At a time when India was struggling for political independence, and an identity apart from the Western world, Bakht Singh found faith in Jesus. This biography by T.E. Koshy shares Singh's life story and shows how his influence helped change the perception of Christianity as a Western religion, to one that is relevant to the people of India. You will be inspired as you read what God can do with someone who is willing to trust him, no matter the cost.
This is the story of Bakht Singh, a man who God used, despite his human frailties and limitations, to do extraordinary things. During the time of India's struggle for political independence, Singh's ministry grew from obscure evangelist and revivalist to world-renowned church planter and speaker. This amazing account of Singh's life journey--from a Sikh to an atheist to a miraculous conversion to Christ--is filled with examples of a life lived totally comitted to God. Along the way, he depended solely on God for his every need, both personal and corporate. Even in the simplest matters he did nothing without first seeking to know the will of God. The result is a story full of God's miraculous provisions and timing for this man of faith and prayer. This authorized biography, written by Dr. T. E. Koshy, narrates how God led Bakht Sing to establish indigenous local churches patterned after New Testament principles, which helped dispel the misconception that Christianity is a Western religion and not relevant to the people of India. Dr. Koshy's intimate account of the vision and mission of this incredible man includes his extensive research and interviews with Singh, his siblings, friends and fellow associates to give an account of this man of God previously unknown to many. You will be inspired as you read what God can do with someone who is willing to trust him, no matter the cost.
