Sundar Singh (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

51eu3vl8dtl-_sx325_bo1204203200_Searching since boyhood for the way to God, Sundar Singh found truth in Jesus Christ. At sixteen, the former Sikh became a Christian sadhu, or holy man, and at great risk devoted his life to Christ. With bare feet and few possessions, Sundar crossed the precarious Himalayas between India and Tibet many times, sharing the gospel with Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs — even thieves.

As he traveled, Sundar constantly read the Bible, prayed, and meditated, confident that God was always with him, even in the face of death. Preaching in Asia, Europe, and as far away as America, this Indian saint impacted thousands with his quiet yet bold words and actions.

  1. This is a very simple and straightforward book about Sundar’s journey. One thing that stood out to me was that God has planted a definite vision and desire in Sundar to go across the borders to preach the gospel publicly. This vision properly guided him, allowing him to quickly decide in withdrawing from Saint John’s and to travel to different places. In this I saw that God has different plans for each one of us: some will stay and serve at a local church, some will go across borders, some will preach in their work, and etc. I realized I’ve cultivated a very narrow view of where and what a minister can do. Seeing Sundar I learned once again that God’s work isn’t done within a single family, one church, or a particular nation, but it is accomplished wherever we are called to go.


  2. Sundar lived such a simple, sacrificial, and beautiful life because he had his priorities straight. He was able to personally experience the power and presence of God throughout his many journeys! Reading his story also made me think about the cultures and societies that are hostile to Christianity and what it would take to reach them.
