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

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 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.
My wife and I have served as missionaries for 36 years. brother commitment has challenged me to more fully commit my life to the scriptures, Jesus' power, authority, and my service and commitment to Him can be complete because he is Lord over every circumstance.
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.
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!
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.
