I can understand why some may not be able to hang in there in the beginning. The beginning contains many names and places that are foreign to some of us, so it takes a bit more focus than most books, but that's just the start.
If you can make it past the first 30 minutes of the book, you'll be so happy you did!
This man is truly a pattern for all those who seek to live a life for Christ and the church. I suggest starting with this book, then checking out The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee. I don't care how long you've been a believer, if you haven't touched this yet, YOU WILL BE BLOWN AWAY. These two books will change the way you see your Christian living.
I'm pretty tough when it comes to sad stories, but I'll admit right now that I cried at the end of this book.
May the Lord richly bless all who hear this.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I didn't enjoy this book as much as I expected to, knowing how much I enjoy listening to Watchman Nee's books. I haven't even finished listening to it. Maybe if I complete the book, by the end of it I may have changed my mind. But so far, it's boring.
This biography, evidently compiled with the insight, detail and excellent spirit its subject demands, is a fitting ode to one of the finest and most effective spiritual teachers/martyrs of modern times. Set against the backdrop of China's trade with the West, Christian missions, Japanese occupation, and the rise of communism, it will resonate with Christ-seekers, eliciting passion, heartbreak, indignation and inspiration from the true events, and "truth events", of this remarkable peice of history. I had read Nee's writings, but this book filled a deep desire in me to be absorb the context in which his powerful message was forged and tested. I thank God for Watchman Nee, the gospel he taught, and also for Angus Kinnear's book about him. I cannot remain the same, and if you really soak it all in, neither will you.
