Dennis Balcombe: China’s Opening Door

When Balcombe first moved to Hong Kong he spent much of his time ministering to the underground house churches. More recently he has also begun to minister in the government approved Three-Self Churches, who have been very receptive to his ministry, which is very Pentecostal. Balcombe’s ministry usually focuses on the Holy Spirit and revival.

Though the church in China is flourishing it is not without need. It still has a great need for Bibles and other study materials. At the beginning of the book Balcombe states that there was a group of 40,000 Christians in one province of China that had only one Bible that they had to share! Balcombe’s ministry is very active in supplying many Chinese believers with Bibles and other study materials.

This book is wonderful testimony of what God is doing in China by the power of the Holy Spirit. Balcombe is very optimistic that a day is coming when there will be an even greater open door of ministry in China. If you have an interest in Asian Christianity in general or Chinese Christianity in particular you will enjoy this book. It will inform you and inspire you; it will also let you know that there are things that you can do to serve the church in China. May the Lord continue to fan the fires of His Spirit in one of the greatest revivals in the history of the church!
