Hudson Taylor

25 June 1865. This date marks the establishment of the "China Inland Mission" by Hudson Taylor. Along with the Jesuit priest Matteo Ricci who preceded him for over two centuries, this Protestant missionary serves as a paragon of a contextualized missionary venture. Both preachers lived the culture of their target community in an effort to effectively communicate a Western-bred theology to an Eastern audience.
