"My name is Zhang Rongliang, and I am an unashamed follower of Jesus Christ.…It is considered quite dangerous to reveal the contents of this book, but these are stories that need to be told for God’s glory and for the encouragement of the church.” So begins this extraordinary first-person account by the prominent leader of one of the largest underground churches in China. A former Communist Party member, Zhang took a stand for Christ and was targeted for prison, work camps, and torture, all the while helping to build a network of millions of faithful believers. Spanning the time of Mao’s regime to today, Zhang testifies of God’s supernatural movements, of the sacrifice of countless Christians who loved and served Christ—regardless of the cost—and of the exciting new vision among believers in China to reach not only the Chinese but the entire world with the gospel.

How to Heal the Sick, Cast Out Demons, Raise the Dead--and More! The Bible says that if you belong to Jesus, you have the power to: · heal the sick · cast out demons · bring deliverance to those trapped in spiritual darkness · prophesy in his name · call forth creative miracles · receive supernatural words of wisdom and knowledge · even raise the dead So why do so many Christians live powerless lives? Why do they operate with so little faith? Having gone through his own journey from doubt to belief, Chicagoland pastor Robby Dawkins now ministers and speaks internationally, and where he goes, miracles happen. In these pages he shares incredible stories of God using ordinary people to do the impossible. And he shows that, when you begin to have faith in the power of God, take him at his Word, and understand his love for you, you will see his power released in healings, financial blessings, and miracles of all kinds.

The Chinese House Church is one of the most misunderstood and controversial subjects in Christian world missions today. Despite there being a plethora of books on the subject, much confusion abounds. The Chinese government's deliberate spreading of misinformation on the underground House Church and ignorance in the West has contributed to this problem. Based on extensive interviews and firsthand accounts, this book is a unique attempt to end the confusion. Rather than focusing on the well-documented past, the focus is on what God is doing in China and through Chinese Christians today. The House Church's unique characteristics-both good and bad-will be addressed, as well as how those characteristics have been instrumental in the church's astonishing growth over the past few decades.

The Chinese house church is one of the most misunderstood and controversial subjects in Christian world missions today. Questions about it abound, such as… How did it start? How does it work? How is it led? Why does it continue to experience revival? Is it necessary, now that China has extended religious freedoms? Much of the confusion is caused by the Chinese government, which deceives journalists and foreign missionaries with promises of religious freedom that are never kept. The truth is, the house churches of China are growing at a phenomenal rate. Never in the history of the world have so many people in such a short time left one belief system for another without a hostile revolution. Lives in China are being transformed daily by the gospel of Jesus Christ and the display of His miraculous power. The Underground Church demystifies the Chinese house church movement, with real-life examples and personal testimonies from Chinese Christians. The movement’s unique characteristics—both good and bad—are addressed, as well as how they have led to the church’s astonishing growth. Read and be amazed at what God is doing in China!

The jihadist group ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has been wreaking havoc in northern Iraq and Syria. But its reign of terror is not confined to the Middle East. Its 2014 beheadings of American journalist James Foley and Israeli-American journalist Steven Sotloff have shocked the world and instilled fear in the hearts of many Westerners. ISIS is the wealthiest, most technologically advanced, and most powerful terrorist organization in history. Its members are extremely diverse, having been recruited from countries all over the globe, including Canada, Britain, and the U.S. Now that ISIS has the world’s attention, what’s next? Governments around the world have spent billions of dollars employing military strategies, and they are still convinced that ISIS is mainly a political problem that requires a political solution. But what if the answer isn’t political or military? What if the real solution is spiritual in nature? Missionaries from the underground church of China are launching a spiritual offensive. They are not armed with a sentence of death but with a message of life, and ISIS jihadists are in their crosshairs. In ISIS, the Heart of Terror, you will learn about the missionary vision “Back to Jerusalem” and the underground church’s unique method of responding to ISIS by evangelizing Muslim militants. Discover how Chinese missionaries are fulfilling the Great Commission by sharing the gospel with some of the most unreachable people groups in the world, and find out how Christians everywhere can take part in a powerful evangelization of the Middle East.

Coming Out, Then Coming Home Christopher Yuan, the son of Chinese immigrants, discovered at an early age that he was different. He was attracted to other boys. As he grew into adulthood, his mother, Angela, hoped to control the situation. Instead, she found that her son and her life were spiraling out of control—and her own personal demons were determined to defeat her. Years of heartbreak, confusion, and prayer followed before the Yuans found a place of complete surrender, which is God's desire for all families. Their amazing story, told from the perspectives of both mother and son, offers hope for anyone affected by homosexuality. God calls all who are lost to come home to him. Casting a compelling vision for holy sexuality, Out of a Far Country speaks to prodigals, parents of prodigals, and those wanting to minister to the gay community. “But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” - Luke 15:20 Includes a discussion guide for personal reflection and group use.

The Unforgettable Memoirs: My Life, Shanghai Local Church, and Watchman NeeLily M. Hsu, M.D.It is a story of serious introspection and exploration of a precious spiritual heritage. The events surrounding the Local Church Movement and its leader Watchman Nee are an important chapter in the Chinese church's 20th century history. Not all its pages have been transparent. A dense fog within the local church itself hinders historical transparency. There is more to see and learn.In her youth, author Lily Hsu was baptized at the Shanghai Local Church (i.e. Shanghai Christian Assembly, SCA) and went through its raging storms of conflict and controversy. She pursued God, and effective worship. Stunned by church failings, she tumbled away and withdrew from God and the church. Finally, by the amazing grace of God, she committed herself to God once again. With great courage, personal experience and an assiduous exploration of SCA's history, she lifts the fog on major historical facts and directs our sight to the importance of SCA as a spiritual movement. Her purpose is not to condemn but to offer prompt and positive inspiration--lessons for the Christians and churches of today.This is a book of invaluable personal and spiritual recollections. Author Dr. Hsu strives to write words without the opaque fog of pride and historical distortions.
