God took an ordinary, exuberant, fun-loving teen and prepared him to share the gospel message across the globe. A Sharpened Arrow shines out with the truth that God is God of all comfort; that He is true to His Word during tragedies and seemingly unbelievable situations. Missionaries and grieving families alike will be blessed by the practical–yet–personal lessons from the life of Ian Taylor. Readers will be challenged to prepare their hearts for God's calling and will be encouraged that God can turn anyone's life into a work of His glory.

A Sharpened Arrow is truly a book with a message for everyone. 


Ian Taylor, a native Australian, has served the Lord in church-planting, teaching, printing, and publishing ministries across three continents. After 20 years in Colombia as a commended missionary, he moved to the U.S. to help establish a Spanish literature ministry and start an assembly among the Spanish-speaking Hispanics of West Palm Beach, Florida. He also serves on the Boar of Trustees at Emmaus Bible College, In Dubuque Iowa, and the Board of Directors of ECS Ministries. Ian now lives in Kenosha, Wisconsin with his wife, Barbara. He is a father to six adult children and the proud grandfather of twelve grandchildren.
