Excellent Book to the Understanding of Abiding in Christ... Feb 11, 2007
Very well written and worthy of commendation. I recommend in for all, especially to those who are seeking, with hope, a trophy of God's dispensations in the diverse and many operations of this world about them, and in them. There certainly is a refuge in the midst of the storms, who is Christ Jesus...but, sometimes, it is neddful to direct thy bow to face the storm, and to ride the waves right into the storm. It is there, that we may find an "eye" in the storm, with peace and tranquility our anchors and mainstay.

This got me an A on a college paper on Missionaries in China. It is a great primary source.
Chose Hudson for Son's Name Jan 10, 2007
This book is an inspiring story of Hudson Taylor's life - the sacrifices he made of himself and his family to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. He was truly a faith-filled man, and his story will encourage your faith too! (We named our son Hudson after this Christian man.)

The story of a Spiritual Giant Apr 8, 2006
Hudson Taylor was a true spiritual giant who didn't just talk the talk, he walked the walk in every way possible. He did so in such a humble and self-sacrificing way that one can only admire and respect his courage and ultimate faith.
British-born, Mr. Taylor lived in the 18 and 1900s era and felt led to a life as a missionary to China. He became a pioneer in many ways and one of those ways was to adopt the dress and customs of the people he so loved, a practice he was sometimes criticized for.
Never before have I read such a biography of a life more driven by faith in spite of the daily trials he dealt with. He was an inspiring example to any of faith.
Near the end of his life that was mostly spent in China, he returned to the people, from a brief time overseas and was greeted: "And oh, how the people responded - both missionaries and the Chinese - everywhere he went. He was called `Venerable Father' and `Benefactor of China' by many who came to greet him. Crowds gathered to hear him whenever he spoke and sometimes just to see him pass." Of course Hudson Taylor took this in stride, so humble, self-effacing and gentle was he.
This well-written book is full of details chronicling Mr. Taylor's life, some in the form of the eloquent letters he sent back home. The last paragraph ends with his daughter-in-law's account at his death: "...and oh, the look of rest and calm that came over the dear face was wonderful! The weight of years seemed to pass away in a few moments. The weary lines vanished. He looked like a child quietly sleeping, and the very room seemed full of unutterable peace." - a tribute of a life given totally to the God he loved and served.
"Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret" is an amazing story of an incredible man and well worth the read. If you are a person of faith, you will definitely feel blessed.
