Claudia Devaux & George Bernard Wong, S.J. Bamboo Swaying in the Wind reveals the extraordinary life story of Chinese Jesuit George Bernard Wong, who was imprisoned in China for more than 25 years for his religious beliefs.  It is a story of romance, joy, political intrigue, cultural revolution, historic oppression, and living hope.  Readers come to know a man of profound faith and endurance who not only survived years of incarceration and solitary confinement but was able to emerge from these experiences with his gentle spirit still intact.  In telling his tale, Wong offers readers spiritual and human insights that can only come from one who has lived such a life. Much of Wong's story remained blocked from memory until recent, gentle talks with coauthor Claudia Devaux drew it out.  Set in a broader cultural context, the narrative allows readers to appreciate this unique personal account of how one man bridged East and West to live out his Jesuit vocation and serve Chinese Christians in our time. 114207 Devaux & Wong, Claudia Devaux, George Bernard Wong
