and so did the story, when he discovered "Christ who is your life." And his life became one of powerful inspiration and ours can be too. I would recommend this!
Mary E. Dow5 Stars Out Of 5January 11, 2009Mary E. DowHudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret has been one of the most influential books in my lifetime. Before reading that book I thought that being a Christian meant that I was to ask Jesus into my heart to be forgiven, and then, when I died I'd go to heaven. This book showed me SO MUCH! When Jesus Christ comes to live and reign in my life, He begins a process on the inside to bring me to be more like Jesus NOW. He brings a new QUALITY of life here! The Holy Spirit comes to be my Teacher and as I am immersed in the scriptures (discovering what God is showing me what to be and do with His enabling), there come adventures day by day--living illustrations of the reality of being a Christian NOW and then, getting to be with Him after this life is over. NO COMPARISON to the works-related religion of my past!
Russell Laviolette5 Stars Out Of 5December 28, 2008Russell LavioletteThis book has had an amazing impact on my life. I bought it nearly a year ago and recently purchased it for a friend for Christmas. Within in the year of my owning the book I must have read it at least 4 times. I read alot of books that are theologically "deep" and while this book has that aspect, it also has alot of practical truths that can be applied the first time you read the book. Purchase this book and I promise you will not regret it. Follow the example of Hudson Taylor and other saints of God and learn that Christianity is more about being as opposed to doing. God bless and enjoy!
