''This is a touching book. While reading it, I have really felt the greatness of Timothy Richard in all that he did for China. I was inspired by his vision and mission and amazed at how vision can give meaning and purpose to life, whether there is endorsement from others or not. Richard's vision drove him to an unknown land where he contributed all his life's effort to education in its highest sense, leaving a significant legacy.''
--Wing On Lee, Dean of Education Research, National Institute of Education, Singapore
''This is a much-needed book and it fills a gap in the literature. Obviously Timothy Richard was one of the most important missionaries in China who made tremendous contributions to China's modernization in multiple areas. . . . This book is a good start and I hope it will stimulate more research on Timothy Richard and his multiple contributions.''
--Fenggang Yang, Director, Center on Religion and Chinese Society, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
''This remarkable book reflects much sensitive research within a wider framework of cross-cultural dialogue across generations. Eunice Johnson has addressed her theme with diligence and insight, and the foreword by Ruth Hayhoe and afterword by Aisi Li add to its charm.''
--Mark Bray, UNESCO Chair Professor in Comparative Education, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China --Wipf and Stock Publishers
