Life changing biography

What made the experience of listening to Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret the most enjoyable?

The story of Hudson's spiritual journey is life changing and profound. It is spiritually stimulating, inspiring, and deeply instructive and challenging. His secret of total surrender to God is one I have found similar expressions of in the biographies of Oswald Chambers, Henrietta Mears, & Eric Liddell. Very worth listening to and one I will return to over and over again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret?

the moment when he decided to give up his way of life and dress and to completely immerse into Chinese (uncomfortable) dress and way of life. Also, the realization that he could never handle life without complete surrender to God and by faith, living in the power of His Spirit.

I love Hudson Taylor

Where does Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is in my top 20

Would you recommend Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret to your friends? Why or why not?

YES. I recommend this story. It one of the greatest I have ever read. I read it first 15 years ago and listened to it--thanks to Audable-- last month. It is rich!

Did Raymond Todd do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, nice voice

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Hudson Taylor's daughter dies, then later, his wife dies. And that man loved his family, you can feel that in the way he loves and accepts the Chinese he loves and adores his own family. The loss of those dear people was heartbreaking and inspiring all at once.

Any additional comments?

Hudson Taylor was one of the first missionaries to accept woman as equal, equal in the work and equal in their value to God. He was a great man. If there was another biography (with lots of excerpts from his own corrospondance--I love that in a book!) then I would buy anohter version of his biography.
