Christ Alone: A Pictorial Presentation of Hudson Taylor’s Life and Legacy
It can truly be said, the impact of the life and ministry of Hudson Taylor has been and continues to be tremendous among Chinese Christians as well as the Christian churches around the world. In 2005, as we remember the 100th anniversary of Hudson Taylor’s death and celebrate the 140th anniversary of his founding of the China Inland Mission (CIM), we are pleased to announce the publication of “Christ Alone – A Pictorial Presentation of Hudson Taylor’s Life and Legacy”.
Looking Back, An Autobiography
J. Hudson Taylor’s life radically changed the Christian church. His faith and godliness inspired countless believers to extraordinary faith and passion for Christ. He has been called one of the four or five most influential foreigners who came to China in the 19th century for any purpose, religious or secular. Few who read his story will remain content with the state of their own faith. His increasing thirst for God is contagious. This new edition of his autobiography is for today’s believers – to discover his model of faith, obedience, humility and dependence on God.
Husband, father, physician, evangelist, visionary and founder of the China Inland Mission – James Hudson Taylor lived his life for God with intention and purpose. In the process, God revealed to him the secret to joy and satisfaction, no matter what circumstances surrounded him.
In the course of his life Taylor knew poverty, hardship, loss, frustration and the difficulties of ministering in the challenging country of China. He knew that he could fully and completely trust and depend upon God to meet his every need, all the time, no matter how insurmountable the obstacles appeared.
The Growth of a Soul/Work of God
The classic two-volume story of Hudson Taylor and the founding of the CIM (now known as OMF). This detailed account includes many of Taylor’s personal writings that express his vision, faith and frustrations. It is also an account of the miracles that took the young mission agency into the inland provinces of China. The first volume covers Taylor’s life, the second describes the founding of the China Inland Mission.
It was the 1920s, and a young woman names Isobel Seline Miller was making her mark in the theater, social and academic world. But through her mother’s prayers and after a tragic romance, Isobel discovered peace with God. After reading about Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission, she felt a call to China, and specifically, to the Lisu people. Preparation at Moody Bible Institute was completed with honors, and eventually she sailed for China as a missionary. There she married John Kuhn whom she had first met during her training at Moody. Together they faced hardships, long separations, severe illness, war, and death itself. Yet through all this the church among the Lisu people grew in faith and the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Ascent to the Tribes
Day was breaking on the far Thailand hills. A sense of something new coming had been scattered over the mountaintops. A new name was heard on the lips of tribe after tribe. Some wistfully wondered if He had power to dispel the darkness of their bondage to demons. Others whispered His name in secret fearing the consequences of open confession, but there were a few groups who would own Him as Savior and worship Him as the Son of God.
Isobel Miller gave up God for worldly pursuits. But as graduation approached and her engagement was broken, she questioned that decision. “If You will prove to me that You are, and if You will give me peace, I will give You my whole life.” God heard Isobel’s prayers and responded. Her search ended, and He gave her a whole new life of fruitful missionary service in China.
Children of the Hills
Isobel Kuhn, with her husband John, longed to win the lovable Lisu people to Christ. She delighted in them and the simplicity of their lives. She says, “Lisuland is a place of physical hardness and spiritual luxury, but if you have ever tasted that luxury all else will be tame for ever after.” Isobel had the privilege of seeing the Spirit of God moving among an unreached people group.
Green Leaf in Drought
This is the story of the reluctant exodus, when the last China Inland Mission members were forced from Communist China. The experiences of Arthur and Wilda Mathews answer the question: Can a Christian grow in the driest circumstances?
In The Arena
“In the Arena” continues the story of Isobel Kuhn. Christians are on display, like someone condemned to die in the arena. Isobel was convinced that the trials of her life are “arena experiences” and her most valuable lessons.
Nests Above The Abyss
First published more than 60 years ago, this book has become a classic about the work of the Holy Spirit in transforming lives characterized by fear, sin and darkness into beauty, joy and the hope of the resurrection. Isobel Kuhn was able to write as she did about the Lisu people of southwest China because she lived with them and shared their spiritual battles.
Second Mile People
Six “second-mile people” were friends and colleagues whose lives made a deep impression on Isobel Kuhn. These brief character studies of their spiritual lives offer vivid examples of lifestyle Christianity.
