James Hudson Taylor was born in London in 1832, and sailed to Shanghai at the age of 21, spending over 50 years, travellinng throughout China proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, distributing Bibles, establishing mission stations and offering medical assistance to all.
Even through persecution, political unrest, and heart-breaking personal tragedy and loss, he becames the founder of the China Inland Mission, and in doing so, opened the door for many more missionaries to follow in his footsteps to reach the Chinese people for the Kingdom of God. By the time of his death in 1905, mission stations were established in every province in China.
In this unique biography, written by his great-grandniece, Ruth Broomhall, and beautifully illustrated thanks to her privileged access to a wealth of family archives, letters, and photographs, as well as stills from the accompanying DVD we can take an intimate look into the life of one of the most well known missionaries in Christian history,
Each chapter ends with a reflection on an aspect of Hudson's ministry for you to consider and reflect on how it can encourage you in your own faith.
