BTJ’s top selling book in 2024 is BURY ME IN CHINA: THE MAN WHO DARED BRING THE GOSPEL TO CHINA. “We have never seen a book sell like this,” says Bethany Hope, the director and founder of Underground Publishing House.
Since its release in November 2023, BURY ME IN CHINA has outsold every book that BTJ has ever written and this year, online sales is currently outpacing all the other book put together!
Robert Morrison was the first missionary to China more than 200 years ago and had a dream to get the Bible into the most populated nation on earth, but that dream seemed unattainable. His story has never really been told until now.
“There is just nothing out there like this,” Bethany continued while discussing the surprising sales of the book. “There are books about Hudson Taylor and other Chinese missionaries, but nothing like this about Robert Morrison.”
Facing insurmountable opposition, this book tells how Morrison published the first Chinese translation of the New Testament, produced the first Chinese-English dictionary, baptized the first Protestant believer in China, established the first Chinese evangelist, translated the first version of the Confucian Classics directly to English, and started the first English-Chinese educational institution.
BURY ME IN CHINA tells how Morrison gave the ultimate sacrifice to translate, print, smuggle, and distribute the entire Chinese Bible inside of China – how he lost friends and loved ones, buried two children, a wife, and eventually died on the mission field, thousands of miles away from the land of his birth.
