  • Borden of Yale
    by Howard Mrs. Taylor
    ISBN: 1556610149
    Born into a wealthy American family, William Borden attended Princeton Seminary and graduated from Yale. Despite an upper class upbringing, his travels around the world challenged him to the needs of the heathen world for Jesus Christ, and he purposed to make his choices count toward that goal.

    As Borden trained for a life of service to the Kansu people of China, his heart and labor went out in very practical ways to the widows, orphans and cripples in the back streets of Chicago. A quiet yet powerful man, he diligently sought to win other young college men for Christ and His service.

    His arrival in Egypt in 1913 was tragically marked by his contracting cerebral meningitis. His untimely death at the age of 25 was covered by nearly every newspaper in the United States as a testimony for Christ. Though "a waste" in the world's terms, both his life and his death have been a testimony and a challenge even beyond his own generation to "keep eternity's values in view."

  • Candle in the Dark

    ISBN: B0000ACNPO
    The story of William Carey. He sailed in 1793 to India with a reluctant wife and four children to bring the message of Jesus. There he encountered so much hardship it is amazing he did not abandon his mission and go home. But he stayed for over 40 years.

    One issue that tormented him was "sati"--the burning alive of widows when their husbands died. He would not rest until this practice was stopped. Facing insurmountable odds, he plodded on to influence the abolition of "sati" and to become the revered "Friend of India" and "Father of Modern Missions."

    He oversaw more translations of the Bible than had been done in all previous Christian history combined. Life was never easy for Carey. But he simply refused to quit, even when a devastating fire destroyed years of his literary work. His legacy has inspired countless others from his own day to the present. William Carey shows dramatically how a life dedicated to God and obedient to His calling can make a profound difference in the world. Starring Richard Attlee, Lynette Edwards and Julie-Kate Olivier. A Christian History Institute Production.

  • Eric Liddell
    by Catherine Swift
    ISBN: 1556611501
    One of the greatest heroes of the Cross in this century

    Eric Liddell, hero of the film Chariots of Fire, risked becoming a national disgrace at the 1924 Paris Olympics when he refused to run on a Sunday. Disqualifying himself from the finals, Britain's hope of a medal was sacrificed as well. But the thinly veiled criticism in the press turned to sensational acclaim when Eric entered—and won—a race for which he was completely untrained, finishing a full five meters ahead of the favorite.

    He was a celebrity, but the faith which had inspired his courageous stand stirred in him again, and at the height of his fame he announced that he was leaving athletics to return as a missionary to the land of his birth, China. This story of "God's Athlete" makes for exciting reading.

    From renowned Scottish athlete to missionary in China.

    In his early twenties he came in contact with a group of people who met regularly for prayer and Bible study.

Daily Bible reading and prayer immediately became an important part of his Christian life and a cornerstone of his future orphanage ministry.

    by J. Hudson Taylor
    ISBN: 0871239515

His faith led to the founding of the China Inland Mission and firmly established the gospel in the hearts of Chinese people.

  • Jim Elliot
    by Kathleen White
    ISBN: 1556611250
    The Thrilling Story of a Man Whose Missionary Influence is Still Felt Today

    Jim Elliot, a modern martyr, gained international recognition when he died with four others at the hands of Auca Indians. His story and memoirs have become a source of missionary inspiration through the writing and speaking of his wife, Elisabeth. As a young American graduating from Wheaton College, he quickly discovered a vocation in the missionary life. The field he chose was the unexplored frontiers of Ecuador in Latin America.

    Not content with bringing the Gospel to the civilized people of the country, he and his four companions flew their Piper plane over the lands of the savage Auca tribe. Their first landing meant a tragic massacre, but out of that seemingly senseless tragedy comes a powerful testimony of the call of God on one man's life.

    The young American missionary who gave his life for Christ and the Auca Indians.
  • Jim Elliot: One Great Purpose
    by Janet Benge
    ISBN: 1576581462

  • John and Betty Stam
    by Kathleen White
    ISBN: 1556611242
    The dramatic account of one couple's courage and commitment in the face of communism.

