Hudson Taylor & China’s Open Century: Barbarians at the Gates


In stock


Hudson Taylor was one of the world’s greatest missionaries of all time. He has been described as one of the five most influential foreigners who came to China in the nineteenth century.

Dr A J Broomhall, with full access to much previously unpublished material, has written the definitive history of this remarkable man.

“Barbarians at the Gates”, the first of six books, provides the essential background: a clear understanding of the land and people of China, together with Chinese attitudes to the Western ‘barbarians’, knocking at their gates with ambitions of trade and empire, and to the Christian predecessors who paved the way for Hudson Taylor.
