Publisher's Summary

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 Christ by Richard Wurmbrand, or the Life of Watchman Nee.

    Story
    "Most encouraging, enlightening Christian book!"
    What made the experience of listening to Heavenly Man the most enjoyable?

    Listening while I worked around the house and while I was driving made for an informative and encouraging time, no matter where I was!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was reminded and affirmed in my belief that the Holy Spirit is powerfully moving and saving and performing mighty miracles today, just like He did in the book of Acts and throughout the New Testament in the Bible. I've always known there's more than what I've seen in the American Christian church.... this is just further confirmation!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    This is a tough one. Brother Yun's favorite is when God helped him escape from a maximum security prison by walking on instantly healed broken legs and going through 3 iron gates in front of dozens of security guards, untouched and unimpeded. I guess that's my favorite too!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The persecution of the Christian church and the miracles God does for His children.

    Story
    "A Pastors walk of love and obedience to God."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Heavenly Man to be better than the print version?

    Both are good!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Breathtaking testimony!! It made me stop and think about the Church today in the West!!! He a Christian Pastor with his powerful relationship with the Lord. His faith, his joy, and his courage in the face of such cruelty, hard staggering trials, imprisonment, mind boggling Deprivation yet he went through this all for the love of God, the lost, and His Word. He tells us how God was with him, comforted, and guided him. Great Results: The Church grew, Lives were changed, unlovely loved, people healed, even many of the worst of mankind were saved; by grace becoming the some of the best of citizens in world and born into God eternal Kingdom as well. Like David this man is after the heart of our Lord and Savior. His life is more than a text book example of walking in the light of God love, and in obedience, no matter the cost. His staggering statements of the Churches sin in the West of being so lukewarm or backslide is compelling to get one to stop, think, and pray. As a Christian, in the light of his walk with the Lord in total obedience, I must ask myself the following questions. Is Jesus my first love? Am I walking in total obedience in my walk with the Lord? PRAYING!: "God change me and help the Church also to put You first" Praying: Psalms 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. K.J.V. in Public Domain


    Which character – as performed by Cristofer Jean – was your favorite?

    All!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry and rejoice! A great book. I encourage all to listen to this book. A Heart changer!


    Any additional comments?

    I will indeed listen to this book again and again. I thank the Lord for this great book and Pastor Yun life and testimony!

    "Simply Amazing!"

    What an amazing story! It's like reading a modern day version of the book of Acts. This book is an eye opener. Many Christians have no idea what persecution or suffering for the Gospel is until we read this book.

    Story
    "credible source, straight from the heart"

    Sometimes you hear someone speak or read something and your heart hurts. You know that it's true, and you empathize with them. I give credit that my life is a sham compared to his but his humility makes me believe I can achieve what he has if God has mercy on me.

    "Eye Opening"

    This is a phenomenal book offering a true to life picture of life in the Underground church in China. Simple to read, hard to read about the times of mistreatment by prison officials. Honors the Lord Jesus, and enoutaging to my faith!

    "Encouragement to follow Christ, no matter the cost"

    I'm honored to be able to refer to Brother Yun as a brother in Christ. Our Lord certainly has blessed him with much faith to carry the Gospel near and far. I only wish the book was longer so many more could be encouraged even further to follow Christ, no matter the cost.
