Historical Reflections on Christian Missions in China


Over the last two hundred years a host of men, women, and children from around the world have dedicated their lives to establishing the Kingdom of God in China. This book makes it possible for today's Christians to benefit from the past experience of these missionary giants.

Drawing on the wisdom of well-known China workers such as Hudson Taylor, Timothy Richard, John Nevius, and William Milne, each of the included thirty quotations addresses a different aspect of cross-cultural missions in China. As readers work through the brief selections over a thirty-day period, they will discover many new insights to guide their prayers and drive their missionary methods towards greater faithfulness.

Whether a newcomer to China mission, a prayer warrior from far away, or an experienced China hand in search of renewal, all Christians with an interest in seeing God's Kingdom in China grow will be challenged and encouraged by this book. Buy on Amazon.
