A new book titled Speaking of Faith Proudly - That's How a Party Class Should Be Taught was officially published on September 20 and sold out within 48 hours. The sales volume of this book was second only to Seven Years of Xi Jinping as Village Cadre under the category of political and military books at the popular online book store dangdang.com, and it ranked third in the same category on JD.com. Xu Chuan, a main author of this book, is Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee of the College of Energy and Power at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA) and a deputy to the 19th CPC National Congress.

In 2016, Xu Chuan went viral online because of his article titled "Why I Joined the Communist Party of China", which was forwarded by People's Daily and the official microblog of the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China and other official organizations as well as more than 300 official accounts. "An online star" and a college politics teacher, Xu Chuan seems to be very comfortable in these two identities.

Xu's Party lectures have been popular at NUAA for a long time. His classroom was always crowded and even students from other colleges came to take his class.

Xu Chuan is director of the online political education research center of NUAA, and this isn't an honorary position because the network has become a new carrier of political education. Since the official account of "NUAA Xu Chuan" was opened a year ago, it has answered more than 100,000 questions raised by the students and has stayed on top of the list of official accounts operated by college instructors. A series of articles such as Talking about Youth on December 9, Talking about Heroes on the Army Day and Talking about China on the Youth's Day have been browsed for more than 10 million times. Only 10% of the official account followers are from NUAA, indicating that this cross-school online politics classroom has established influence nationwide.

Being elected as a deputy to the 19th CPC National Congress, Xu Chuan said he was both honored and worried and felt much pressure, but he will do his best to live up to his duties both as a deputy and as a teacher. "I will be with the young people, be their friends, and help them grow."
