Tailum Jan

“This is the story of the way God called out a simple woman of a little known tribe in the wilds of Upper Burma. The story of Tailum Jan is written to recount God’s wonderful grace in dealing with an individual soul, and in order to arouse prayer-interest on behalf of her little known tribe, fast bound by the chains of devil worship and tribal custom, and other similar tribes as yet unreached on the mountain frontiers of Burma.”

This is how BCMS missionary AT Houghton began his book, first published in 1930, which has become a familiar and well-loved companion to many a child since. For adults too, it tells the story of God’s faithfulness and the saving power of the gospel in one woman’s life.

Back in print for the first time in nearly 90 years, this true story is set to inspire a new generation of readers and bring back fond memories for those who know it of old. Above all, it underlines God’s continuing grace to his people in all parts of the world.

With a new introduction by Tim Houghton, the grandson of the author.
