This is the most interesting biography I have ever read. I vaguely remember seeing this gentleman, Dr. McClure, on television many years ago. It was probably when he was Moderator of the United Church of Canada. I had no idea that he made such a contribution to helping the Chinese people. The early years, from his birth in 1900 till WWII are especially fascinating. Munroe Scott is a wonderful story teller. Chinese history in those years comes to life on the pages of this book.
