I’m currently writing my dissertation on the Shandong Revival, 1927-37. One of the more important figures in this revival was John Sung.

I’ve been greatly encouraged by reading excerpts from his diary, as well as other biographies, including an excellent dissertation by Ka-Tong Lim.
If you are wondering how you can learn more about this great man of God, here is a link to an entry on him in the Biographical Dictionary of Chinese Christianity:
