Publisher's Description

Christians are the world’s most widely persecuted religious group, according to studies by the Pew Research Center, Newsweek, and the Economist, among others.

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.

    Well documented and very informative, Persecuted gives examples of the oppression of, and violence against, Christians all over the world. The book discusses the laws, both religious and political, that make life as a Christian in certain countries difficult, or impossible. From atheistic, communist nations to those ruled by religious law, such as Islam, each country is discussed and individual stories are told. While the main focus is on Christian persecution, the book also points out where other religions are persecuted as well, driving home the intolerance of these areas.

    Thanks to organizations such as The Voice of the Martyr, I was aware of the religious intolerance against Christians before reading this book. However, to have so much information in one book was heartbreaking. Every Christian should read this book and remember to keep the persecuted church in their prayers.

    I received a complimentary digital copy of this book for review purposes from BookSneeze.

    Persecuted by Paul Marshall, Lela GIlbert, and Nina Shea is a thorough look at Christian persecution in various countries throughout the world. The book is written like a news report, and goes through 41 different countries that are of concern as far as persecution and religious freedom infringements go.

    All I can say after reading this book is: wow. I knew that Christians were persecuted throughout the world, but this book really explained the who/what/where of persecution for me, including some places that surprised me. The countries that surprised me most were India and North Korea, along with Iran and Saudi Arabia. I wasn't even aware of how much persecution goes on in India at all. And I knew that North Korea, Iran, and Saudi Arabia had a lot of Christian persecution, but I didn't realize how restrictive and severe the persecution was.

    This book was very thorough and very factual, giving a lot of statistics mixed in with specific examples of persecution in each country. But even though the text itself was very straight-forward, I found myself really thinking more about Christians in other countries and the great need they have for our prayers! I'm thinking of re-reading this book and praying specifically for Christians in each country.

    One other thing I got from this book is how I really don't have an excuse for not telling others about my faith in Jesus. Here are these Christians in other countries who lose their jobs, their families, their freedom, and their lives for choosing to follow Jesus - and I'm afraid to tell someone what I believe because they might give me a funny look? It really puts things into perspective.

    I definitely think this is a book that every Christian should read, and praying for Christians who are being persecuted is something we all should do more of - and this book will inspire you to do that.

    Note: I received this book for free from Booksneeze in exchange for this review. This is my honest opinion.

    Killed for having a Bible in your 2010? Killed for going against Muslim and becoming a 2011? What? These things are STILL continuing. I think the mindset that we often have is that all of those awful things happened a long time ago or in really desperate communities in a foreign land. I live in the United States and I constantly hear about our rights as Christians being cut off. "In God we trust?" is no longer what this country stands upon, BUT we are NOT persecuted for our faith as others are on a daily basis. We do not go to secret churches in order to not be killed. We can go to a mega church and worship Christ all that we want, read our multiple Bibles in any format, and if we can't make it to church we can just stream in online. For a country that has all of these at our fingertips, we definitely take all of these things for granted.

    This book has been researched and is full of information regarding laws and awful stories about persecution for multiple countries. It breaks different countries up and then discusses each one. I liked how the book was set up and organized, it made it flow better. The stories are so very sad, but more than anything this book made me feel guilty because I take the Bible and church and worship completely for granted. I should be thankful, I should be helping people who can't do these things freely, and more importantly, showing others in this country why the Bible and a relationship with Christ is life changing.

    My home is in a society where we are aware of persecutions but generally, aren't faced with immediate personal threats. Today, I went with my family to church where we worshiped, prayed, and learned from God's Word openly without once worrying about governmental or societal repression. I have always been aware of Christian persecution, but never have I read about so many contemporary people being persecuted in one book. Some sections were especially difficult to read. Imprisonment, death, or torture of fellow Christians is never easy to read, and therefore, I would urge readers to use discretion when sharing the book, or its contents, with younger readers.

    Though the Bible tells us we, as Christians, will suffer (I Peter 4:12-13), not everyone faces the same suffering and persecution. It is important to know what fellow brothers and sisters in Christ are experiencing around the world. Knowledge often leads to action, and this could be the greatest impact Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians may have for readers in the present day church.

    I highly recommend this book. It is one I will keep to slowly work through again over time. It will serve as a reference, a prayer guide, and starting point for further studies for me.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
