Biographies are wonderful opportunities for each of us to learn and grow from the experiences and testimonies of others. This book is great! Not only is the life of Gladys Aylward a story that will set you ablaze for God’s Kingdom, but the amount of work and effort that Phyllis Thompson put in to make this book possible is outstanding. Thompson conducted interviews and looked through lots of personal letters to build a full picture of Gladys’s life and ministry.
This story is packed full of danger and gospel opportunities, war zones and saved lives, prison and the sharing of the gospel. Buy the book, you will not be disappointed. A warning must be issued with books like these, it could be that you read this story and you find yourself being called to do what Gladys did; forsake all that you know to go and serve a people so that they can hear about Jesus and live forever in His presence.i.
