Item Description...
Overview
"Life is like a banquet in a strange land. Great expectation precedes some of the dishes while caution hinders the complete enjoyment of others. As a guest, one is expected to taste and experience each course. Some of the courses are delightful, others are not, but all are given by a concerned host and must be received and appreciated. That is my philosophy of life, a philosophy which I have been practicing at life's banquet for fifty-two years." So begins the story of Dr. Woo Jun Hong in Beggar At The Banquet. When he was living in a humble home in the village of Um-Jang Ni in North Korea, Woo Jun Hong had no idea what sweet and bitter courses lay ahead. He would experience imprisonment and persecution at the hands of the North Korean Communists; a daring escape to freedom in South Korea; trials and successes in starting life anew; and the desire to help all the hungry, war-orphaned children, and share his belief in Christ with all who would listen. With unwavering belief, Woo Jun Hong kept sight of his goals, and in 1968 he opened what has become the largest Christian school in the world. The true story of this remarkable man and his work will be an inspiration to all who read it. The book will provide encouragement for those who find life difficult. The story of Dr. Hong is his own story of God's faithfulness, a proof re-echoed by millions who have walked with God and have believed in His Word.

Publishers Description
"This book is a dynamic and moving story of faith, love, and compassion. It will deeply move and challenge all who read it. Dr. Hong is a giant for God in this generation." --Jerry Falwell, from the foreword "From a hovel in a North Korean town and the status of beggar that is total destitution, through dungeon, fire, and sword, to a place of high respect and honor, Dr. Hong's story will make you laugh, cry, and sigh. You will share the torture of a tyrant's regime, the dreams of an intensely patriotic citizen, and the tenderness of human love." --Pastor Donald Sheley "Life is like a banquet in a strange land. Great expectation precedes some of the dishes while caution hinders the complete enjoyment of others. As a guest, one is expected to taste and experience each course.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The life of Mr. Hong Woo Jun  Nov 4, 2003
Mr. Hong is indeed an incredible man of God whose life story is remarkable and interesting. As far as I know, he does not speak a word of English but I can picture him speaking to the author of this book with my father (who did the translation for this book) standing by listening carefully and believe the story to be straight from Mr. Hong's mouth to our eyes. The only fault I found in the writing was the spelling of certain Korean words that were likely "heard" that way by the author as he jotted down his notes and not as they were actually spoken by Mr. Hong.

Mr. Hong was a young boy living in North Korean when the Japanese occupied the land in the early 1900's. He suffered great persecution/imprisonment for his Christian faith by the Japanese and later the savage Russian invaders and Communists. He managed to escape to the south as the war began. Starting out with a chicken coop and selling of eggs to purchase property (mostly through the efforts of his wife - the dear woman he married after having lost two sweethearts to the war situation - as he was trying to help the beggars of Korea), Mr. Hong now owns and runs the largest privately owned Christian school in the entire world. He's a most wonderful, giving man who God has blessed for his faithfulness. His story is well worth reading and inspiring.

 
Good  Mar 19, 2000
I think that it is good but it could be better. I know that it is an autobiography, but I think that the author could have made it in better words.
