I love biographies. I'm especially fond of biographies of Christian missionaries and pastors. I knew of Hudson Taylor and his work in China in the 19th century, but I had yet to read anything about him; until this week.
My wife recommended I read a brief account of Hudson and Maria Taylor's marriage and ministry. Hudson Taylor & Maria: A Match Made in Heaven is a quick read and gives the reader a glimpse into the Taylors' faith in a wise and sovereign God as they labored to spread the gospel throughout inland China.
Pick up a copy. You won't be disappointed.
