of the book that have subseuently been released the book that have subseuently been released different publishers some with fancy forewards added in But the version I would recommend is the one edited by Gregg Lewis which was authorised by the Overseas Mission Fellowship the mission organisation that Hudson Taylor founded and updated the book s language to reflect a modern and readable toneSadly despite the Gregg Lewis revised edition being over two decades old being first published in 1990 as far as I m aware there s no Kindle edition available for it et so The Green Ghost and Other Stories you ll have to look to paperbackhardback to find that edition Ifou find the page for the Gregg Lewis edition of the book then click Kindle Edition it takes ou here which is misleading as these are clearly different booksFor the reasons stated above I can only really give the Kindle edition 3 stars rather than the 5 I otherwise would have awarded it had the above issues been addressed From Hudson Taylor s letters and journal Written by his son Really gives simple how it s of his secret A Scripture comes to mindto cease striving Hudson Found That It Is that it is to live the Christian life by self effort When He ielded and surrendered and became aware of God s presence he has divine power to do what the Bible says we are to doSee also the CD set for the 60 Day Challenge by Dennis Clark of Kingdom Life church Excellent and inspiring story of Hudson Taylor whose secret was prayer At 21 he left for China with little backing and uickly learned to read and speak the language no small task Similar to the Apostle Paul who took.
