Lives From A Black Tin Box

Prudence Bell, Ronald Clements

Price: S$20.86

In 1900, Herbert Dixon and his Welsh wife, Elizabeth, were brutally murdered for their Christian faith in Xinzhou City, Shanxi Province, China. Lives from a Black Tin Box records not only their tragedy, but also the ultimate victory as Prudence Bell visits the scene of their deaths and receives a moving welcome from the Chinese church her great-grandparents founded 120 years before.

An amazing collection of family documents has enabled Prudence to capture vividly the missionaries’ lives; their childhoods in London and South Wales, their marriage, and their deep faith. Their story is also poignant testimony to the power of a mother’s prayer over six succeeding generations.
