Really enjoyed this book. Its a quick read that keeps you turning the page. The writing is fair enough, I just wish that the chapters were broken up more so you could leave off and pick up at convenient times when reading. At any rate, the content is good. I really admire this man’s faith and dedication even through the loss of so many loved ones (five kids and three wives) most of whom were lost on the mission field in China. The stories were also fascinating, not only because they spoke of another culture (North China) but of a whole other time (the early 1900’s). Its remarkable for me to think about how quickly I can get to the work in Tanzania or come back to the states in a given month, but they would travel for months and stay for years whether in China or on furlough. Altogether, a good book that I’d recommend.
