Summary

Be inspired by amazing eyewitness stories of hope and courage from the persecuted church

Are we witnessing an astonishing escalation in Christian persecution like we have rarely seen since the first century? Some say that every five minutes, a Christian is martyred for his or her faith. Countries like Egypt have allegedly experienced more Christian persecution in the last five years than in the previous 600 years combined. And who could have missed the atrocities of ISIS in Syria, Boko Haram in Nigeria, and the continued persecution of Christians in North Korea?

Johnnie Moore, like many American Christians, didn't fully appreciate the extent of what was going on - until he witnessed the graduation of theology students in India. Unlike graduation ceremonies in America - where feel-good speeches made by visiting celebrities are common - this one featured a remarkable oath. It wasn't an oath to excel or succeed. It was an oath to be willing to die, if necessary, for the cause of Christ. This was no empty promise. This was a choice, choosing the eternal over the temporal.

Johnnie knew he was witnessing a raw, first-century Christianity that his comfortable American version had shielded him from. "For the first time, I really understand my faith", says Johnnie Moore. Now, he's on a mission to give this same experience to others. He and his team have crisscrossed the world, recorders in hand, gathering eyewitness accounts from dozens of people who survived persecution - and the stories of some who didn't.

Join Johnnie Moore on this compelling journey to the heart of the Christian faith.

Powerful

This was a revelation to me as a western school teacher to hear how hard people have life for their faith. It also inspired me to live out my belief that a ‘crown of righteousness’ is waiting for me.
I would love to use these resources in school to prepare students to live out their faith with confidence.
The quote about “take risks, not care” will become my mantra.
Thank you for his inspirational audiobook.

A blessing

Initially, I thought " Oh here we go. one more book about how bad the Western church is. " Instead whayI got was encouragement in my walk with Jesus. Specific instruction on dealing with the enemy of our souls. Encouragement on praying for our brothers and sisters, and specific ways to help and be a part of this very special work for the LORD.

Great book

This book is another eye opener. Moore does a good job of recounting the accounts of several persecuted Christians around the world. He also challenges us in the Western World to live for the Jesus these persecuted souls are willing or have died for. What a conviction for us all to do more. Well done!
