The Heavenly Man: The Remarkable True Story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun

The dramatic autobiography of one of China's dedicated, courageous, and intensely persecuted house church leaders.

This is the gripping story of how God took a young, half-starved boy from a poor village in Henan province and placed him on the front line for Jesus, in the face of impossible odds. Instead of focusing on the many miracles or experiences of suffering, however, Yun prefers to focus on the character and beauty of Jesus. Interspersed with his personal account are contributions from his wife, Deling, made mostly during her husband's frequent periods of imprisonment. You will remember where you were the first time you read this life story. It's a watershed book that will turn the reader to prayer and praise. It deserves comparison with past classics such as Tortured for Christby Richard Wurmbrand, or the Life of Watchman Nee.
