Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret (Moody Classic Series)

Also Available In

A spiritual biography of the "father of modern missions," Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret poses the question: What empowered Hudson Taylor's ministry in China? The answer: a fierce faith that believed God truly would fulfill the promises in His Word. Written by the missionary statesman's son and daughter-in-law, this book is intended for Christians who "need and long for just the inward joy and power that Hudson Taylor found." Hudson Taylor's secret, it turns out, is available to any who call on Christ's name.

"An easy, non-self-denying life will never be one of power," Taylor said. "Fruit-bearing involves cross-bearing. There are not two Christs--an easygoing one for easygoing Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers. There is only one Christ. Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit?"

Develop Faith and Prayerfulness
5 stars By Kylie T, Oct 11 2016
This book has been the most impacting book I have read, second to the Bible, in developing faithfulness and prayerfulness. The book is mixed between a biographical account of  Taylor's missionary journeys along with valuable excerpts from his diaries. The book reveals God's faithfulness and sovereignty throughout Taylor's life, as the missionary learnt "you do not need a great faith, but faith in a great God." This book will leave the reader with steadfast faith, through total surrender and prayerful dependence upon the Lord, that the Lord does work seemingly impossible circumstances for our good and His glory. The book will leave you fleeing from self-effort and relying simply on the grace and power of God, bringing you to a place of deeper faith and increased prayerfullness.

Encouraging beyond words
5 stars By MammaH, Apr 16 2013
This account of Hudson Taylor's life is incredibly encouraging and inspiring. It highlights his incredible trust and dependence on God through seemingly impossible situations and the momentous task of bringing the gospel to China. All the events of Taylor's life bring him to a continually greater dependence on The Lord until he can finally say that he has completely given all of himself into the rest of The Lord, in any and all situations. The book outlines exactly how Hudson Taylor came to grasp and live out this 'spiritual secret' in His life. This book has really encouraged and challenged me to truly rest in the Lord's providential and loving hands.
