The 184-page titled ''Liu Chi-wen: Biography of a Revolutionary Leader'' was published privately by the Liu Chi-Wen family. "The Liu family expect that, by reading this book, the future generations may appreciate the kind of people Mr. and Mrs. Liu were and their contributions to their country and people. The readers may also gain an understanding of this unusual family, their traditional Chinese principles, and own Christian beliefs and values."
