The inspiring story of one man's love for God and his unflinching commitment to present the Gospel of Christ to the Chinese.Previously published under the title To China With Love, this book recounts the thrilling story of Hudson Taylor and the eventual formation of the China Inland Mission.Hudson Taylor left England on September 19, 1853, and did not reach China until spring of the following year. The long and arduous voyage, persecution, poverty, and the difficulties of culture and language did not deter Taylor from the divine task of his calling. Few men have been such an instrument in God's hands for proclaiming the gospel to a vast population and bringing so many Christian churches into being.The autobiography of a man whose influence in China is still felt today.
Hudson Taylor was a sickly child. He was often ill and had very poor eyesight. But God chose him to evangelise the Chinese. So at the age of 21 Hudson Taylor left the United Kingdom to sail half way round the world to China. Why did he do this? He did it to tell the Chinese people about the good news of Jesus Christ and to give them a message of hope. This story covers Hudson's childhood and traumatic teenage years as well as his life as a well-known pioneer missionary.
As a young boy, Hudson Taylor dreams of going to China, a dream that is realized when he travels there at the age of twenty one, and later works to spread Christianity to the country's interior, where no Christian missionary has gone before.
Designed with homeschoolers and Christian educators in mind, each curriculum guide offers a Christian humanities approach to studying one Trailblazer Book and its Christian hero.
Will Hudson Taylor be able to survive a difficult journey into inland China where thousands have yet to hear about Jesus Christ? How will he succeed in a land where both the language and customs are strange and new?
Biography of a missionary who endured many hardships travelling to and working in 19th century China.
From early childhood, Hudson Taylor (1832--1905) dreamed of becoming a missionary in China. Though he would struggle with his faith throughout his youth, by age seventeen he had settled his spiritual issues and acknowledged God's call to the mission field. In China, Taylor took the unusual step of adopting native garb, which helped him earn the respect of many Chinese. Depending entirely on God for his financial support and for protection from hostile elements of Chinese society, Taylor lead a work that eventually became the China Inland Mission, which laid the groundwork for much of that nation's modern-day Christianity.
Hudson Taylor's mother forgets to give her boy some soup, but while he waits, he learns about the country of China where he will go as a missionary one day.
"Ich habe herausgefunden, dass in jeder großen Arbeit Gottes drei verschiedene Stadien erkennbar sind: Erst ist es unmöglich, dann ist es schwierig, dann ist es getan." Hudson Taylor legte mit Gottes Hilfe die Grundlagen für den christlichen Glauben in China. Die Biografie schildert ihn als Mann des Gebets, genialen Strategen, demütigen Hirten und mitreißenden Prediger.
I found this work by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor on Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission, but it was a scanned copy of one that was marked up and made for a bad scan. I did find one ebook but for some reason it had some HTML errors and wouldn't load into any of my readers. I ended up taking the raw text file and going through it making all the corrections. I then converted it to a ebook format. This project was a time consuming task. Now About the Book: Hudson Taylor was a true man of faith as this book will show. He was the founder of the China Inland Mission and started his journey of faith at a young man. Here is a clip from the Forward: " The founder of the China Inland Mission was a physician, J. Hudson Taylor, a man full of the Holy Spirit and of faith, of entire surrender to God and His call, of great self- denial, heartfelt compassion, rare power in prayer, marvellous organising faculty, energetic initiative, indefatigable perseverance, and of astonishing influence with men, and withal of childlike humility."
J. Hudson Taylor was truly God's chosen servant. From his early life in England, through the founding of the China Inland Mission, to reaching millions of Chinese, his life of faith gives glorious testimony to God. His spirtual secret could change your life.
A spiritual biography of the "father of modern missions," Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret poses the question: What empowered Hudson Taylor's ministry in China? The answer: a fierce faith that believed God truly would fulfill the promises in His Word. Written by the missionary statesman's son and daughter-in-law, this book is intended for Christians who "need and long for just the inward joy and power that Hudson Taylor found." Hudson Taylor's secret, it turns out, is available to any who call on Christ's name. "An easy, non-self-denying life will never be one of power," Taylor said. "Fruit-bearing involves cross-bearing. There are not two Christs--an easygoing one for easygoing Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers. There is only one Christ. Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit?"
"Then go for Me to China!" He heard God's call and did not hesitate to fulfill it. Through many harrowing trials and tests of his faith, Hudson Taylor followed God and relied on Him only. Even when all around him seemed to be crumbling, he held fast to his Rock and his Comfort. And when God miraculously supplied his every need, he gave all the praise and thanks to Him. From Hudson Taylor's experiences, you will discover how you, too, can overcome hardships, witness miracles, and enjoy a life of contagious faith and joy!
The story of Hudson Taylor is one of adventure and excitement - of improbable answers to prayer, opposition from the establishment and triumphs of faith. Even more interesting is the story of the relationship at the heart of it all - the story of Hudson and Maria Taylor. There are few love stories as enchanting as that of Hudson Taylor, the pioneering missionary, and Maria Dyer. Their relationship and short marriage flourished in the bitterest of circumstances because their lives were firmly rooted in their devotion to God, as well as to each other. They were a perfect match, (though not perfect people), a couple who show us how to share our lives at the deepest level. John Pollock draws his material extensively from original letters and papers. What unfolds is a picture of courage and adventure in Imperial China, a lost world of pigtails, Mandarins and dragon-roofed temples. It also shows how Maria played a crucial role in shaping the ministry of a Yorkshire lad who, against oriental and western opposition, changed the way that missionaries work.
Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret is a compelling narrative of James Hudson Taylor's life journey from the time he was studying as a doctor in England to becoming the most renown missionaries to inland China. Hudson Taylor's life of prayer, diligence, humility, and evangelism will compel you to go deeper in your personal life with God, challenging you to live by faith, and cause you to chase your dreams, and face greatest fears. Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret will force you out of your comfort zone and force you into living radically for God.
Hudson left for China because he knew that thousands of people died there every day without hearing anything about a loving and living God. He knew he must obey God's command to 'Go into the world and preach the gospel.' Today he stands as a milestone in Western missionary attitudes towards indigenous peoples.