Stones of Fire
This is the true story of Mary, a young Lisu tribeswoman, who was challenged by Isobel Kuhn to “let God break her heart.” “Stones of Fire” records her struggles and the surprising results.
Whom God Has Joined
John and Isobel Kuhn were two ordinary people who made an extraordinary commitment — to put “God first.” With transparent honesty and humor, Isobel shares stories from her life as a missionary wife in China. Her exuberance and colorful style make those far-away places seem as close as next door, while her deep faith in God speaks to the deep needs we all experience.
A Biography of John Sung
This is an honest biography of an extraordinary man. No attempt is made either to conceal or to camouflage the idiosyncrasies and spiritual defects in John Sung’s personality. At first sight it is almost surprising that God should have been pleased to prosper his ministry so greatly. He had a strong will and a hot temper. He was independent to the point of being sometimes stubborn. A rebel as a boy, he remained an individualist all his life. He could be abrupt and even rude. His wife and family must at times have felt neglected. He was certainly a scholar, with remarkable academic attainments, but his Biblical preaching was never “scholarly” and could be grotesque.
Is there any explanation of John Sung’s great power? Why did God bring salvation to so many sinners, fullness of life to so many believers and revival to so many churches through his comparatively brief ministry of only 15 years (1929 – 1944) Can we learn from his experience what are the conditions of divine blessing? This book will make every reader ask, “Why did God honour the ministry of John Sung?” It will lead the reader to ponder carefully the qualities of the worker whom God blesses and the character of the work that He prospers. And it will show the relevance that John Sung’s story still has for us in 21st Century Asia.
After the Heavy Rain
Thirteen of Reaksa Himm’s immediate family, including his parents, were brutally executed by Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge. Severely wounded, Reaksa was hidden by the bodies of his family.
He struggled free, and ultimately made his way to Canada. He found faith in Christ, but for years wrestled with bitterness, hatred and a desire for vengeance- in Cambodia, revenge is a matter of honour. After the Heavy Rain describes how Reaksa discovered what it truly means to forgive. He tracked down his family’s killers one by one, embraced them, gave them a friendship scarf and presented each with a Bible. But that was only the beginning…
Complete Surrender: A Biography of Eric Liddell
Eric Liddell, the Scottish 400m Olympic Champion from the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris was immortalised in the Oscar winning film Chariots of Fire. His story however goes far beyond the restrictions of a two hour movie that in any case was not entirely accurate with the truth of the detail of Liddell’s extraordinary but tragically short life.
Julian Wilson’s vivid biography recounts not only the highs and lows of his athletics career including his controversial decision never to run on a Sunday, but also his life after the Olympics as a missionary in war torn China. It was here that is unassuming and selfless character won him many friends despite the severity of the conditions he had to endure toward the end of his life.
God’s Faithfulness: Stories from China Inland Mission and OMF International
God’s Faithfulness is a unique anthology of forty CIM and OMF missionary stories, which testify powerfully to the faithfulness of God throughout the 150 years of our history.
They are stories of tragedy, triumph, sorrow and joy, God’s provision and many, many answers to prayer. They show ordinary men and women struggling to tell the story of Jesus across cultures and the grace of God in using stumbling words and flawed lives to bring people to faith. They show what love for God and love for East Asia’s peoples can achieve in the life-creating hands of the Holy Spirit.
Grasping Heaven is the story of a young lady doctor from Denver Dr Tami Fisk. Her journey led her to do pioneer work among the Yi minority in the Great Cold Mountains of West China. After three years her promising time in China was cut short as she was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. The ensuing story is her final journey that ultimately led to her death. A story of faith, courage and a remarkable sense of humor.
Grasping Heaven also reveals the striking parallels of Dr. Fisk and the life of Dr. Broomhall, who forty years ago was the first to work among the Yi. His time was cut short due to the communist take over. After three years he had to leave the country.
With excerpts from Tami’s journal, the book shares her anecdotes and observations of the Yi people in China, in particular her stories of being a Martian.
Help! My Halo’s Falling
If you’re looking for a biography full of glamour and adventure, depicting haloed saints sacrificing life and limb on some far-off heathen shore, look elsewhere. But if you want to know what it’s really like to become a missionary, read on. Laugh and cry with Larry and his wife Paula through language study, adjustment to an international mission, finding identity and raising children in a new culture.
