A Glimpse into the Life and Ministry of Dr. Charles Chao Nov 24, 2007
I read this autobiography in "one sitting." I was fascinated to learn more of the personal biography of Reformed theologian Dr. Charles Chao - the first man to ever translate Reformed and Puritan works into the Chinese tongue. This inspiring book shares with us the story of Dr. Chao's geographical journey from the East to the West, as well as his spiritual journey from his Christian conversion in China to his ordination as a minister in the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA). We learn of the Lord's providences in crossing his paths with that of other theologians (including Dr. Lorraine Boettner) who were influential in shaping Dr. Chao's theological convictions. In addition, we read of the birth of Dr. Chao's ministry in Reformed Translation Fellowship. In reading this gripping real-life story, we are not only reminded of our need of the Lord's grace in our lives, but also comforted and encouraged by God's faithfulness and mighty power in using Dr. Chao as a vessel to proclaim the good news of His sovereign grace in the midst of sufferings, life-threatening trials, and persecution of communist China.
