Paul Hattaway
Paul Hattaway is the international director of Asia Harvest, an organization that is committed to serving the church throughout all of Asia. As a result of this position and his service as a missionary in China for more than thirty years, he is an expert on the Chinese church.

He is the writer of the best-selling book “Operation China”, “The Heavenly Man” (which is about Brother Yun), and several other books. Since his work is sensitive he avoids being photographed.

His principal told him that he was a waste of oxygen before he got kicked out of high school. When he was just a young boy growing up in New Zealand, his sister attempted smothering him with a pillow. Paul spent a few years of his life doing odd jobs after being booted out of high school. In the year 1986, he moved to Australia, where he wound up living as a homeless man.

While he was working at a warehouse, one of his co-workers invited him to come to church. He agreed to go along, thinking he would end up finding plenty of reasons to scoff at the whole thing. It turned out that he sensed the love of the people there, and ended up accepting Jesus as Lord in his life in the year 1987. He says that a deep responsibility started dawning on him. It was like he just found the cure for cancer, and he wanted to tell everybody just as quickly as possible.

One of his Christian friends took him to some Christian bookstore, and he bought a book called “Operation World”, which is part prayer guide and part reference book for the countries of the world. Paul found himself being amazed by the needs of the world. It wasn’t too long before he responded to an appeal for some donkeys for Christ in order to help smuggle Bibles into the country of China.

“The Heavenly Man: The Remarkable True Story of Chinese Christian Brother Yun” is a non-fiction book and was released in the year 2002. A dramatic autobiography of one of China’s most dedicated, intensely persecuted, and brave house church leaders. This is the gripping tale of how God took a half-starved, young boy from a poor village in Henan province and placed him on the front line for Jesus, right in the face of impossible odds.

Instead of focusing on the experiences of suffering or all the various miracles, but Yun prefers to focus on the beauty and the character of Jesus. Interspersed with his personal accounting are contributions from Deling, his wife, made mostly during her husband’s frequent imprisonment periods.

Readers are sure to remember where they were the first time they read this life story. It is a watershed book that is sure to turn the reader to praise and to prayer. This is a challenging read on many levels, while you remain glued to the story throughout in order to understand this one guy’s journey, persecution, and the obstacles just for wanting to pursue his faith. It is an enlightening story, and it is unbelievable yet still totally believable. You find yourself in awe and find yourself continuing to read in order to learn about this man’s journey.

“An Asian Harvest: An Autobiography” is Paul’s memoir and was released in the year 2017. Paul Hattaway, a Bible courier and missionary, was a high-school dropout from New Zealand, he was lonely, homeless, and hungry, before he was able to find faith in this gripping memoir. However once he first encountered the love of God and finally read the Bible, he never looked back. The rest of his life has since centered on making sure that all the people in Asia have got Bibles of their own.

Paul has traveled, through Asian Harvest, has traveled to Bangladesh, India, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, as well as many other Asian countries bringing with him the gospel. His ministry has provided more than ten million Bibles to China alone, and he has sponsored over fifteen hundred Asian missionaries.

The story about Paul’s conversion, the struggles he has faced with the realities of the mission field and other missionaries, the fascinating places that he has faithfully followed God to, and the tremendous miracles that God’s performed along the way make this quite the inspiring and remarkable read.

Readers found themselves being encouraged and convicted by this book. It may be Paul’s story, but it is also his testimony of sanctification and redemption even more so. Paul tells it in a very straightforward manner, just interrupting so that he can illustrate with a scripture verse or two. The pages of this book have been filled with the testimonies of Paul and Joy who counted up the costs and figured that His calling is everything in their lives.

“Tibet: The Roof of the World” is a non-fiction book and was released in the year 2020. It is thought that this book is to be the very first attempt to present an overview of all Christian activity throughout history in Tibet. The Tibetan Plateau is inaccessible, mountainous, and vast, as it is three times the total land area of all of the United Kingdom, however with just a tenth of its population. Most Tibetans claim they are Buddhists, yet for many Buddhism is just a facade for much darker and older beliefs. The spiritual realm is a daily reality for people in Tibet.

There are just a tiny amount of Tibet Christians, however the ‘Roof of the World’ has both a remarkable and a long Christian history. Paul recounts the tales of the many tenacious and brave women and men that have tried to exalt the Name of Jesus Christ in Tibet, against the overwhelming odds and right in the face of some powerful spiritual forces.

Paul delivers a detailed account, showing a ton of research, concerning each of the witnesses in Tibet. Rather than just be a dry history of what happened, the author tells the tales about many Tibetan Christians and missionaries, making this well worth the read.
