Considered to be the father of modern missions, Hudson Taylor is one of my all-time favorite missionaries. His story is inspiring, captivating, thrilling, and convicting. When we read his biography, my 6 year old son absolutely couldn’t stop begging for just one more chapter.
I mean what’s not to love about a man facing death, war, hatred, and shipwreck all just to get the good news of Jesus to a very lost people group?
Hudson Taylor’s biography is full of history, biblical truth, and adventure. This makes is an amazing addition to our homeschool collection.
