You've read the headlines and seen the news: government crackdowns on Chinese house churches, mass arrests, human rights violations. . . . But is it true? This intensely dramatic autobiography answers that question with the account of how God took a young half-starved boy and enabled him to stand strong for Jesus, braving horrific opposition and impossible odds.

For more than thirty years, Liu Zhenying, also known as Brother Yun, has been committed to bringing the gospel of Christ to all of China. Hunted, imprisoned, beaten, tortured, and separated from his wife and children, Brother Yun shares his story of incredible pain and suffering--and of powerful miracles and great joy. Featuring eyewitness accounts of prison escapes and healings, his words focus on the character and beauty of Jesus and challenge any reports that religious persecution is not still a daily reality for millions. Includes photos and reflections from his wife, Deling.

A life-changing true story of faith on the frontlines!

This is a great book! This book will inspire you and show you what God can do when He is invited into our lives and how He is still in control when we cant see anything good happening. Brother Yun is a man that is hungry and passionate for God and sharing Him with others. Read full review
