Possibly because nearly every school of architecture uses his books as their texts. In addition his books illustrate visually massive amounts of pertinent information. Speaking purely for myself it's easier to make sense of general codes and basic construction details when they are illustrated rather than written out in legalese. I wouldn't say Ching is revered, I'd describe him as famous due to the fact his books are most architects introduction to a lot of aspects of the field.
