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.

    "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.

    Story
    "As a Catholic"

    I am deeply warmed by Brother Yun's testimony. As someone raised by unreligious parents, and who found Christianity through God's providence and presence in people like Brother Yun, I am confirmed in my faith that Blessed are the poor in spirit, those who mourn, those who are meek, those who seek righteous news and justice, those who are merciful, those who who are pure in heart, those who are peacemakers, and those who are willing to suffer for the name of Christ. Brother Yun gave me much courage through his humility and obedience to the Lord. If only I could decrease and let Jesus increase in similar ways as this man! My heart could resonate with similar levels of peace. Brother Yun, I am grateful for your witness.

    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!

    "Wow, what an incredible disciple for Christ Jesus"

    I was convicted and strengthened by the struggle believers in China face simply to survive. Many things in this book were difficult to hear, but their incredible faith and desire to spread the Gospel was inspiring.

    "Definitely remarkable!"

    And to think that persecution like this might be coming soon to North America. It takes courage, boldness, wisdom...but mostly obedience to the voice of God. This book cannot leave you unchanged.
