James Hudson Taylor : Called by God Into the Heart of the Dragon by Ruth Broomhall
‘When I am a man, I will be a missionary and go to China.’Hudson Taylor sailed to Shanghai at the age of 21, and over the next 50 years, he travelled extensively throughout China sharing the Christian gospel, distributing Bibles, establishing mission stations and offering medical assistance to all.
Despite enduring persecution, political unrest, and heart-breaking personal tragedy and loss, he founded the China Inland Mission, and paved the way for many more missionaries to follow him to serve the Chinese people. By the time of his death in 1905, mission stations were established in every province in China.
This unique biography of James Hudson Taylor is 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.
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.