Through sickness after sickness, floods, robberies and the pressures of living in an intractable society, discover what it takes to bring Thai people to know Christ and to see a church beginning to grow. Larry and Paula’s first term didn’t produce even a hint of a halo, but it did produce in them a greater determination to be more like their master, Jesus.
Live To be Forgotten
A portrait of the second General Director of CIM, D.E. Hoste. This bilingual narrative gives us a glimpse of the spiritual journey of a humble servant leader. From his conversion, he was fully committed and on fire. He showed humble perseverance even in his application with the CIM, eventually going to China as one of the Cambridge Seven. His humility was further tested as he worked under his co-worker and local leaders. Amidst the crisis during the Boxer Uprising in 1900, he succeeded Hudson Taylor to lead the CIM for more than 30 years. In 1929 despite the political instability causing many missionaries to return home, Hoste issued a call for 200 new workers for China, bringing CIM into the “Forward Movement”.
Through his life we can see how God moulded his servant leader. May God use this book to encourage and challenge the younger generation of today.
Earthed largely in the soils of three nations, Chern Chern’s stories are a powerful testimony to the grace and the power of God at work. The faith and faithfulness of them as a family honed through the anvil of trials, uncertainties and a deep trust in God over the years fills every page of this book. Simple, straightforward and down-to-earth, Chern Chern’s uncanny ability to turn every incident, both happy and painful ones, into great teaching lessons of faith and discipleship will enrich every reader. A great storyteller who rejuvenates every lizard tail and causes it to pulsate with life as she connects with Scripture and saints of old.
Malayan Story: The story of work of China Inland Mission-Overseas Missionary Fellowship in Malaya in the 1950s
The author, Amy Moore was 21 when she graduated from Melbourne Bible Institute and then sailed for China with the China Inland Mission. Allocated to work in the Shaanxi Province, there she met her husband, Percy at a field conference and married in 1935. After returning to China in 1940, they carried on an effective work in the Province until they were expelled by Communism in 1950 and moved to Sydney. Two years later, they were sent to Malaya to launch a new work for the mission and there they laboured for seven years. When Amy passed on in 2005, her first draft of Malayan Story was completed and her son, Ray has since produced and published this book.
“Much of the spiritual teaching one hears does not seem to work. But I found that the Cross of Jesus Christ worked. I felt like a man perishing of thirst, to whom some beautiful, clear cold water had begun to flow … I had so much to learn! It seemed as if God was saying: ‘You are crying to me to do a big work among the Lisu; I am wanting to do a big work in you yourself.'”
James Fraser was only 22 years old when he abandoned a promising engineering career and went to China. At first sight of the Lisu tribespeople of Yunnan province he felt an immediate affection for them. For the rest of his life, he traveled on horseback over rugged mountains, laboring to bring the Lisu the good news of Christ. Packed with personal letters, insightful anecdotes, and riveting stories of missionary life in China, this superb biography by his daughter shines with God’s constant faithfulness and power over evil.
As an old proverb goes, “A rolling stone gathers no moss.” With a career in Christian broadcasting spanning more than 50 years, David Huntley has worked, taught and preached in studios, stations and churches around the world.

No Moss is his amazing story of how the Lord directed and provided for him and his family, through their years as “rolling stones” all over the globe.
Out of My Brokenness into His Calling
Out of my Brokenness into His Calling is a collection of lessons and insights from a life of walking with God. Pauline walks us through her personal journey of faith, from her youth to being a family in the mission field. In it, Pauline bared her soul and life and showed that when the disciples of Jesus are authentic about their struggles and bring their brokenness to the Lord, then at His cross they will experience, reconciliation and victory, becoming “more than conquerors through Him who loved us”.
Point Me To The Skies
The story of ambush had shaken them. ‘They are going to force you out. But you won’t make it to Xichang.’ ‘They will shoot you… on the mountain pass.’ As the Communists gained control of China, foreigners were no longer welcome.
The team packed what they could onto their mules and set out across the mountains. As they ascended the icy slopes, bleak mists closed in. The paths were treacherous, the future uncertain.
Joan had spent years trying to get to China, facing setbacks, discouragement and opposition. But she was sure God wanted her in China. Finally, reaching the ‘Great Cold Mountains’, things seemed to fall into place. Living and working with the Broomhall family, Joan felt, for the first time in her life, that she belonged.
