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.

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.

Sometimes it takes someone who has lived through real persecution to shake Christians out of their stained-glass stupor. Brother Yun, who has spent time in Chinese prisons, does just that in this collection of messages that span the decade since he left that Communist nation. Having brought together these messages at the insistence of fellow believers, Yun divides them into three sections for the purposes of the book. In the first section, he speaks of freedom in Christ and the spiritual life of the believer. In part two, he talks of equipping believers. He addresses obstacles that believers encounter in the third and final part. Yun alternates between a prophetic, no-holds-barred call to action and true belief in what he clearly sees as a slumbering Western church and the persuasive, pleading voice of a pastor to the individual Christian who needs to repent of those things that have caused him to stumble in his walk with Christ. In either case, Yun expresses a clear love of Christ and of his church which includes a desire to see the church become as bold as it was in its infancy. This is certainly not a book for the thin-skinned Christian. It is, however, one that will make a thinking Christian stop and examine her life. Don't try to plow through it in one setting. Rather, tackle it as a devotional tool, reading the message and examining the Scripture references and meditating on its application to your own life.

For those who desire a life of service to God, for those who feel a tugging on your heart to leave your comfort zone and enter a life of uncetainties and danger, for those who know this is your calling, this is why you are here... then this is a book for you. Brother Yun shows us the reality of being a missionary, including the misery and torture that accompanies following Jesus Christ. I have often questioned Gods timing, and this book reminded me that it will happen, but only when God has made me into whom I need to be to completely serve Him!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Why is such a believer persecuted?
Guest More than 1 year ago
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!
