Called to Complete the Great Commission

Description

Napoleon once said: "When China is moved it will change the face of the globe." Today these words are becoming a reality through the powerful spiritual vision of the Chinese church to send 100,000 missionaries across China's borders to complete the Great Commission, even in this generation! Here Brother Yun, Peter Yongze ad Enoch Wang, three Chinese church leaders who between them have spent more than 40 years in prison for their faith, explain the history and present-day reality of the Back to Jerusalem movement. Christians everywhere, who are all called to fulfill the Great Commission, will be thrilled by this testimony and inspired to live bolder lives as disciples of Jesus Christ today.

Reviews

"This is a blockbuster of a book that could affect world mission more than anything that has been written since Roland Allen" [Misisonary Methods, St Paul's or Ours?] - Howard Brant, SIM "So far, this is the only book in English which seriously addresses this important movement. ... There is much useful and inspiring information about BTJ in this book." - Tony Lambert [Global Chinese Ministries Newsletter, Dec 03/Jan 04] "Over 50 years ago God gave a vision for evangelism 'Back to Jerusalem' to a dedicated band of Chinese Christians. Many were imprisoned and some died as martyrs, unable to reachj their goal. But now the torch has been handed on to a new generation. This book graphically explains the background to the movement. May it be used to stir up prayer that the vision will become a reality. Chinese Christians face formidable barriers - political, linguistic and cultural- before they can make an impact on the Muslim world. Yet if God is with them, who can be against them?" - Tony Lambert, author of China's Christian Millions "March 2000 may prove to be a pivotal month in the worldwide penetration of the gospel. During that month 39 missionaries departed from China to a neighbouring buddhist country. Chinese church leaders believe this is only the beginning. The gospel came to them from the west - having spread from Jerusalem. Now there is a burning passion to see the gospel's further spread west and south through the great unreached areas of the world full circle back to Jerusalem. It's the dynamic vision of a dynamic church and could be the greatest missionary force in our world in the coming decade. It is therefore essential for anyone involved in the world of missions to read this book." Peter Maiden, Associate International Director of Operation Mobilisation "A century ago China was emerging from the trauma of the Boxer Rebellion which resulted in the martyrdom of many Chinese Christians and foreign missionaries. There were then only a little over a million who claimed to be Christian. For the ensuing 50 years China was THE great mission field of the world. Who could ever have believed that after a further 50 years, Communism and terrible persecution, the church in China could grow so mightily that China might become one of the foremost missionary-sending countries in the 21st century? This remarkable little book shows something of the conception and birthing of this vision in our day. This records the beginnings - what will the end be? May it be to the praise and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ!" Patrick Johnstone, author of Operation World "It is as though Hudson Taylor handed a flaming torch to the Chinese church and asked us to continue the race towards the finish line." Brothers Yun and Peter Xu Yongze ---------- "Over 50 years ago God gave a vision for evangelism 'Back to Jerusalem' to a dedicated band of Chinese Christians. Many were imprisoned and some died as martyrs, unable to reachj their goal. But now the torch has been handed on to a new generation. This book graphically explains the background to the movement.
