Full Product Description
A woman is caught with a Bible and publicly shot to death. An elderly priest is abducted and never seen again. Three buses full of students and teachers are struck by roadside bombs. These are not casualties of a war. These are Christian believers being persecuted for their faith in the twenty-first century.
Many Americans do not understand that Christians today are victims in many parts of the world. Even many Western Christians, who worship and pray without fear of violent repercussions, are unaware that so many followers of Christ live under governments and among people who are often openly hostile to their faith. They think martyrdom became a rarity long ago.
Persecuted soundly refutes these assumptions. This book offers a glimpse at the modern-day life of Christians worldwide, recounting the ongoing attacks that rarely make international headlines.
As Western Christians pray for the future of Christ’s church, it is vital that they understand a large part of the world’s Christian believers live in danger. Persecuted gives documented accounts of the persecution of Christians in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and former Soviet nations. It contains vivid stories of men and women who suffer abuse because of their faith in Jesus Christ, and tells of their perseverance and courage..
Persecuted is far more than a thorough and moving study of this global pattern of violence—it is a cry for freedom and a call to action.

"Persecuted (by Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert, and Nina Shea) is a large, collective documentation of Christian persecution stories from all around the globe. This ten chapter book is an involving, entertaining, shocking, but much needed Christian book that speaks of the reality and cost of being a Christian, but also the terrible injustice that has “mysteriously” befallen this group. This book really brings much needed awareness of the reality of Christian persecution, insults, deaths, and sufferings that happen everyday around the world (from the Middle East to Asia), and calls on sympathizers to start standing up and coming to the aid of Christians. This particular Christian persecution book is arguably the most practical one I’ve heard and come across so far, which is why it is important for Christians to read, so they can get an awareness of what their faith entails, but also to stand strong and help Christians who are being, in many cases, unjustly treated and tortured throughout the world, even in the Western world." - Other retailer's reviewer.
