Journey Against One Current: The Spiritual Autobiography of a Chinese Christian
At the age of 72, and after years of teaching, Julia Duan left China and returned to student life at Whitworth College, Spokane, Washington, and later at Moody Bible Institute. Her story was discovered by Linda Hunt, a writing professor at Whitworth, when she read Julia's description of her first night in the labor camp. Touched by this chapter in Julia's life, Linda sugggested she write her entire story. She prayed and ultimately agreed to let her life "be a spectacle to the world for God's glory." Since journals were not allowed in the labor camp, Julia set about writing her story from memory, first in English and then in Chinese.
