Overview

This little book, designed to lead the seeking Bible reader into the very presence of God, is one of the lasting legacies of Hudson Taylor. In the obvious power of the Holy Sprit, he has unveiled the deep secrets of true intimacy with Jesus in the simplest of language. The symbol and imagery of the Song of Songs is too often neglected or misunderstood. How many of us have given up in bewilderment, trying to find the richness of meaning hidden in the figurative language? “How can I understand unless someone explains it to me…” It is safe to say that these pages will deeply satisfy all those who ask this question. To those who knew Hudson Taylor, these pages flowed right out of his everyday life. He lived what he explains here. Even more than his words, his walk with Jesus declared that he really understood intimacy with God, and the fruit of his life proved it. Some may reject this book as being too spiritual or impractical because it deals with true intimacy and actual fellowship with the unseen God of the universe. But let me remind you that the writer of these pages founded the China Inland Mission, now known as OMF International. He translated his vision into lifelong service, a ministry hardly matched by anyone today. This is really the goal of these few short chapters. They reveal an intimacy that comes from experience. They open a pathway through this little piece of God’s word that will lead you to the very heart of God—if you choose to walk along it.

Meet the Author

James Hudson Taylor founded the China Inland Mission on June 25, 1865. He knelt upon the beach at Brighton, England and “prayed for twenty-four willing, skillful laborers” to reach the inland provinces of China.

Taylor and the requested workers began work in China the next year. The China Inland Mission (CIM) quickly established itself as a new kind of mission agency. The CIM sought to take the gospel where it had scarcely been taken before – to the inland, unreached provinces of China. To do this, CIM workers contextualized themselves – wearing Chinese dress, donning Chinese hair styles and eating and living among the Chinese people. Though now not so rare, at the time such activity was revolutionary, even for missionaries.

Through the turmoil of the Boxer Rebellion (the CIM lost 58 workers and 21 children) and civil war in China, God continued to bless the mission with new workers. Eventually, the CIM became the preeminent agency in China.

However, in 1950, following the Communist victory in China, the CIM began a “reluctant exodus” out of the country. In 1953, the CIM added Overseas Missionary Fellowship (OMF) to its name and began work throughout East Asia. In 1964 OMF began accepting Asian members into the mission.

Today OMF International is a diverse evangelical mission agency of more than 1,600 workers from 30 different countries. We continue to press on to know the Lord and make him known among the peoples of East Asia.
