A must read for those who are interested in the recent history (1900-1970) of the Chinese church, particularly the often tense relationship between the house church movement and the official "Three-Self Church." Wang Ming-Dao (1900-1991) was a well-known and important evangelist and pastor of a house church in Beijing in the 1940s and 50s. He suffered under the Communist regime and was imprisoned for decades because of his faith in Christ and his non-conformist stand with the Three-Self Church. The author (same surname, but not related to Wang Ming-Dao) was a disciple of Wang. The author visited Wang secretly in 1990 and spent three weeks within him and his wife. He collected first-hand, primary information about Wang's life in prison and after his release.

Wang Ming-Dao wrote an autobiography about his first fifty years. This book is primarily about the forty years thereafter. In the first edition of this book (published in 1997), real names of the living characters were disguised in order to protect them from retribution of the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese government. In this revised edition (published in 2010), the author revealed the real names of the characters involved. It should also be noted that there is an English edition on the 1997 version of this book published in England. ( )
