Hudson Taylor

This man has got to be one of the most courageous and inspiring Christians of the modern missionary movement.


While I was at my in-laws place last year I discovered his two volume biography

written by his son – around 1400 pages in all! It was like stumbling on a gold mine.

I raced thru the first volume, despite its rather poor narration and recently finished the second volume. I’d like to read some other HT bios because while this one may have been historically accurate it was not well written and thus will get ignored by many.

If you’re a missionary and want inspiration then make sure you tap into this guy’s story, but you may like to try an easier read first!
