This book is an illustrated version of the original Chinese Diamonds for the King of Kings by Rosalind Goforth. “The following sketches are as photographically true as my knowledge of Chinese life and people can make them. They are written primarily as an answer to the oft-met questions, “Do missions pay?” and, “After all, are there any real Christians in China?”
We missionaries are frequently told that the average church member at home has come to think of missionaries’ letters as “too dry to read.” Wherefore, my attempt to give missionary facts in a different, possibly more readable, form. With what success remains to be seen. The little book is sent forth with the earnest hope and prayer that those who read these sketches may come to see the truth of what Paul said: “God hath made of ONE BLOOD all men under the heaven.” – Rosalind Goforth.
