    1. Born Frederick Howard Taylor aka F Howard Taylor.The son of James Hudson Taylor, missionary to China Howard Taylor was also became a missionary in China He was married to Geraldine Taylor, aka Mrs Howard Taylor.

    2. I'm trying to go back and rate some of my favorites from years past and get some good nonfiction books on my shelves! This book is not an easy read by any meansover 1000 pages with both volumesbut it is rewarding. I do think the first volume is a little more interesting, but I did persevere and I did finish! I would suggest reading only a chapter or two a day after your quiet time and simply planning for it to take a while.This is a top-notch missionary biography. I do have to say, my hands-down [...]

    3. Detailed diary/journal entries make for a very long book, but it is a book that will challenge you to memorize Scripture a little more to have a ready verse for every life situation - how Taylor recalls, relies on, and frames everything he does with Bible verses is nothing short of convicting. His burden for the Chinese is so deeply felt that he undergoes monumental, to me, sacrifices and all with a beautiful spirit. His reliance on God is convicting, too - everything seems impossible, and yet n [...]

    4. My faith was strengthened by reading this book! It is only the first volume of a two-volume set and itself was over 500 pages long. If you have the patience to endure the length of such a book, it would be worth your while to start AND finish this book!Several items that spoke to my heart from the life of Hudson Taylor:1) His seriousness early in life (teenage years) at learning medicine opened many doors for him in his missions work just a few years later when he arrived in China. We should enc [...]

    5. The first book in a two volume set, this biography feels like an autobiography at times with all of the personal letters from Taylor to family members. I agree with other reviewers that at times the reading is slow in its pace of events but it resembles life in that way. You almost struggle along with Hudson Taylor as he longs and waits to be sent to China, as he adapts to the hardships of living through war both physical and spiritual, and rides the highs and lows that we all experience as we s [...]

    6. Hudson Taylor is now a giant in the history of missions, but this book shows how difficult it was for him to make it to China and work in China at first. His challenges included lack of finances both at home and abroad, his own poor health, travel restrictions by both the British and Chinese governments, and civil unrest. His faith in the midst of these obstacles is both amazing and inspirational, especially considering how young he was at the time. The authors (his son and daughter-in-law) also [...]

    7. Most biographies that range in the couple hundred page category feel like highlight reels of some great persons life. This two volume set, is at times as painfully slow as life, and that's what I loved about it. For one of the masters of 'the victorious life' this book shows a real man, who indeed learned to find his all in Christ, and suffered incredibly, but saw God work in amazing ways through all manner of risks, and steady faithful service.

    8. This was perhaps the best biography I have ever read. Hudson Taylor's life was truly amazing in what God permitted him to accomplish. However, what stands out in this book is the author's ability to reveal the spiritual heart of this man. The book reveals the man's soul not merely the man's body. It is well written, captivating and convicting.

    9. Far and away my favorite missionary biography, the two volume account of Hudson Taylor is an amazing look at the development of the man himself and the amazing work God accomplished through him. This stands at the top of the list of missions biographies and is worth the time and effort required to conquer this monumental account.

    10. I have read a number of biographies and the writer is as important as the subject. Great set of books to learn the heart of Hudson Taylor and the work that the hand of God did in China. The wisdom and spiritual maturity of Dr. & Mrs. Howard Taylor make these books worth reading with a pen and notepad in hand.

    11. An excellent book. I was a little disappointed with the Kindle edition, though. One of the chapters was missing and there were many misspellings, probably due to OCR difficulties. But hey! It was only a buck!

    12. Lots of inspiration within the pages of these two volumes! Impressive when you consider all Hudson Taylor gladly endured because of the call of God on his life!

    13. An amazing story, really well written. At times, perhaps, difficult for the modern reader to understand. I did like Hudson Taylor's warning to his sister about the corrupting influence of the novel.
