Hudson Taylor is one of the most remarkable of Christianity's heroes. A gawky, determined Yorkshire boy of commonplace origins, mediocre education, and uncertain health, Hudson Taylor lived in the assurance that under God's direction he would someday evangelize China's 400 million souls. Today he is remembered both as the founder of the world-famous China Inland Mission and one of history's great men of faith.
Hudson Taylor left England on September 19, 1853, and did not reach China until the spring of 1894. The long and arduous voyage, persecution, poverty, and the barriers of language and culture did not deter him from his mission. Throughout a life filled with trials of all sorts, Taylor remained confident in his knowledge of God's will and of his care, even in the shadow of death.

Years ago when in my 20s, Bill Gothard recommend I read this book. I respect his thoughts and council, and have intended to honor his request for 30+ years now. Life ensued and I never made the time to read about the life of this great saint. The other day it came to mind to see if this account could be read to me as I went about my hectic days and evenings. I saw that it could through Audible...what joy I felt. That joy however paled in comparison to the content of the story read. Across the years a man and his family have spoken to me as though my peers today. Exactly the encouragement and teaching that I needed . How thankful I am, in fact I am starting over, this time to take notes. Thank you Audible!
This book shows what is possible when we actually believe and trust in God. Very inspiring, very encouraging. What I like about this book is that shows the character of Hudson Taylor not just his works or what he achieved.