    More than seventy-five years after Hudson Taylor's pioneer missionary work in China, two young Americans, John Stam and Elizabeth Scott, set out for China as missionaries. Bound for work with Taylor's China Inland Mission, they were married after arriving in the country.

    Taylor had been threatened by the infamous Boxer Rebellion, but the young couple faced a new threat at the hands of Communist soldiers. Bravely witnessing for Christ in spite of the violence and fear, they were accused of sedition and cruelly murdered at the ages of 27 and 28. Their courage in the face of death set an unforgettable standard for Christian martyrdom in the twentieth century.

    Inspiring and challenging reading about true heroes of the faith.
  • John Hyde: Apostle of Prayer
    by Francis McGaw
    ISBN: 0871239094
    The marvelous story of the missionary to India whose example of soul-winning through intercession is almost without parallel in the history of the church.

    Setting out for India in 1892, one could have wondered how John Hyde would fair as a missionary. His slowness of speech, slightly defective hearing, and his apparent lack of enthusiasm and zeal appeared to be a hindrance to his effectiveness. But Hyde discovered the power of intercessory prayer, and the results were staggering. He proved that prayer was an evangelical force in India: by faith he claimed one soul a day, then two, then four. Through his intercessory prayer, God was able to work in remarkable ways in conventions, churches, and personal lives. It is no surprise that he was often called "The Apostle of Prayer."

    A challenging testimony of what God can do through the life of one who is willing to seek His face!

    by Rosalind Goforth
    ISBN: 087123842X
    The remarkable story of a man whose influence is still felt in China today.

    After conversion to Christ as a young man, Jonathan Goforth eventually arrived in China with his wife Rosalind. They endured incredible hardships, including the loss of their first child to malaria. They fled for their lives from the Boxer Rebellion. Deeply inspired by a reading of Finney's Revival Lectures, Goforth set out with renewed determination and faith to spearhead a revival which rarely has been equaled in the history of modern missions.

    Goforth's amazing spiritual journey from political ambition to missionary revivalist in China.
  • Jonathan Goforth: An Open Door in China
    by Janet Benge, Geoff Benge
    ISBN: 1576581748

  • Missionary Patriarch: The True Story of John G. Paton
    by James Paton, John G. Paton
    ISBN: 1929241372
    This may be the most important narrative of missionary work you will ever read. Though John G. Paton's accounts of evangelism among the South Sea Cannibals are extraordinary, what sets this book apart is that it contains one of the finest testimonies of multi-generational love and devotion between a father and son found outside the Scriptures. In this autobiographical account, Paton describes how his father's love and training prepared him to endure bitter hardship, to persevere against unspeakably difficult circumstances, and to resist sin. Because of his father's faithful example, Paton was able to love and lead to Christ the very people who tried to eat his wife and child.

    "The appearance of my father when we parted has often through life risen vividly before my mind, and does so now as if it had been but an hour ago. In my earlier years particularly, when exposed to many temptations, his parting form rose before me as that of a guardian Angel. It is no pharisaism, but deep gratitude, which makes me here testify that the memory of that scene not only helped to keep me pure from the prevailing sins, but also stimulated me in all my studies, that I might not fall short of his hopes, and in all my Christian duties, that I might faithfully follow his shining example."

  • Samuel Morris
    by Lindley Baldwin
    ISBN: 0871239507
    The extraordinary story of the young African who came to be called "The Apostle of Simple Faith."

    While most missionary biographies detail the lives of Western missionaries, this is the story of the African missionary that God called to the United States when slavery and segregation were a way of life. Previously published under the title The March of Faith, this book details the moving life story of Samuel Morris.

    The Amazing Story of the British Evangelist Whose Heroic Efforts Touched Society's Greatest Evils

    The expressions on the faces of the men, women, and children on the filthy, smelling streets of London's East End in 1865 told the sad story: for them, life would never change. They would always be poor, always hungry. No one would champion their cause.

    As William Booth walked their streets, the British evangelist was deeply moved and revolted by the squalor. He knew he must dedicate his life to bringing new hope to these people. At that moment, the Salvation Army was born, and under its passionate and energetic founder began its growth into one of the most famous evangelistic agencies in the world.
