Heavenly Man: by by Paul Hattaway
Author: Publisher: Monarch Books
|The Remarkable True Story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun |
The Heavenly Man is the intensely dramatic story of how God took a young, half-starved boy from a poor village in Henan Province and used him mightily to preach the Gospel despite horrific opposition. Brother Yun is one of China's house church leaders, a man who despite his relative youth has suffered prolonged torture and imprisonment for his faith. He has been arrested more than 30 times for his Christian testimony, and has endured four lengthy prison sentences. His account challenges any complacency about the situation in China, where brutal religious persecution is still a daily reality for millions. Instead of focusing on the many miracles and experiences of suffering, however, Yun prefers to emphasize the character and beauty of Jesus. This astonishing book will form a watershed in your spiritual life.
Dr. Mark Stibbe, author of Thinking Clearly about Revival, says, "The Heavenly Man is an inspirational and heroic story of a radical Christian in the house churches of China. This book is like reading a modern-day version of the Book of Acts. Prepare to be deeply encouraged as well as rudely awakened. An absolute must for the sleeping churches of the West."
Peter Xu Yongze, one of the most respected leaders of China's Church for more than 30 years, says, "Through nearly thirty years of testing, Brother Yun has seen the grace of the Lord overflowing as a blessing to many. He is one of God's chosen leaders to this generation, a great fighter and faithful worker. Many signs, wonders and miracles have followed his ministry, attesting that he is an apostle of the faith. I testify that every story in this book is true. I have personally witnessed many of the events described in these pages, and recommend it as a true testimony of the great things God has done in China's church."
Dr. Rob Frost, evangelist and broadcaster, says, "The story of Brother Yun's persecution and imprisonment is heart-rending. It's a profound challenge to each of us to take up the cross and follow Jesus. I found it deeply moving."
One pastor from Sweden who obtained an early copy of the book wrote to say, "The Lord has used this book to change my life and ministry. I read every word with tears in my eyes." One Christian brother in Pennsylvania sent an email in which he said, "What a tremendous encouragement! The book was startling and life-changing. I'd like to order a case of them, if possible." Another wrote, "I started reading it just before bedtime but found I could not put it down until I finished at 5 a.m. It challenged me deeply and moved me to my knees in praise and adoration of our Lord Jesus. Glory to God!"
