Aquainted with Grief

This is a very interesting book. It is about the struggle of Wang Mingdao. He could the thought of as the father of the current house church movement in China. The book tells his story and about his struggles. He was imprisoned for his beliefs and "re-educated" and then signed a confession, but after signing it he recanted. He spent the next 20 years in prison.

This is very good read for anyone who wants to know more about the persecuted church in China, but I did find that at times the reading was slow, as the author explained many political aspects of what happened in China leading up to the persecution and his thoughts on what should be done now.
