James Hudson Taylor 戴德生 foi um missionário Cristão Protestante Inglês na China, e fundador do China Inland Mission . Taylor viveu na China por 51 anos. A sociedade que ele iniciou foi responsável pelo envio de mais de 800 missionários ao país que começaram 125 escolas e diretamente resultou na conversão Cristã de 18,000 pessoas, também como no estabelecimento de mais de 300 estações de trabalho com mais de 500 colaboradores locais em todas as dezoito províncias.Taylor era conhecido por sua sensibilidade à cultura chinesa e zelo pelo evangelismo. Ele adotou a prática de usar roupas nativas da China mesmo quando isso era raro entre os missionários da época. Sob a sua liderança, a CIM era singularmente não-denominacional na prática e aceitava membros de todos os grupos Protestantes, incluindo indivíduos da classe de trabalho, mulheres solteiras e recrutas multinacionais, também. Primeiramente por causa da campanha do CIM contra o comércio do Ópio, Taylor foi citado como um dos Europeus mais significantes a visitar a China no Século XIX. O Historiador Ruth Tucker sumariza o tema de sua vida:

Taylor teve a oportunidade de pregar em várias variadades de Chinês, incluindo o Mandarin, Teochew dialeto Chaozhou, e os dialetos Wu do Xangai e Ningbo. O último destes ele conhecia o bastante para ajudar a preparar uma edição coloquial do Novo Testamento escrito nessa língua.
