Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alfred James Broomhall (6 December 1911 - 11 May 1994), a.k.a. A. J. Broomhall, was a British Protestant Christian medical missionary to China, and author and historian of the China Inland Mission (renamed as Overseas Missionary Fellowship, OMF International in 1964 and based in Singapore). "Jim" Broomhall was born in Chefoo (Yantai), Shandong, China, in 1911, the son of Benjamin Charles Broomhall and his wife Marion, missionaries to China with the Baptist Missionary Society. The Broomhalls were a missionary family, and Jim was the third generation to be involved in such work. His grandfather, Benjamin Broomhall, had been the general secretary of the China Inland Mission for 20 years and had married Amelia, sister of the founder of the agency, James Hudson Taylor. His uncle, Marshall Broomhall was the most famous of Benjamin's sons as a missionary and historian - a professional pattern repeated in Jim's life.show more
