    Heavenly Man changed my spiritual walk with God!

    Why do the Christians in China suffer so much and we as Chritians in the U.S. live a life of blessing? Why are the churches in the U.S. decreasing in membership and China's home churches are alive and well?

    These questions came to my mind in reading Pastor Yun's experiences in his quest for a Bible, in his preaching the word, and his suffering in prison all for the name of Jesus. Are the miracles he describes real?

    I could not put the book down and have passed it along to members of my church and recommended it to numerous friends.

    Thank you for the opportunity to share my opinion of this book.

    Are you ready to grow?

    A lot of the time when I read inspirational books I am unsure if the author is truly sincere, or if they are just writing what sells. With this book I had no doubts! Brother Yun is a true follower of Jesus. Because of his faith he has faced persecution, and yet he has stayed strong. Who better to tell us how to grow? Shares pieces of brother Yun's life and the trials he has faced serving as a pastor in China. I love how he believes in becoming a ¿new wineskin¿, turning from traditional religious rituals, and truly following Jesus. Though brother Yun and I come from very different places and very different circumstances, we have a lot in common. Some of this book felt as if I had written it, I shared so many of brother Yun's views. One of my two current favorite books. This book can change your life, if you will only let it.

    Get Ready to Get out of your rut

    I have absolutely loved this book. I know this is a completely overused statement, but I really felt like this book was written just for me, to me. I could feel the Lord speaking through the author, and snapping me out of my complacency. I can't wait to go back and read the first book. This book put a mirror to my face and showed me how much I take for granted my faith and my Savior.

    Moving Mountains Through Faith and Sacrifice

    Brother Yun's courageous story challenges readers to become far bolder in their witness for Christ. He is someone who really speaks from the depths of his heart and rich personal experience, giving us moving examples that truly ignite faith and a desire to do far more to spread the Good News to those living in darkness. This work is a true inspiration!

    A reviewer

    He¿s been beaten, imprisoned, and almost starved to death for sake of the gospel. That is reason enough to want to read what this persecuted, yet reportedly joy-filled Chinese preacher has to say. Charged with Brother Yun¿s passion for taking the good news to the ends of the earth, Living Water transports you to a modern day Acts where once again, we see the courage to live and die for Christ reverse the thwarted attempts to annihilate Christianity. This book is about being transformed into a vessel of refreshment,a deep reservoir of living water that is the Holy Spirit. Here you will find the encouragement and the challenge to exchange sleepy-time religion for a faith on fire. You will embark on a 3-part spiritual journey destined to make you so dangerous the enemy will want a piece of you, real bad. Along the way, Brother Yun will equip you with true stories, pearls of wisdom, and God¿s word ¿ everything you¿ll need to make you to an unstoppable soldier for Christ. Living Water is an inspiring autobiography, a powerful evangelistic tool, and daily devotional all in one volume. The breath of the Holy Spirit is felt on every page beckoning to surrender, obey and sacrifice. Like the living water that Jesus promises to those who believe in Him, this book will refresh, revive and reenergize you. And you will never be the same again.

    Highly recommended

    This book is a real call to action for the churches in the west. I used it teaching an adult Sunday school class, the message is to follow Jesus' call to spread the Good News, get out of the club atmosphere so many churches have. New members are not going to just walk in the door, we have to go out to them.

    Come thirsty!

    If you are happy to live a life of complacency, don't read this book. But if you feel your spiritual life has been lacking, if you've lost your first love, if you want to drink deep from the source of Living Water, I highly recommend it. In the first section, Brother Yun will bring you to your knees. He takes you through a deep, soul-searching journey, full of examples from scripture and his own life. In the second section, he raises you up. Each chapter takes you down another tributary in the streams of Living Water, reminding you of what a true Christian should be. And in the third section, he will send you forth. Through many examples from his own life and the ministries of others in China, he will challenge you to go out and share your faith. The book is easy to read and understand, well-written and full of amazing stories that will inspire you. Thank you, Brother Yun, and God bless you!
