A Foreign Devil in China

This is the remarkable story of Nelson Bell and his family who served as missionaries to China from 1916 to 1941, including areas that were occupied by Japan. He was a gifted surgeon and Bible teacher who founded the magazine, Christianity Today, with his son-in-law, Billy Graham and who served as moderator of the Presbyterian Church USA’s 1972 General Assembly. His son, Clayton Bell, served as senior pastor to one of the largest US Presbyterian churches, Highland Park Presbyterian Church, Dallas, Texas. A truly inspirational life and wonderful story. Bell’s love for the Chinese he served brought him the native name “the Bell who is the lover of the people.”