Now she was being asked to leave. Did God really have a plan?
As Joan looks back, 60 years on, God’s faithfulness and sovereignty are clear. Her remarkable story shows us that there are some lessons we can only learn with hindsight.
Sacrificial Love: Portraits of CIM Missionaries in Gansu & Xinjiang
“For the love of Christ constraineth us,” (2 Cor. 5:14a, KJV). This was the motivation that sent missionaries to serve under the China Inland Mission (CIM), founded in 1865 by James Hudson Taylor. Because its thrust was “inland”, here we have biographies of those that served in Gansu and Xinjiang in the far northwest. In spite of floods, famines, earthquakes, wars and rumours of wars, sickness, death (often tragic), they stood with their Chinese colleagues, friends through thick and thin. Truly, it was Christ’s sacrificial love that sent them and empowered them. These missionaries portrayed in this book are vivid examples of faith and obedience to Christ even unto death.
The Tears of My Soul
Sokreaksa was a young member of a large family in Siem Reap, Cambodia. When the country fell to the Khmer Rouge in 1975, his family was forced to join the exodus to the jungle villages. As the soldiers consolidated their grip, deaths increased- those who complained, the educated, an informer or disliked by; they were ‘sent to study’ (killed). Teenage boys were brainwashed into amoral, vindictive thugs. Then the day came when the family was marched to their grave dug in a jungle clearing. One by one they fell. Gravely wounded, Sokreaksa was covered by the bodies of who were once his family members. His executioners walked away laughing. That morning, Sokreaksa climbed from the mass grave, hatred burning from his heart. Could he possibly forgive his family’s killers?
Where your treasure is
A little over two years after it welcomed the first Japanese to its Sunday worship service, Itoi Church, located in a small town in Hokkaido, baptised its first believer in 1982. During the baptism service, the visibly nervous young believer stood up to share his testimony. It was an act that took great courage, but it marked the beginning of an amazing chain of events that would lead to more conversions and baptisms.
In this missionary’s autobiography, Melville Szto recounts his pioneering church-planting experiences in Japan – as well as his own spiritual journey – and gives readers inspiring glimpses of the grace of God at work in yielded lives and the power of God at work in “hard” places.
There Your Heart Will Be Also
In his second book, There Your Heart Will Be Also following up from his first, Where Your Treasure Is, it continues Melville and Salome’s fascinating story of serving God in Singapore and Japan for the next 15 years until their retirement from active overseas missionary service in 2010. The key word in the title of the book is ‘Heart’, and this book, not surprisingly, is full of heart. This book tells the story of how God calls and equips, protects and provides, and reaches out to the lost world through hearts of His servants that are fully committed to Him and His will. The true Treasure of our lives has to do with Christ and His Gospel of salvations and when we realise this, our hearts will be consecrated to do nothing else but His glorious will.
Entangled in addiction, abuse and idol worship, three women seemed beyond hope. An engaging story that paints a vivid picture of the challenges of contemporary Taiwan, a society where the traditional and ultra-modern live in unresolved tension. As these three lives demonstrate, the barriers to the Gospel are formidable, but still God is at work. Book previously named “Dead Women Walking”.
Dr Bruce Waltke: “Jennifer Su McIntyre gives a glimpse of God’s glory in the lives of three women who had lived their lives in the dark side of Taiwan culture. Her writing is lucid, insightful and edifying. She knows the depths of human depravity and the heights of God’s grace. This is a book that I will remember forever”

A Christian’s Pocket Guide to the Japanese
Globalisation means that increasingly we meet people from a wider variety of nations and cultures.

A Secret Hope
Neighbouring villages considered the remote village of Taguangu, Philippines, trash. Its reputation was well-deserved. Tanguangu was little more than a den of loafers, brawlers, drunkards, gamblers and thieves.
Desperate for change, three Manobo believers asked God to send a missionary to Tanguangu.
At that very time, God called Ria Zebua from the tiny island of Nias in Indonesia to take the gospel to the Manobo people. But to whcih village shoudl Ria go?
A Secret Hope tells how God directed her and a team of Filipino missionaries to the Manobo in Taguangu – that lair of crooks and ruffians. there they God do the impossible again and again.
