The Pigtail and Chopsticks Man: The Story of J. Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission
By Jim Cromarty
Evangelical Press, 2010
Paperback, 206 pages
Much has been written about Hudson Taylor and his missionary work in China. In this biography, Jim Cromarty's expressed goal is to present the material in a way that can easily be read aloud by parents to children. Though not the only ones who will benefit from the retelling of the story, families will appreciate the shorter chapters and the inclusion of several questions at the end of each chapter.
