Robert Morrison was a cross-cultural missionary pioneer that changed the trajectory of Christianity in China forever. He planted a foothold in China and paved the way for every Protestant believer in China today, yet very little has ever been written about him – until now.

More than 200 years ago, Robert Morrison had a dream to get the Bible into the most populated nation on earth, but that dream was said to be unattainable. Early skeptics complained that the Chinese language was simply too complicated, foreign, and ancient for anyone to tackle. Added to that, 250 years ago, it was against the law for Chinese to teach their language to foreigners. Anyone caught printing or distributing a Bible in the Chinese language could be executed. But Robert Morrison dared to do it anyway.
This is the first detailed biography written about Robert Morrison in over a hundred years and maybe the most comprehensive ever!
Facing insurmountable opposition, this book tells how Morrison published the first Chinese translation of the New Testament, produced the first Chinese-English dictionary, baptized the first Protestant believer in China, established the first Chinese evangelist, translated the first version of the Confucian Classics directly to English, and started the first English-Chinese educational institution.
Finally, read for the first time how Morrison gave the ultimate sacrifice to translate, print, smuggle, and distribute the entire Chinese Bible inside China – how he lost friends and loved ones, buried two children, a wife, and eventually died on the mission field, thousands of miles away from the land of his birth.