Weaving together stories that reveal gripping, eye-opening, and hope-inspiring realities about the urban poor in the Philippines, Patrick Hobbs takes readers into the lives of men, women, and youth who daily face the challenges of life in the slums of the mega-city.
“I couldn’t stop reading… Dawn Harvest if an easy read about real people… set in a fictitious urban poor settlement. The grassroots work of Bukang Liwayway (Dawn for the Poor) has brought hope and new beginnings to many in the urban slums.” – Dr. Lee Wanak, Program Director, Center for Transformational Urban Leadership, Asian Theological Seminary.
Jonathan in the Middle Kingdom
This book chronicles the adventures of a first term missionary working in a “creative access country”. This powerfully written book is particularly aimed to challenge people 20-35 years of age.
Myths & Missionaries
Thanks to our information-rich society and the availability of travel, a lot of ignorance about the mission field has been discarded. Churches seem much better educated about the nature and needs of the mission field.
But what about the missionaries themselves? What are the facts and fiction about them? What are they like? What do they need? Many North American churches are content to keep their missionary clothed in Superman’s costume. They prefer not to probe too deeply beneath the surface. The secular media often goes to the extreme, zeroing in on Clark Kent, and ridiculing him for his human fallibility.
The truth obviously lies somewhere between these two extremes, and if we want to pray intelligently for and support our missionaries, we must make a greater effort to separate the fantasies from the facts.
When You Cross-Cultures: Vital Issues Facing Christian Missions
Written by the late Jim Chew who served as a missionary with The Navigators, this book was born from his concern that of these ‘two-thirds world’ missionaries and lay workers (as well as many from ‘developed’ lands) are entering upon cross-cultural work with inadequate preparation for that increasingly complex task. This means that they are being subjected to unnecessary and avoidable stresses and strains. From Jim’s wide experience as a trainer of candidates, and supervisor of missionaries, especially under the auspices of The Navigators, he shares keen insights that will provide invaluable counsel to both candidates and missionaries who are struggling with complex problems of inter-cultural adaptations.

Jesus Says Go
This book is for everyone who wants to bring the gospel of Christ to another culture. What doe it mean to enter another world? To leave friends and family? To use your training in a radically different way? And to be a servant? In an age when terrorists will die for their beliefs, what does it mean to us that Jesus said “Go”?
Whether you are considering missions as a life-long calling or a short-term missions trip, there are many factors to consider – family, acclimating to a foreign culture, monetary support, etc. Even our expectations need to be realistic and well-founded. Missionary stories of all types from around the world illustrate the problems, solutions, and ongoing challenges of the missionary life.
Radical. Extremist? Terrorist? Christian? These days being radical is associated with violence and intolerance. But what does it mean for a Christian to be a radical disciple of Jesus? To parade around campus in your Christian hoodie? To wear your cross-marked wrist strapping to rugby? To get up before everyone else to read your Bible and pray?
Roger Steer has drawn together a collection of real life instances from Hudson Taylor’s remarkable life, with each one teaching, by example, the true meaning of radical discipleship. Hudson Taylor was a radical disciple. He seemed unremarkable in many ways and was only 21 when he began his ministry but he was committed and passionate about Jesus. He broke social and cultural expectations to remain true to the gospel. Far from being a negative thing, Taylor’s life shows us that being a radical disciple is about relationship-developing, social-working and Kingdom-building. It is about extremes of joy, peace, love and dependence on God despite suffering, poverty and ridicule.
Sensible Behaviour: How to Avoid Indiscreet Relationships
This is a time when we are seeing many complex problems in relationships between men and women in our society. If we do not give Christians specific teaching on how to use Biblical principles in relating to the opposite sex, they could easily end up doing things that are common in society but not acceptable to Christians. This booklet aims to meet this need for sane Scriptural advice in this crucial area.

The Heart of Godly Leadership
“This is not a book of leadership theory. We have enough of those already. We need to develop skills that are part of the requirements for effective leadership. Allan tells us how, and the appeal of the book is that this is authentic stuff from a man of God who knows what he is talking about.” David Pickard.
Allan Webb’s book gets straight to the point about what makes a good Christian leader : Influence, Spiritual Authority, Vision and Faith, Servanthood, Lifelong Development, Calling and Equipping, and Competencies.
Also available in Chinese.
