5.0 out of 5 starsThought Provoking History of Chinese Missions
September 15, 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
I enjoyed this book. The facts and figures are for China in 1866 and illustrate how big the need was for Christian missionaries. The comparison between the number of ministers in Great Britian and the huge need for missionaries in China was eye opening. There are stories about Hudson Taylor's travels in China and how primitive the situation was when he got there. (Many of these stories are the same as those in his autobioraphy.) The book also gives insight into what China was like 150 years ago. If you are interested in the China of the mid-1800's or in missions, I think you would enjoy this book.
Be aware that there are a lot of "typo's" in this book and sometimes whole passages are repeated.
