From Darkness To Sight
The story behind the movie “God’s Not Dead”
A talk by Ming Wang, MD, PhD
Dr. Ming Wang will be guest speaker at a special evening service at Northside Church of Christ. The service, associated with the church's “Community Organized Renewal Efforts” (CORE), is scheduled for 6 PM on Thursday, March 22.
The book God's Not Dead featured a character inspired by the real life story of Dr. Wang. In 2014 the book became a blockbuster movie and the doctor's character was also included in the film version. The book and movie examines the evidence proving the existence of God and describes the lives of several individuals who searched for and finally found God. God’s Not Dead 2 has also been released with great reviews.
As a young teen, Ming fought valiantly to escape one of history’s darkest eras, China’s Cultural Revolution, during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas of the country to face a life sentence of poverty and hard labor. Ming escaped such deportation by learning to play the Chinese er-hu, (violin) and becoming an entertainer for China’s propaganda program. This allowed him the opportunity to continue his education and eventually come to America with $50 in his pocket and an American dream in his heart.
Once in America, against all odds, Dr. Wang would earn a PhD in laser physics and graduate “magna cum laude” with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. He has embraced his Christian faith and a new autobiography about his interesting life, From Darkness to Sight, has also just been released with proceeds funding his charity, The Wang Foundation For Sight Restoration.
