Publisher's Description

From the oppression and terror of the killing fields in Cambodia, this is the story of how one man's conversion led to a rebirth of faith that brought hope to a nation. Commissioned by Communists to spy on a Christian evangelistic crusade, Barnabas Mam instead discovered Jesus and came to faith in Him. After spending four years in prison camps at the hands of the Khmer Rouge Barnabas emerged as one of only 200 surviving Christians in all of Cambodia. God raised him up to became the foremost evangelist and church planter in a land broken by genocide. An inspiring story on a personal, church, and national level, this is more than a narrative--it's a blueprint for success for church growth of the most powerful kind.

Author Bio

BARNABAS MAM has been AFCI's Regional Director for Asia since 2007 and is one of only 200 Christians to survive the Killing Fields of Pol Pot. He joined the Communist party as a teenager and was converted to Christ while spying on a Christian evangelistic meeting in the early 1970's. He was later arrested and sent to the Killing Fields where he spent four years in captivity. After his release Barnabas was forced to flee the country where he spent another eight years in a refugee camp in Thailand where he began the ministry of church-planting. After returning to Cambodia, Barnabas helped rebuild the church in his native land, and over 400 churches have been planted since 1998.

    Wow what a moving story! This book is not a light read but is definitely worth your time. The author of this book retells his story in an engaging manner. You will not be bored while reading about his journey from a member of the Communist party to a follower of Christ.

    The details of his life will change how you see your own life. You will read about how the Christian’s he was ministering to moved from one location to another. This was so the authorities would not get suspicious. Reading this part and others will really help you be more thankful for your own religious freedoms.

    There are parts of this book that were hard to read and yet you see the Lord’s hand in this man’s life. You understand that although times were difficult, the Lord had a purpose and He has a purpose for your life too. I gave this book 4/5 stars because some of the writing just did not flow well. I had to stop numerous times and reread a sentence to make sure I understood it right. This book would be good for anyone wanting to learn more about the life of a Christian in a foreign country.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
