    WARNING: DON'T READ THIS UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO BE CHANGED FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

    Except for the second book like this, "Living Water", this is easily the best and most life-changing book I have ever read (not counting the Bible). It caused me to go before the Lord and have Him really, REALLY search my heart. The Lord caused me to find this book, BRAND NEW, on the shelf at a Salvation Army. Not looking like something I would read, I bought it for my husband - just because there was a book sale. I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I have loaned it out I don't know how many times. I am planning to buy it on audio in the near future. It caused me to have a revelation of what it means to be REAL. Now God is making me real. I used to wonder why there was such a big difference in the way the followers of Jesus lived in the New Testament as compared to the way we are today. After reading this book, I understand. There are Christians, and then there are REAL followers of Christ. Now I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling. Now I will allow Christ to glorify Himself through my life, whatever the cost. All I can say is, if you are a Christian and you don't know what I'm talking about here, then you need to read to this book. But only if you desire to be a REAL seeker of Truth. Because this book, if prayed about before, during, and after reading, WILL change the way you look at yourself and the world around you. This book WILL stir you to get on your knees before God and allow the Holy Spirit to search and purge you of everything that hinders your relationship with God. This book will cause you to see that if you are not leading the lost to Jesus, you are falling short. And nobody has to fall short. Jesus has given us power to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). He said that we have freely received, and that freely we should give (Matthew 10:8). So we know that we have been both commissioned and equipped with the authority and power to love others and lead them to Jesus. If you have not yet had a true revelation of this fact, READ THIS BOOK. You will know the things written in it are true because your spirit bears witness. It's not like you read this book and go, "Ok, that sounds right". You read this book and you go, "Oh. Oh!" If you have the Spirit of the living God in you, you are going to too FEEL the words as you read them. I could go on and on about this book. But just get it and read it and see for yourself. And get Living Water, too! It's the second part to this book. You won't regret it!

    Building your Faith

    This was the best book I have ever read. I am glad I got to read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to read a violent, harsh, faith-building book.

    Highly recommended!

    Paints a vivid picture of what the persecuted church in China is really like. Makes me realize how fortunate I am to live in a country where religious freedom exists. I now understand what it means to live for Christ.

    Changed my life

    Truly life changing. You will see God through a completely fresh set of eyes. We in the western, democracised world have it so easy that we're completely missing what God can do. Most importantly, God wants all of our heart, soul, and mind and Brother Yun exemplifies the peace that comes when one gives it all away.

    Absolutely amazing book! It's like reading stories from the New

    Absolutely amazing book! It's like reading stories from the New Testament. It just goes to show us that there's so much more God wants to do in and through us. We've settled in our busy lives and let too many "things" take our time and attention away from God and His will. I was very humbled by Brother Yun's powerful, heartfelt testimony. The prison escape story was absolutely amazing. I even went on Wikipedia to see what they said about it. They stated, "It is reported that the official investigation by the Chinese Government concluded that 'Yun received no human help in his escape.'" Love that! God is awesome! I only hope I could be as brave as Yun to keep my faith in the face of such intense persecution. Truly inspiring!

    This book captured me. It took me into this incredible journey of Brother Yun and his family. Every page that I read, left me thirsty for more of this incredible story. I literally could not put the book down until I finished the book.
