This must be one of the best books I've read. ( )

I felt uncomfortable when reading this book firstly due to the title. Should anyone really name themselves "The Heavenly Man?" I found the many miracles almost unbelievable and would like to have seen other sources that supported his version of events. I'm just not sure I can accept that these things really happened and as another reviewer has pointed out, several of the stories mirror things that happened in scripture down to the last detail (Yun's escape from prison)

I wouldn't recommend this as it may confuse a non-believer or a not so discerning believer... ( )

I think the only way I can rightly describe it is as one reviewer did on the back of the book: it really is like reading a modern-day version of the book of Acts. Brother Yun tells freely about his experiences leading the persecuted church in China with humility, and reading this book has deeply challenged me in my own love for Jesus and passion for the unreached. He also applies Bible passages in unconventional ways. Overall, I love the heart behind this story, and it really is one that gives glory to God alone. ( )

The Heavenly Man by Brother Yun is . . . wow. If you're interested in the recent history of China and the growth of Christianity there since the '70s, this is the book for you. If you're interested in how Christianity can be revived, this is the book for you. If you want to read current history that mirrors the book of Acts, this is the book for you. If you're a sceptic of Christianity, please read this book; it is the strongest testimony and proof I can imagine for Christianity. ( )
