About "An Adventure Begins (Hudson Taylor) (Trailblazers Series)"
:Hudson Taylor was a sickly child. He was often ill and had very poor eyesight. But God chose him to evangelise the Chinese. So at the age of 21 Hudson Taylor left the United Kingdom to sail half way round the world to China. Why did he do this? He did it to tell the Chinese people about the good news of Jesus Christ and to give them a message of hope. This story covers Hudson's childhood and traumatic teenage years as well as his life as a well-known pioneer missionary. We see him facing sickness, poverty, heartache and death and we see him trusting in God throughout. When in China he became like the Chinese in his dress and manner, which ostracised him from the other missionaries.

An Adventure Begins is a biography on the life of Hudson Taylor. As a child Hudson loved adventures and that love for an adventure didn't change when he grew into a young man. When Hudson was 21 years old he went to China to tell people about Jesus. Hudson had many adventures but he also had many trials and dangers to go with it. I found Hudson such an example to me because he trusted God through all of his troubles. Great for kids aged 10 and up. Join a Hudson on the adventure of his lifetime.
