Hudson Taylor & China’s Open Century: Assault on the Nine


In stock


The China Inland Mission expands to the vast nine provinces. This sixth volume starts with Hudson Taylor, still half paralysed by an accident and burdened with the desire to reach all China for Christ beginning to see his plans fulfilled: the volunteers to reach nine vast provinces, with over one hundred and fifty million inhabitants, are selected. No sooner were the first eighteen ready to travel when the murder of a British consular official and the ensuing court intrigues jeopardised their carefully laid plans. This was the unlikely start for what were to prove the most dramatic ten years of expansion for the China Inland Mission.
