A HEART FOR FREEDOM by Chai Ling

The remarkable journey of a young dissident, her daring escape, and her quest to free China’s daughters.

Available now from Christian Audio.

Listen to a sample here:

“A key leader in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, Ling has written a candid and compassionate memoir of her years at Beijing University, her rise to leadership in the student movement, her escape and eventual embrace of Christianity. A gifted writer with a passion for justice, she weaves a tantalizing web of childhood and young adult experiences to describe her misgivings about the Communist Party of China; her awakening, with other students, to the writings of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.; and her growing sense of empowerment as a woman. What’s especially remarkable about her story is the lack of bitterness toward many in the Communist regime and especially Deng Xiaoping, China’s leader at the time. This book will be treasured not only by Western China watchers and evangelical Christians who have no doubt embraced Ling as their own, but by anyone interested in how protest movements arise, grow, and work though their internal conflicts. Hers is a tale of human dignity and the imperative to live a life of meaning.” Publisher’s Weekly (print review)

  1. Thank you for sharing your review on Chai Ling’s book. Almost all the reviews I have read on the net are all positive. This book is a compelling biography recommended for everyone, most especially those who are interested in China’s history and those who are struggling with failure, hurt and shame. This book is an excellent resource for all seekers who search for true meaning and purpose while battling our private fears and regrets.
