Ames Hudson Taylor (1832-1905) was a Christian missionary to China and founder of the China Inland Mission (renamed Overseas Missionary Fellowship). He served there for 51 years, bringing over 800 missionaries to the country and personally baptizing an estimated 50,000 converts. He was famous for his commitment to cultural sensitivity, wearing Chinese dress even though this was rare among missionaries of that time. China Inland Mission accepted working class volunteers, women, multinational recruits, and members of all Protestant denominations. Hudson Taylor has been referred to as one of the most significant figures in the history of China in the 19th century, and the China Inland Mission was responsible for the widest Christian evangelistic campaign since the first century when Paul the Apostle brought Christian teaching to Europe. At Taylor's death in 1905, there were 205 stations with 849 missionaries and 125,000 Chinese Christians in the China Inland Mission. This is the classic biography of James Hudson Taylor by his son Howard and daughter-in-law Geraldine, who also served as missionaries to China. It is the inspiring story of Taylor's uncovering of the spiritual secret that paved the way for the China Inland Mission to become a reality. - Publisher

More than any other modern man, Hudson Taylor is the pattern by which the missionary is measured. Few who read this account of how Hudson Taylor learned to trust God first for a half crown and eventually for one thousand new missionaries can remain content with the current state of their own faith. "Hudson Taylor is not remembered today as the strategist who almost singlehandedly brought about a revolutionary change in the missionary situation in China one hundred years ago, but rather as a man of God. What abide are the fragrance and influence of his life." So wrote Arthur Glasser, former home director for the USA and Canada of the Overseas Missionary Fellowship. - Back cover
