This book details the development of Hudson Taylor's faith from his teenage conversion to his last day on earth. One of the highlights for me involved reading about how Taylor grew to understand faith in everyday decisions, such as even doing without butter and milk, before God could guide him to the next step. Another involved learning how Hudson Taylor had to experience his own time in a "cave" (see 1 Samuel 22:1-2) before emerging as the great missions leader we celebrate today. Perhaps most inspiring for me was the record of Taylor's paralysis experience in 1874-1875, when he maintained his focus and determinedly kept up with his mounting correspondence through dictating to others.
This book is not as neatly written as I would have liked. Also, I must agree with what has previously been written about the Kindle edition.
However, this work did succeed in inspiring me to grow in my prayer life and seek the life of faith and perseverance that Hudson Taylor demonstrated in the most trying of circumstances.
It was this book that taught me to abide in Christ, to rest in Him as does the branch in the vine; to walk in the light, and have fellowship with the Father. Praise be to God for what he did in and through Mr. and Mrs. Taylor!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who desires to know God and serve Him with His strength and for His glory. But beware! Don't let this book replace the Bible in your daily reading!
