    "The exchanged life background"

    Very interesting life story of a "real" Christian- with Christ living within him and ruling his life. This has grown into "The exchanged life" movement within Christianity which emphasizes the "rest of the Gospel" with Christ as the Lord of our life. Really enjoyed the book and highly recommend it. It is an amazing life story of faith and prayer accomplishing unbelievable results. What a lesson in faith and humility.

    "Wow...what faith!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret the most enjoyable?

    Such a wonderful life of faith, duty, and loyalty to God! Amazing how he stayed true to God's call and continued to care for the people he was called to care for. So worth the time to listen to or to read.

    Story
    "Amazing Trust"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Taylor's life was amazing as he trusted Jesus for every detail pertaining to his life. On many occasions the Lord would wait until the very last minute to meet Taylor's needs but would ALWAYS provide for him. It is just an amazing life of trust.

    Story
    "I love Hudson Taylor"
    Where does Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is in my top 20


    Would you recommend Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret to your friends? Why or why not?

    YES. I recommend this story. It one of the greatest I have ever read. I read it first 15 years ago and listened to it--thanks to Audable-- last month. It is rich!


    Did Raymond Todd do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, nice voice


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Hudson Taylor's daughter dies, then later, his wife dies. And that man loved his family, you can feel that in the way he loves and accepts the Chinese he loves and adores his own family. The loss of those dear people was heartbreaking and inspiring all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    Hudson Taylor was one of the first missionaries to accept woman as equal, equal in the work and equal in their value to God. He was a great man. If there was another biography (with lots of excerpts from his own corrospondance--I love that in a book!) then I would buy anohter version of his biography.

    Story
    "Life changing biography"
    What made the experience of listening to Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret the most enjoyable?

    The story of Hudson's spiritual journey is life changing and profound. It is spiritually stimulating, inspiring, and deeply instructive and challenging. His secret of total surrender to God is one I have found similar expressions of in the biographies of Oswald Chambers, Henrietta Mears, & Eric Liddell. Very worth listening to and one I will return to over and over again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret?

    the moment when he decided to give up his way of life and dress and to completely immerse into Chinese (uncomfortable) dress and way of life. Also, the realization that he could never handle life without complete surrender to God and by faith, living in the power of His Spirit.


    Which character – as performed by Raymond Todd – was your favorite?

    Hudson
