Description

What this is not: An exhaustive history book. This books details the amazing story of seven young men from Cambridge Univ. who dedicated their lives to mission service, beginning in China.

What this is not: An exhaustive history book. It is also not really about China, but is focused on faith and commitment and taking Christianity seriously enough to give up the world for the Lord. It's less than 100 pages so you'll still have time to give up the world for the Lord. Some of the story assumes that one knows about British culture, but the message is nonetheless excellent.

Harold Schofield, a brilliant Oxford doctor who had laboured as a missionary in China for many years, was on his knees praying, 'Lord, give me missionaries from British Universities to help in China'.The day he died, D. E. Hoste applied to Hudson Taylor for mission work in the China Inland Mission (Now Overseas Missionary Fellowship). Schofield's prayer was answered as seven Cambridge students volunteered to leave behind cosy lives of wealth and privilege to serve God in whatever way they were led.These seven inspired thousands of others to think seriously of missionary service. Included among them was C.T. Studd, captain of England and the finest cricketer of his day - if he could give all that up, then so could anyone!The story of these seven are an inspiration that God can take people and use them in incredible ways - if they are willing to serve.As Pollock says in his book 'Theirs is the story of ordinary men, and thus may be repeated'. Will it be repeated in your life?

If you dare to be stirred up by the missionary spirit prevailing in the 1800's to the 1900's, you must read this book. Today millions of people are being displaced by famine, war, political regimes, and tyrannical rulers. They are hoping to find meaning and a better life. But who will go to them? These young men gave up fortunes, careers, fame, and comfort to reach the masses of people who were "...having no hope, without God, in the world."

A missionary in China prayed for many years that God would give him missionaries from British Universities to help in China. One by one, God began to work in the hearts of 7 different men and eventually brought them together to fulfill that very prayer.
These men weren't just ordinary people of their day and many great things were expected of them in the world. One was even acknowledged as the greatest cricket player of his day. But God's calling upon each of their lives was more important to them than anything the world had to offer. They gave up much to give God their all. I was awed by their commitment to God.
It was great to see how God orchestrated things to bring this group together and their obedience and willingness led to a nation forever being changed. God does indeed answer prayers!

After reading other Christian biographies--including one of my all time favorites also written by Pollock (Hudson Taylor & Maria)--I was very disappointed by The Cambridge Seven. I feel that I learned more about the social lives and school activities of the people more than their experiences of the Lord.

What this is: Another smoothly written entertaining, inspiring and informative pop history book (Christian History) by John Pollock. John Pollock died earlier this year (age 88) and for a sense of time - his life overlapped with all of the Cambridge Seven, who left for China in the 1880's. For evangelical Christians this book should be pretty exciting and for me it was awesome. It is really a follow up to Pollock's wonderful biography of D.L. Moody ("Moody"), who had a direct impact on the Seven.

What this is not: An exhaustive history book. It is also not really about China, but is focused on faith and commitment and taking Christianity seriously enough to give up the world for the Lord. It's less than 100 pages so you'll still have time to give up the world for the Lord . . .

The author starts slow, but he finds his stride in the final few chapters. If you are interested in missions and missionaries, you'll be glad you read this.

Hi, this book narrates the story of seven students who felt love for the souls in china and russia, they were called to be missionaries abroad... For me it was really worth reading it. The movement they started is now a worldwide student movement present in more than 150 country members.
