Publisher's Description

For the first five decades of his life, Seung-Whan (Steven) Kim was a businessman who pursued financial prosperity, while largely ignoring both his family and his commitment to God. But after moving to China and rededicating his life to Christ, this South Korean-turned-American citizen felt called by God to help North Korean refugees escape from Chinese enslavement. In 2003, he was arrested while leading a prayer meeting of nine North Koreans in his apartment. Kim would spend the next four years in a Chinese labor camp. Despite great hardship and suffering, he immersed himself in the Scriptures and led fellow inmates to Christ; including both his prison guard and a hardened murderer. Since his release, Kim has been a powerful advocate for North Korean refugees in China, raising awareness about their plight and fighting for their human rights. Kim's story is thrilling, heart-breaking, and victorious. His life reminds us that God can use anyone in any circumstance to achieve great things for His kingdom! You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. (Genesis 50:20)

Author Bio

Carl Herzig, PhD, has authored and/or edited numerous works of fiction and non-fiction, is a fellow of the National Writing Project and a reviewer for several literary and creative journals, and has directed two university curriculum and assessment programs. He leads student service-learning trips to India and has served as an Iowa Humanities Scholar and evaluator for the Hearst Foundation U.S. Senate Youth Program, the Iowa Humanities Board, and the Illinois Council for the Humanities. He is currently professor of English at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, where he teaches courses in sacred poetry, contemporary fiction, and creative and expository writing.

He now runs 318 Partners, a U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to rescuing trafficked women in China. It's named after Article 318 of the Chinese criminal code, the law under which Kim was arrested in September 2003 for trying to help nine North Korean refugees escape to South Korea through Vietnam.

    In 1975, a twenty-seven-year-old Korean man stepped into New York and an adventure no one in their right mind would ever want. Kim Seung-Whan (who later adopted the Americanized Steven Kim) had been an eager, hard-working young man bent on becoming rich, a goal which he achieved. He married the perfect girl (Helen) who not only supported him in his dreams but worked beside him. He attended and supported his church but remained unmoved by any of the messages.

    His prosperous ventures eventually led him into China, and here his life began to change. He began going to a Chinese-Korean church there when his business failed. And then he found a Korean church, which is illegal in China, and as his business and his faith began to grow he began to help a few North Korean refugees in need find jobs--again illegal. When the Chinese government found out, he was thrown into prison.

    Find out how this experience strengthened rather than demolished him as well as benefited others around him in his four years of deprivation, slave labor, and blessings.

    This review was written for Fearless Passage.
    This book is a very real accounting of Steven Kim's persecution in China. Once you've read it though, you cannot plead ignorance to the suffering of many in North Korea and China. An excellent read all the way around. The Fearless Passage of Steven Kim is an example of what living the gospel looks like when one man lays down his life for another.

    I appreciated this book in that it really opened my eyes to injustices in Chinese human rights. Stephen Kim's personal story made it a much more real issue that as believers we need to be concerned about.
