Publisher's Description

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.

    The Heavenly Man is a wonderful book that opened my eyes to the suffering of Christians in China, understanding true sacrifice for the gospel, and realizing that as part of the western church I have much to learn about sacrifice and following the Lord. It was a book I enjoyed reading, and sometimes had to put down to really think through what Brother Yun was saying. He preaches the Gospel by his words, actions, and the choices he makes in his life. This book has greatly changed my heart.

    Some quotes I liked:

    "You can never really know the scriptures until you are willing to be changed by them."

    "I had placed myself in the hands of the Lord of justice. I was no linger living by my own strength, but by the grace of God."

    "We're not called to live by human reason. All that matters is obedience to God's Word and his leading in our lives."

    "You need to realize that that any love I have in my heart for Jesus is only because of his love for me."

    This is a book you must read. I am having all my kids read this book, my husband, and anyone I can talk into reading it. It is powerful. Not just because of what Yun has done and suffered for the Gospel, but on how he is open to God changing his heart. I want to be open to that kind of change. I highly recommend this book.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    This review was written for The Heavenly Man.
    The Heavenly Man is not an easy read. Its not the kind of book that youll dive into with a cup of coffee and plunge through in a day. However, it is the kind of book that will make you stop and thank God for the freedoms Hes allowed on those of us in the United States. It is the kind of story that reminds us how blessed, how privileged we are to be able to worship freely and without real persecution. Most importantly, it is the kind of story that causes us to lift prayers for our brothers and sisters around the world who suffer for the sake of preaching the gospel to the lost.

    Yun tells his very painful story of being arrested, tortured and years of unspeakable horrors for the sake of the sharing the gospel. His relentless pursuit to fulfill his calling is inspirational and touching. Deling, his wife, also gives her account of the events. I loved the way they write together because the reality is, his struggles were shared with his loved ones as they prayed for his release from prison. Far from Bonnie and Clyde, this couple is considered to be criminals in their country. Their only criminal behavior was their inability to surrender Jesus for the lies their country propagated.

    The Heavenly Man is an intense read but highly recommended.

    The Heavenly Man is incredible. This is the story of a man who experienced unbelievable persecution, torture, and horrible opposition. Brother Yun had ever y reason to give up. And yet, he maintained an amazing faith in God and commitment to the cause of spreading the gospel. It is impossible to read Brother Yuns story and not be moved.

    I was especially touched when I read how badly Brother Yun wanted a Bible and how few people in the country owned one. And yet, we in America take the Bible for granted. This book is heartbreaking and very humbling. It really caused me to consider my own commitment to Christ. It is a very emotional book to read. It would make a great read for anyone who would like a glimpse of what God can do through a totally surrendered life. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    This book changed my perspective on many things about my life. To realize how easy I have it in America, even when things are bad, I haven't had to go through much at all compared to this brother. We are blessed on one aspect in that we don't have the persecution he had, but maybe we would be closer to the Father if we had some. God puts each of us where we are, so I'm not asking for persecution, but through this book will try to be bolder and learn to know God in a closer, more real way and should persecution come, from his example, be a bolder Christian!
