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.

Listening while I worked around the house and while I was driving made for an informative and encouraging time, no matter where I was!
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!
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!
The persecution of the Christian church and the miracles God does for His children.
It showed how in Christ we humble our way to grace or we arrogantly succeed our way to failure in self

Suffering to heaven -Cant out Smart God
Both are good!
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.

Cry and rejoice! A great book. I encourage all to listen to this book. A Heart changer!
I will indeed listen to this book again and again. I thank the Lord for this great book and Pastor Yun life and testimony!
What a man, women and children of God. They Never gave up and God has always been faithful. This is a truly remarkable story. I hope you read it and come closer to Jesus
I absolutely loved this book! The story of this man's life is incredible and very inspiring. I listened to it during a very hard time in my life and it really touched me. It is a must read.
I haven't heard any other of his performances, but he did an excellent job narrating this book.
I completely recommend this book.
His will to survive - NOT to give up, no matter WHAT! Also, his appropriate gratitude to the Lord for who He is and what He did for Yun.
I really loved the many salvation testimonies shared throughout this story - mostly because dear brother Yun was unable to refrain from sharing the greatest gift - and FREE - with those he met.
Yun was my favorite human character.
There were many moments which moved me - but the pain and agony suffered by Yun and by others were difficult for me at times.
Have you really had an encounter with the Lord? How intimate are you with Him? Does you really know Him? There may come a time of true testing for each one of us, no matter where we live, during our walk on this earth; when we will really see where we are in Christ, and how strong our relationship is in Him. Truly enjoyed this book -- and definitely recommend it to others for their consideration.
