Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret
Share |

James 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 Taylorís 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 Taylorís uncovering of the spiritual secret that paved the way for the China Inland Mission to become a reality. This classic title has sold hundreds of thousands of copies since its original publication in 1932. Hendrickson introduces a lovely edition, re-typeset and redesigned, a perfect gift for anyone who wants to replace the old paperback or who is encountering Hudson Taylorís Spiritual Secret for the first time.

As a person who has enjoyed reading many biographies of missionaries, I found this one about the life and ministry of Hudson Taylor extremely encouraging and uplifting. The Lord used him to start a work in China that I believe has a direct connection the the thriving church in China today. His faith and trust that the Lord would provide was encouraging to say the least. There were times when the China Inland Mission had less then a dollar yet Mr. Taylor continued on with the ministry trusting that the Lord would provide. God sent the moneys needed just in time, and thus the mission never had to go into debt. This is an encouraging story of how God used one man to spread the Gospel and how He is truly Jehovah Jireh.- Daniel Guyer
