A absolute must read book! A book about a man who has changed a nation. I had to put the book down to cry giving glory to God!

Format: Paperback
When I first lived in Hong Kong, in 1984, one of the adventures missionary types commonly went on was to smuggle Bibles into China. I had two goes at it, both times (as I recall) meeting at the Revival Church to pick up the Bible, and to get instructions. (I was too insignificant to need to listen to the instructions very carefully; someone else was in charge.) I kept my eyes pealed, but as often as I heard the legendary name "Dennis Balcolme" in those circles, I don't recall ever laying eyes on the man himself, or knowing what he looked like -- still less where he came from.

So I was pleased a few months ago, when a Presbyterian pastor in the Seattle area told me he had known Dennis in his old Jesus Freak days (he didn't use that term, but that's how I read it), and would I like to read his book, in which the pastor also appeared? So this book came to me as one of those curious "Rest of the Story" narratives that filled in a gap of knowledge about a minor but impressive figure from my own past, whose ministry I had taken part in, and whom I can thank for memories of the White Swan hotel in Canton.

I enjoyed reading the story, in which God figures prominently, a nice arrangement for a missions autobiography, I think, but not always what you find. This is a classic part of the history of a subculture -- missions in East Asia -- that is full of intrinsic and accidental interest, eccentric characters, exotic background and divine interventions of a subtle and sometimes humorous kind, growing out of another subculture -- West Coast Jesus People. Dennis tells the story reasonably well, though the title seems vague and uninspired.

I only wish there were more stars I could add - this is a wonderful book...

I'd heard of this man on several occasions - he's seen in the doc "Finger of God", and mentioned in several other great histories of Christianity in China... But I never knew the whole story of who he was, and how he came to be in China...

He covers his early life in great detail, and it turns out to be not only a great, adventurous read, but a wonderful teaching experience without ever pretending to be one. In this age of plastic Christianity, the prosperity Gospel, mega churches, and self promoting "ministers of the Gospel", here's a man who actually had a call on his life, followed it, and has profoundly affected the world, though he is largely unknown here in the U.S...

There are so many lessons in the book on how to walk the walk of faith and live a fruitful Christian life - and yet so many fun and incredible stories as well - like refusing to carry bullets in his gun in Vietnam, because he considered himself a minister, and called to bless and not kill. He was so safe to be around that soldiers would seek him out to be next to him during shelling attacks because they knew he was under divine protection...

The book is full of many other marvelous stories of God's working in a man's life they're too numerous to even begin to list.

Just do yourself and your Christian life (or your not Christian life for that matter) a favor and get a copy of this book - you won't be able to put it down... And when you do put it down you'll find yourself thinking (or praying if that's what you do), on how you might be so fortunate as to have a life like his...

My father and I have been reading Balcombe's biography with much interest and can vouch for much of what is written as longtime friends! His personal accounts are quite touching and reassuring that God is truly in control of each step of His life (our lives) and somehow puts all the pieces of our lives together to be a true inspiration and spiritual blessing to others as Balcombe still is.

Having personally known the Balcombe family for the last five years now, I can attest to the power of God's wonderful love working through this family. This is the story of Dennis Balcombe's calling into China and the earliest years of his work. This work is not only informative into the history of one of China's greatest missionaries, it is also an inspiring work, one that proclaims God's relentless love and speaks to us to follow after the voice of God no matter what the obstacles might be. Dennis' journey will inspire you to follow the calling of God on your life no matter the risk.

This is a very well written book by someone who has lived in China along time and loves the people. A story of what God is doing among the people and their great hunger for Him. You absolutely must read this!!!!!

I have had an interest in missionaries to China for years and this satisfied that interest 100%. Very well written and is very thorough. It also clears up misconceptions the westerners have about Christians being persecuted in China, in the last chapter. If anyone should know, this author is the one.
