4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By L. Chen on Nov. 6 2005
Format: Paperback
I was intrigued by the 5-star reviews given this book and the comment that it was the like the book of Acts continued. It truly is. There are astounding callings, and miracles mentioned in this book, miraculous healings and providence, escapes from prison, warnings, visions, protection, fastings, endurance, and transformational conversions in and out of prison. If you are a believer, your faith will be strengthened by reading this book. If you are an unbeliever, you will wonder at how those things could happen or scoff at the veracity of it. However, the events are well-known in China and collaborated by many eye witnesses still living.
The book ends with the Back to Jerusalem vision that Chinese house churches see as a mission to follow the three historical routes of the silk road back to Jerusalem, evangelizing the Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist nations along the way. We wait and pray to see the next fulfillment of God's plan in His heavenly men, women, and children.

This is an excellent book.It shows the toughness & resilience of the Chinese Saints and how God dsplays His awesome power and presence to show that he is still the same God as in the Old Testament,in the book of Acts and now. I believe the Western churches need to somehow connect with the brethren in the Chinese home churches to renew our fire and rebuild our spiritual alters. This book shows one man's determination to advance in God and stay faithful, despite severe persecution and torture and it shows the awesome power of God who still responds to His people in dreams and visions and supernatural manifestations of the Holy Spirit, to demonstrate that He is always faithful and He is a real God who responds to the needs of His people.This is like the book of Acts in action....This book has allowed me to see that no matter what suffering I have gone through as a follower of Christ, there are believers like Brother Yun and other Chinese believers who like the Apostles of old and Jesus himself who are/and were severely persecuted and even died for their faith. It is a wake up call that we need to stop being complacent & do what we can to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ as we are in a real warfare and our enemy Satan is not playing at all.He really comes to steal and to kill and destroy, but God is a mightier warrior and He has not lost any battles yet.... The book encouraged me to stay strong in God and endure hardship as a soldier of Jesus Christ according to the words of The Bible no matter what happens.

Format: Paperback
The 'Heavenly Man' gets his name from a time when he was being publicly arrested by the Chinese state police for preaching (an offence for which you can still die in China), and he refused to give his name and address to avoid incriminating others. Under pressure, he shouted aloud as a warning for the village to hear, "I am a Heavenly Man". This defiance and denial of the state and assertion of his individual rights only enraged the enforcers even more, but certainly saved a few others from capture that night. The Heavenly Man's true name is Liu Zhenying, and the brothers call him Brother Yun. He was born in a mud hut house in 1958 in Nanyang County, the southern part of Henan Province, China. His peasant farmer village is very small, only 600 souls, but Henan Province has 100 million, and has been widely influenced by his preaching and leadership in the persecuted house church movement. Brother Yun is currently in exile in Europe with his family.
This account of the way things are for the oppressed in modern China is not for the faint-hearted. It is a harrowing but inspired account of his life from his conversion at the age of sixteen (with the rest of his family), up to 2002. Almost every type of miracle is recorded here. Of course, whether the reader believes any or all of them will depend on many things, but most basically it will depend on whether your worldview contains any supernatural aspect. If you go so far as to believe that there is a God and that he can intervene by his Will direct, as opposed to just working through people, then you may be inclined to accept all that he says. He is a veteran of the Chinese state prison system. Under the almost incessant vicious treatment of the communists he was attacked bodily and mentally in torture and public humiliation.

Format: Paperback
I wish I could give this book six or seven stars. There
are a few truly rare books out there that can genuinely
change your life for the better: this is definitely one
of those books.
You will be amazed to read the fascinating and heartrending
testimony of bro.Yun, a leader in the Chinese underground
church, and how his "faith of abandonment to GOD" leads
him into astounding testings and overcoming power to
testify of the faithfulness and supernatural power of
Christ in daily life: a life that seeks nothing but the
glory of God and the salvation of others as a true servant
in the Kingdom of Christ and His Church.
Just to read the triumphs and tragedies of chapters 11 and
12 alone is more than worth the price of this book. It's a
modern-day classic that will, perhaps, challenge your faith
and your life as no other book you may ever read.
I know now beyond any shadow of doubt that most Christians
in the Western and developed world are virtually spiritual
pygmies compared to our brethren suffering under persecution
and rising to the task of giving testimony to The Gospel with
their very lives and their all for Christ, and Christ alone.
~ This is what genuine, - from the heart CHRISTianity is
all about. The book is a rare treasure. don't miss it, OR
the Message.
