My Father, The Evangelistby Paul Myung-Ha Chung
A destitute tenant farmer, in Pyung Yang, Korea, gives away his twelve year old son to the nationalist patriot, Doh Sahn, in 1908. Following the ardent Patriot, thrusts the teenager into the midst of an international struggle raging in the Korean Peninsula. Japan proceeds to annex Korea into the Japanese Empire. The Patriot fights to thwart the annexation. As the Japanese police close in, the Patriot and the teenager escape to Tsingtao and Vladivostok; the two finally reach New York in 1911, as Korea is no more. The teenager struggles alone to survive in America, and enters Asbury College in Kentucky. Rev. Robert Nahm-Soo Chung in 1926 returns to his homeland. His Evangelistic Crusade Team carries a huge tent of six thousand capacity, on a van-truck provided by American campgrounds and churches. The Team travels even to the remote areas of the Peninsula. He preaches to the throngs suffering under the Japanese, during their darkest hours. Hundreds of thousands of people come to Jesus. He suffers torture in the Japanese prison, for preaching the gospel, and for his close tie with the Patriot. You will walk through his tears and triumphs to preach the gospel.
Paul M. Chung, PH.D, is a retired engineering Professor and Dean Emeritus of an engineering college.

Dr. Chung has written a fascinating story of a remarkable man, his father, Robert Chung, and his call to serve God by preaching the Gospel to his people in Korea. He made a difficult journey to the United States, accompanying the nationalist patriot, Chahng-Ho Ahn. Young Doh, as Robert was known then, worked very hard to gain his education, and graduated from Asbury College in Wilmore, KY. Although there were many challenges and dangers along his chosen path, his faith never wavered. World history plays a prominent role in Robert's struggles to preach in Korea, through the Japanese domination of the Korean peninsula and on through the Korean War. Robert preached not only in Korea, where he held huge tent revivals '10,000 and more people', but also in the United States, where he eventaully lived out his remaining days with his wife. Dr. Chung's prose and the pictures included in the book tell a compelling story of a remarkable life.
