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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Absolutely brilliant!

What faith and strength brother yun had in the Lord. His life journey for the Gospel, brought tears to my eyes, and made me grateful, to be born and living where I am in the UK.
His testimonies of the miracles God did for him, brought more tears, but they were of joy! God is a good and faithful Father to His children, and all things work for good for those who are the called for His purposes. An truly amazing book to listen to or read, it helps to strengthen your own faith, it will also change your perception in life, faith and hope!

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.

What a testimony..an emotional book on persecution

This was a riveting testimony on a families journey of faith. certainly not all roses but all worth it. May the Lord richly bless Brother Yun and his family. I found myself searching for events where he will be sharing his testimony near me. we need such reminders of the walk of faith and the often high price some pay to follow Jesus. May you be rewarded richly for your labour of love

Remarkable Witness For Jesus

We can learn so much from Brother Yun as we pursue a comfortable Christian lifestyle. Persecution equals power according to this amazing man of God and he is right. No wonder we see such little evidence of the early church in Acts when we look at our Christian witness today. Thank you Brother Yun for opening my eyes. Thank you Jesus for your servant.

Just get it!

If you are scrolling down the reviews its because the holy spirit has sent you to this book/audible version of jt - obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit and get this book! It will change your life. I also would recommend Reinhard Bonnkes audible “Living a Life of Fire” its also a life changing book!!!

May God richly bless you! And may you live to spread the Gospel all the days of your life with zero compromise. This life costs, but none the less this is my hope for all the saints, to live ruthlessly for Christ.

Incredible story and all glory given to God.

This book has inspired me to read my Bible more, trust Jesus through hardships, sacrifice what I want in life for what Jesus wants me to do, to love God more passionately, and to see his hand in everything. It's the best book I've read in years.
