I've read this 2 or 3 times, and purchased additional copies and gave away.
It's good to consider when tempted to complain about whatever hardship you may be going through in life. Somebody out there in the world has had it tougher. I am inspired by Brother Yun's faithfulness to God under very harsh circumstances.
Revelation 2:10 (KJV)
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
I would like to recommend also the more detailed account in "The Heavenly Man" by Paul Hattaway.
Another book some may like to read: "Tortured For Christ" by Richard Wurmbrand.

This is an incredible, convicting story. If you've read The Heavenly Man, this is a short, extremely fast-paced version laid out in comic book style. Some of the imagery and details are a little harsh for younger audiences. I have a four year old and it will probably be quite awhile before we go through it together. If you're purchasing it for kids, make sure they're older and you read it together. There are a few stories that may need a little explaining.
