The inspiring story of one man's love for God and his unflinching commitment to present the Gospel of Christ to the Chinese. Hudson Taylor left England on Sept. 19, 1853, and did not reach China until the spring of the following year. The long and arduous voyage, persecution, poverty and the difficulties of culture and language did not deter Taylor from the divine task of his calling. Few men have been such an instrument in God's hands for proclaiming the gospel to a vast population and bringing so many Christian churches into being. For ages 12 and up.

Others laughed at the idea of blond, blue-eyed Hudson Taylor (1832-1905) becoming a missionary to China. He was so pale; the Chinese would think he was a ghost! But Hudson knew that God had called him, and he believed that God would help him. His faith led to the founding of the China Inland Mission and firmly established the gospel in the hearts of Chinese people.
