The Holy Spirit will not stop at China’s borders. From the fires of persecution to the toughest frontiers of mission, the children of China are rising up. This book tells stories of the Chinese church previously unpublished in the West, and offers a prophetic insight into China’s key role in the worldwide church. Many Chinese Christians are convinced that the Chinese Church is set to become a powerful missionary force. Chinese believers know how to believe; they know how to pray; and they know how to remember and honour their spiritual heritage. These qualities are leading Chinese believers to speak directly to the rest of the world. The book deals with a number of major themes: confronting the challenges of secularism; anti-Christian sentiment; engaging with Islam; personal and corporate revival. It draws heavily on testimonies and stories from within the Chinese church.

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.

Go behind the scenes of China’s spiritual revival An amazing true adventure that will inspire and challenge you When the Chinese government opened the country to foreigners in early 1978, Dennis Balcombe jumped at the chance to visit. After basing his ministry out of Hong Kong for nearly ten years, he was eager to finally proclaim the gospel in the country he had come to serve. In less than a year, he was meeting house church leaders and supplying them with Bibles for inland distribution, a path that would eventually lead to his arrest. In China’s Opening Door he shares his story, bringing to light the tremendous move of God that has been happening in the country. Filled with incredible accounts of miracles, Bible delivery, daily persecution, and even imprisonment for preaching the gospel, the book serves as an inspiration to believers everywhere about the power and faithfulness of God. The book also issues a challenge: those who live for God will suffer persecution when they stand up for the truth. Had these Chinese house church leaders submitted to the government’s regulations, they would not have gone to prison, and there would have been no persecution. But the tens of thousands who eventually became Christians would still be in darkness.

Defending the Christian faith by demonstrating its reality "Relational Apologetics" is about your life "becoming" a defense of the Christian faith. Every relationship you have is an opportunity for you to connect people to their creator by displaying your hope, both in word and deed. Defending your faith is not just about answering questions and "proving" that God exists. It is about showing that He is real by the way you live. It is about demonstrating the power of God through your holiness. And it is about drawing people to Jesus through your kindness. Using stories and drawing on personal experiences, Sherrard teaches the importance of holiness, treating skeptics with respect, engaging in authentic conversations instead of shouting matches, and having well thought out answers to the skeptic's questions. The book doesn't delve deeply into the scientific and philosophical arguments for the existence of God and the validity of Christianity. Rather, it provides solid, simple, and easily remembered reasons why one should believe. It also teaches essential relational skills that are necessary for talking to skeptics and maintaining healthy relationships with them.