“The power of prayer has never been tried to its full capacity in any church. If we want to see mighty wonders of divine grace and power wrought in the place of weakness, failure and disappointment, let the whole Church answer God’s standing challenged; “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knows not.”
~ J. Hudson Taylor

Bend the Church, Reach the World
Prayer is the precursor to revival, sand revival is the precursor to an upsurge in missions. Then bending of the Church through prayer is the root of revival, and the reaching of the world through missions is the fruit.

回首百年殉道血 – 1900年義和團事件 殉道宣教士的生命故事
1900年夏天在中國爆發了義和團之亂，令舉世震驚。數月間，數以千計信徒被殺，189名宣教士及其家眷殉難。 這本書就記錄了這些宣教士的生平事蹟。 189篇生命的故事，由蒙召上路、傳道服侍以至蒙難，讓我們近距離地進入這些殉道宣教士的生命，體會他們愛中國人、愛主的心腸，了解他們的國度胸襟和眼 界，如何在百多年前，為了堅守從上而來的呼召，無懼萬水千山，深入邊陲，至死忠心，以他們的血，灌溉了中華大地。 此書是作者繼《捨命的愛——中國內地會宣教士小傳》之後的力作，全書700多頁，史料詳實，圖文並茂，讓讀者更全面、準確、清楚地了解這段史實，聽見殉道 者心聲，認清宣教使命的代價，並從中領略神在背後的奇妙作為。
一九二四年巴黎奧運會，英國短跑名將李愛銳（Eric Liddell，前譯李岱爾），被公認能穩奪一百碼金牌，但他知悉初賽安排在主日時，毅然拒絕參賽。對他來說，尊崇永生的神比一切榮耀更重要。結果他改跑不被看好的四百四十碼，而勇奪金牌，更締造世界紀錄。 這發人深省的一幕，隨著電影烈火戰車的描述，深印人心。可惜，電影在他奪得奧運金牌的高潮後便劃下句號。 《直奔金牌》一書，帶您一瞥銀幕以外的李愛銳生平。他生於中國，死於中國，也葬於中國。奪金後翌年，他追隨父兄腳蹤，返回中國宣教，在抗日戰爭的動亂歲 月，奔走城鄉救災賑饑，經歷槍林彈雨、土匪搶劫和日軍扣押，卻因事奉的喜樂輕看這些險阻。 李愛銳身體力行，鼓勵年青學子以及城鄉牧者，要準確地研讀聖經，忠實地解釋，嚴格地實行，並靠聖靈得力，持之以恆。對他來說，聖靈之於信徒，就如運動精神 之於運動員。
僳僳使徒富能仁（James O. Fraser） 在二十二歲的盛年，放棄了錦繡前程，由英國來到雲南邊荒，為基督工作，也在基督裡成熟，最後埋骨在那裡。他的女兒 Eileen Crossman 從他自己的資料中，向今日的讀者顯示這位聖徒靈裡得勝的隱祕。
「有人強迫你走一里路，你就同他走二里。」太五41 在這個人人爭取自我權益的世代，主耶穌的教訓是否已不合時宜呢？時移勢易，楊宓貴靈這本寫於三十年代末期的書，對我們還是否適切？作者在前言指出，第一里 路是必須的，但第二里路是救主以慈愛發出的邀請。願我們被這些如同雲彩的見證人所激勵，用愛心回應主的呼喚，以第二里路作馨香的祭，獻在主前。

- 整裝上路 － 力求裝備自己，操練聖靈恩賜
- 恩主導我程 － 耶穌乃領袖的典範

讓世界不一樣 – 成為差傳教會 (第二版)
门徒培育一直都是教会领袖特别关注，却常常不知从何着手的关键话题。常常的困惑是：从未被培育，怎么培育人？或是尝试培育门徒但屡屡受挫？ “一对一门徒培育”是门训者和门徒在基督里一起共学共成长，彼此扶持，越来越像耶稣的过程。作者解开我们的心结，除去想要开始门徒培育者的惧怕，以为必须”足够好”才可以培育门徒。因为门徒培育本是”本于神，倚靠神，归于神”的旅程。 《一对一门徒培育》让门训者既明白神的心意，又了解每一个独特的个人，以及神要怎样在每个有独特经历的个人身上得荣耀！
