John Sung was the greatest evangelist China has ever known. Although possessing brilliant academic qualifications, he nevertheless at the call of God turned wholly to the work of preaching the gospel. His apostolic ministry throughout south-east Asia resulted in thousands of converts and in refreshing the life of the Chinese Church. For the space of a decade he "broke open to Christ" the hearts of his countrymen as no one has ever been able to do before or since. China has adorned the pages of Christian history with many immortal tales, but the extraordinary and moving story of John Sung must rank among the greatest of them all. There is still a penetrating appeal to all Christians in his message, his way, his amazing success, and in his use of his allotted span of time. No one who wishes to preserve a comfortable complacency should read this book.
