About the Book

James H Taylor III says in the Preface, "No Chinese leader in the twentieth century has more clearly articulated the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, or more poignantly experienced what the Apostle Paul described as "the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings". Released after twenty-three years of imprisonment, he told how the words of the prophet Micah had sustained him: 'But as for me, I keep watch for the Lord, I wait in hope for God my Saviour; my God will hear me.'"
This autobiographical material, covering the first 50 years of Wong Ming-Dao's life was collected from various sources, edited and translated into English by Arthur Reynolds, a CIM missionary in China from 1933 to 1951.
