[Publisher]

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. His account challenges any complacency about the situation in China, where international economic investment ignores the brutal fact that religious  persecution is still a daily reality for millions. Instead of focusing on the many  miracles or 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.

The story of Brother Yun adds a very personal note to what Dr. Paul Jenkins says in CBN News:

“Then there is China. There are about 80 million Christians in China, according to former Time Magazine Correspondent David Aikman, who predicts China will be a Christianized nation in 20 to 30 years. He does not predict a Christian majority, but a China that is 25 to 30 percent Christian. Enough, he says, to change society and government. “If you have a Christianized China, the leadership of China would reflect a Christian worldview to some degree,” Aikman said. “A China that’s Christianized would not be a threat to the United States.”

And Aikman says the Chinese church leaders have a burden to take the gospel the rest of the way across the globe, to the Muslims. “It’s part of a sense that they call ‘back to Jerusalem,” Aikman said. “They believe that just as the gospel originally came out of Jerusalem and went to the West and to North America and Europe and came to China, now the Chinese need to bring it back to Jerusalem, not in the sense of evangelizing the Jewish, but in the sense of completing the circle so that the gospel message is available to everybody in the world.”

Imagine Chinese reaching the Muslims, Koreans evangelizing Indians, Africans taking the gospel back to a largely godless Europe. African Matthew Ashimolowo is the pastor of the fastest growing church in England. “God is sending people who used to receive missionaries to now be missionaries around the world,” Ashimolowo said. Kenyan Bishop Gilbert Dya has one of the largest churches in London. “I am in this country, believing that God sent me here in Great Britain to make a voice on His behalf to let them know that they need to repent and come back to God,” he said.
