    1. Powerful end of the story of Taylor's life and work. These two books have profoundly stirred my faith in the God works wonders among the nations through weak men who depend on Him.Unlike the first volume, it was a challenge to get all the way through this second volume. This volume lacks continuity, leaving the main trail of Taylor's life to expound on other people and the student volunteer movement, and allot of unnecessary details. I've read the much highly abridged version of these two volume [...]

    2. Along with volume one, which accounts for Taylor's childhood years and the beginning of his work in China, this collection should top the list of anyone interested in the history of foreign missions. While the massive work (around 1,000 pages) is a serious undertaking, it is well worth the effort as one sees the power of God's hand on display at every turn.

    3. Detailed account of the life and work of the man and the early history of the CIM. Sometimes difficult, but a rewarding read.

    4. What can I say other than 'outstanding'? What a testimony of faith and trust in God, and a desire for the gospel to be proclaimed, this man had.
