Product Description

About the Author

James Hudson Taylor (1832-1905), was a British Protestant Christian missionary to China, and founder of the China Inland Mission. The society that he began was responsible for bringing over 800 missionaries to the country who began 125 schools and directly resulted in 18,000 Christian conversions, as well as the establishment of more than 300 stations of work with more than 500 local helpers in all eighteen provinces. He wrote a book called China's Spiritual Need and Claims in 1865 which was instrumental in generating sympathy for China and volunteers for the mission field, who began to go out in 1862. Taylor was known for his sensitivity to Chinese culture and zeal for evangelism. He adopted wearing native Chinese clothing even though this was rare among missionaries of that time. Under his leadership, the CIM was singularly nondenominational in practice and accepted members from all Protestant groups, including individuals from the working class and single women as well as multinational recruits. Primarily because of the CIM's campaign against the Opium trade, Taylor has been referred to as one of the most significant Europeans to visit China in the 19th Century. In this book, Taylor tells his own story--from his call to the mission field through his early mission experiences--"In Retrospect."

It was a real blessing to my heart to read what Hudson Taylor did in the service of the One true God, what courage it must have taken this young man to give up what he had to go and serve his Lord when called. Coming from Barnsley myself and being a christian also how humbling it was to read about this great servant of our Lord.

It is very stimulating to read about this man who had a burning desire to do what he felt called to do and to see how all his needs were met through prayer and dependence upon God. China was irrevocably impacted through one man's vision and this impact continues today in the lives of millions.

This is a great book - very readable, and very challenging to one's faith. Hudson Taylor learned to live by faith and prayer - and what an example he is and an inspiration to all Christians to trust their great God.

A story of a remarkable man, determined to preach in China. The fact that in his day women were wives and mothers alone comes over plainly as I can't remember any mention of a woman at all. Also, as in these days in China bravery shines through with great poverty and many difficulties coming through but never the lack of a servant. Utterly intriguing.

Wonderful testimony of a great man of God who left a great Christian tradition in China, which is still growing rapidly. An autobiography, so written in olde English, but just a fascinating and encouraging book.

This is a short book. It lacks satisfying detail. Nevertheless it is an interesting story of one young man's adventures as a missionary in China. You will not learn a lot about China from this book, but it may whet your appetite to read around the subject.

This was a gift for someone else, but I read the first chapter. It was very well written and I wanted to read more. Hudson Taylor had a fascinating life and was an inspiration.

A stirring testimony that challenged me in my faith. An enjoyable read. I was inspired by Hudson Taylor's life and the story of the establishment of the China Inland Mission.
