Heavenly Man: The Remarkable True Story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun | [Brother Yun]

Heavenly Man: The Remarkable True Story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun

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.

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.

    when I can't sleep at night I listen to Audiobooks and love real stories and intense ones. Anything superficial really bores me. I need to have someone reading with a soothing voice and no music between the chapters in case I fall asleep

    "Powerfully Moving"

    I truly enjoyed this book. Powerfully moving. Definitely make you re-evaluate your relationship, and walk with the Lord. Have you really had an encounter with the Lord? How intimate are you with Him? Does He really, know you? I believe there will come a time of ultimate testing for all of us, no matter where we live; when we will really see where we are in Christ, and how strong our relationship is in Him. Truly enjoyed this book -- would definitely recommend it to others.

    "A real life changer"

    While I was listening to this book, I did not realize that there was already persecution of Christians so early in 1970's. What we did not know in the western world is how bad it was and still is. When I started the book I could not stop and had to listen right through the night till it was finish. Then a question came up: What would I do in that situation and I have to admit though I love the Lord dearly, I do not know if I would endure this kind of injures. To be so steadfast in what you believe it had to take a miracle from God to sustain this man in his Quest. To understand Gods decision behind this was difficult for me but I praise God for His mercy. I truly reccomend this book for people to understand what is going on even now.

    "A Wonderful Story"

    What an inspirational man with an incredible faith. The Lord works in mysterious ways and this was very true in Brother Yun's life.

    "Inspiring Commitment"

    How could I EVER handle being in prison for my faith? Would God show Himself faithful to me? Would His grace be sufficient like scripture teaches in 2 Corinthians 12? These questions and more are answered in this outstanding audiobook.

    Does God work supernaturally to help those suffering for the advancement of the good news of Christ? YES says Yun; not just from what scripture teaches but from experience as well.

    I found my personal faith challenged by this brother. Am I going to be a man who lives for Christ and Christ alone? Yes! Those listening to this book will be changed personally. When the power of Christ is demonstrated by someone living for heaven rather than the things of this world, we are inspired to do the same.

    "Great inspirational book!!!"

    This book is a challenge to the western Christianity. Often comfortable, reach and philosophically sound, the western Christianity has lost the meaning for its existence. The persecutions in China teach most important lesson; how to live and how to die for Jesus Christ.

    "This is a must-listen for every serious Christian"

    Compeling, Captivating, Very deep, Serious and Faith generating. If you live in the so called civilized world where the idea of believing in Christ is as real as a Greek fairy tell, you may need to have your eyes opened by listen to Brother Yun's walk with God. If you feal weak and catch yourself wondering what the christian work is all about, this book will wake you up. If you are being persecuted for your faith, this indeed is a must-hear for you. If you are one who runs to fiction because of the plot, try a true story whose plot is made in heaven. I have listened to this one many times and consider it my number one.

    "Whether or not one is religious..."

    such books as this should remind us of the great freedoms that we enjoy because of those who have stood up for religious freedom and for freedom of speech during times of great oppression in nations where one's life could be taken for daring to assert freedom of word and belief.

    "Persecution so recent, a faith so real"

    This book is very clearly written and the narrative puts you at ease with its simplicity and then astounds - such an attitude of Spiritual determination and faith in the worst of circumstances. Miracles in China; an inspiring story that has challenged my perspectives.

    "Inspirational"

    I have wanted to read this book for a long time and have now succeeded in listening to it. An amazing true story of someone who has followed Jesus regardless of the personal cost. He has certainly suffered as a result, but has had an enourmous impact, both on China and abroad. The only negative was that I felt the narration was a bit dry at times and could have had a bit more variation in tone and pace, hence 4 rather than 5 stars.
