The companion to the best-selling The Heavenly Man, Living Water shares the vision of one of China's most dedicated, courageous, and intensely persecuted house church leaders. Brother Yun's dramatic life story and teachings offer a message that inspires and challenges Christians to live out a passionate commitment to serve Jesus Christ.
- simple straightforward medicine for the western church
First, you need to have read Heavenly Man before this. That will give Bro Yun the credibility with you to say this frank word.
This book is not very well written, but the exhortation to the western church is the medicine we need. After listening to this book, I bought the Kindle format so I can highlight what Yun says, and remember it and share specifics.
The first 5 chapters, I thought, were not much, and the reader during these chapters tries to overdo the emotion. (Maybe it was that I was in the wrong frame of mind for these.) From chapter 6 onward, the book gets better and better, practical, honest, and does not pull punches. The last section, Part 3 on being a soldier, was the best.
Brother Yun’s simplicity in following the Lord and speaking the truth reminds me of the early days of Witness Lee’s ministry in the U.S. Brother Yun has the same burden for the functioning and oneness of all the members of the body of Christ without falling into any kind of esoteric teaching.
Interest level: 4. Probably not as high as Heavenly Man, because it doesn't have as much story, but still very interesting.
Spiritual content: 5. Full commitment to Christ, and encouraging me toward full commitment to Jesus Christ.
Content: More teaching than Heavenly Man, but still quite a bit of story, and encouraging towards life change for God's kingdom.
Narration: 5. Easy to understand and fits the theme of the book well.
- an wake up call
...or maybe a slap to the face of the Western church. Amen. I think we must wake up, listen and react to Brother Yun's words with action and resolve. Fantastic!
