Hudson Taylor founded the China Inland Mission and was the most influential missionary of the modern missionary movement. This biography chronicles his conversion, mission philosophy, cultural engagement, and five decades of service.
“Vance Christie has written an excellent biography of one of the greatest missionaries of all time. His lively style captures the drama, the danger, and the dedication of this “little” man whose faith in God enabled him to accomplish so much. Readers of all ages will be enthralled by the story of God’s remarkable work in and through Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission, which Chinese Christians today gladly acknowledge as essential to the growth of perhaps the largest church on earth.”
—G. Wright Doyle, Director, China Institute and Global China Center
About the Author: Vance Christie has written a number of popular biographies, is the Pastor of Aurora Evangelical Free Church in Aurora, Nebraska, and is a member of the EFCA Ministerial Association.

The newest addition to the Reformed Expository Commentary series has arrived! 1 Kings marks the sixteenth volume in the set and is the fifth volume to cover a New Testament text.
“Sadly for many North American Christians, the Old Testament is a dead book, often treated merely as a foil against which to interpret the New Testament. Phil Ryken’s work goes much, much farther. This volume is a model of exposition, combining thorough and responsible exegesis with a passion to communicate the life-giving power of Old Testament Scriptures for the church.”
—Daniel I. Block, Gunther H. Knoedler Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois
Westminster Bookstore is currently holding a special on 1 Kings and the rest of the great titles from the Reformed Expository Commentary series: WTS BOOKS
