Christian persecution in China is exposed in this extraordinary life story of Chinese Jesuit George Bernard Wong, who was imprisoned in China for more than 25 years for his religious beliefs. In Bamboo Swaying in the Wind, we get a first-hand glimpse of Wong's remarkable life and enduring faith, and gain spiritual and human insights that can only come from one who has lived such a life of faith. Set in a broader cultural context, this narrative on the topic of Christian persecution in China allows readers to see how one man bridged East and West to live out his Jesuit vocation and serve Chinese Christians in our time.
