Excerpt

The central committee believes that it has been led providentially to the study of China at a great crisis in her history. Until November the Committee confidently expected to publish a book on another subject; but the serious illness of the author compelled a sudden change. The Committee was led to write to Dr. Headland who responded to the request that he write a book on present conditions in China with a time limit of six weeks. He has completed the task and the Committee issues this unique book on China on the date intended. Dr. Headland from his long residence in Peking has had the advantage of observing at close range the remarkable events and characters of the past decade, while Mrs. Headland, in her position of physician to the princesses, had unusual opportunities to study the women of the highest class. And now China has this day, February 12th, been declared a Republic. With the study of our book begins a new era. Sun Yat Sen, who has done so much to free China, is a rare man, the highest type of Christian patriot. The future of China now depends largely on the attitude of the Christian Church and her response to the needs of the Chinese. How marvellously "God is working His purpose out." He has opened the doors and waits for us to say whether the earth shall be filled with His knowledge.May the study of this book lead us all to a new understanding of His plan and power and to a new devotion to His cause.
