Item description for Robert Morrison: Translator in China (By Faith Biography Series) by Ambassador...
Robert Morrison was the first Protestant missionary to China and a forerunner of the modern medical missionaries. He accomplished incredible things for God, including a translation of the Bible into Chinese, an Anglo-Chinese dictionary, and hundreds of Chinese tracts and translations.
Morrison toiled for twenty-five years in China, and though his ministry was not blessed by great numbers of converts, he paved the way for other missionaries to come to China. His work for Christ was what mattered, not the praise of friends or the blame of his enemies. He worked ceaselessly, never faltering from the path of duty, which enabled him to accomplish work which seemed impossible. To all Christians he is a wonderful example.

Reviews - What do customers think about Robert Morrison: Translator in China (By Faith Biography Series)?
Robert Morrison: Translator in China is an awesome book Apr 25, 2010
The book is a historical & theological encounter of the first Protestant missionary in China. Encroached upon on all sides, the only friend he really has is God Himself who is really the only One he needs in the first place. Twelve chapters long & fairly easily to read, I read this book in two days while I was in the middle of reading another book which took about three months to finish completely (Fifteen chapters). If you like historical biographies mixed with a Christian devotional spirit, this is the book for you. Morrison is now one of my top favorites as a Servant of the Most High & as one of my favorites in the whole of human existence. Who here could've translated the entire Bible from English to Chinese without even knowing a single word of Mandarin or Cantonese & without even taking a single step inside the Great Chinese Empire beforehand? Some pictures in the middle of the book are a bonus too.
