“Persecuted The Global Assault On Christians” by Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert, Nina Shea is an excellent resource for those who want to understand what really happens to believers in places where Christianity is not accepted.
In a time in which Christians in the United States of America are bowing to political correctness it is important to understand why we as believers must not submit our rights to publicly acknowledge Jesus. In reading this book the one thing that will be apparent is the depths in which others will go to silence those who speak the truth of Jesus.
Though perhaps not the intent of the authors “Persecuted The Global Assault On Christians” serves as an excellent argument for supporting missionaries and the ministries of those who are brave enough to work ‘behind enemy lines’ in distributing the Word of God.
“We’re not waging war against enemies of flesh and blood alone. No, this fight is against tyrants, against authorities, against supernatural powers and demon princes that slither in the darkness of this world, and against wicked spiritual armies that lurk about in heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
This is one of those books that you don’t want to read but need to. I don’t think, the average reader of Christian non-fiction will read the book in a week, perhaps he or she may skim through some chapters while reading others. I am sure there are those who will find the 314 pages of information found within this book serve only as confirmation of what was suspected . For me it was a difficult read not because of the sentence structure or the flow of information but reading of the trials and tribulations my brothers and sisters in Christ endure.
Ephesians 6:12 serves as confirmation as to the truth of this book, as you read this book bear this remember this verse. The last chapter is “A Call to Action.” First order of business pray for those who are in the heat of the battle.
I recommend this book and suggest that the reader purchase a copy. Marsha L. Randolph
