Product Description

A foreign culture, with a belief in Jesus but not the Messiah and Lord that Christians profess. A culture where true belief in Christ can be a death sentence. Where accurate information about Christianity can be hard to come by, and the ability to assess the truth of information about it is difficult to obtain. Where people you know and love exercise hatred toward Christianity, America, and professing Christians. Like you.
Become immersed in a forbidden culture - that of Christians in lands where it is a capital crime to be so. The prose draws you into the story, the true story of these courageous men and women, who have forsaken friends, family, safety, and sometimes their own lives for the sake of Christ. The first, larger part of the book chronicles over a decade of drama, intrigue, revelations, and trials of these outlaw believers and the Christians who risk everything to be in a place to help them. Part two challenges readers to respond to the issues and truths covered in the first part, and gently leads concerned parties to proper attitudes towards Muslims and issues surrounding this highly volatile modern reality.

Publisher's Description

In his most incredible and eye-opening book to date, Brother Andrew invites you to meet brave men and women you never knew existed. This is the riveting true story of the Church in Islamic countries struggling to come to grips with hostile governments, terrorist acts, and an influx of Muslims coming to Christ. The names and places have been changed to protect the real people in the real places. But the stories are true.
Now available in paperback, Secret Believers not only gives you a glimpse of the lives of these courageous believers, it also proposes four practical initiatives for Christians in the West to help these persecuted brothers and sisters. It calls us to join a new kind of jihad, leaving vengeance behind in favor of forgiveness, radical love, and unyielding prayer.

    This book gives great sight into the Muslim community and what it is life for a Muslim to become a follower of Christ. It reads like a novel since the true stories of various individuals are combined into a few individuals who become the characters in the book. The book concludes with challenges to Western Christians to reach out to Muslims for Christ. This book was given by a friend to a Muslim who had become a believer in Christ. The new believer then passed it aroundto others in their community.

    This a faith-challenging; faith-convicting book. Anybody who reads it will re-kindle their fire for the love and service of God . I hope that my faith is as unshaken and bold as that of the characters. Compelling and thrilling to read. Anyone that confesses that Jesus Christ is their Lord should read it.

    Stories of Muslims Who Choose to Follow Christ

    "Secret Believers: What Happens When Muslims Believe in Christ" is made up of dramatic stories of the lives of Muslims who turn to faith in Jesus Christ. It tells of the struggles and difficulties that they face when they become followers of Christ. Even though Christian Muslims receive opposition from their families, countries, and governments when they abandon the faith of Islam they often share their newfound Christian faith with other Muslims who are longing to know more about the message of Jesus.

    The writing is Intensive and compelling. The multiple characters and difficult Muslim names sometimes become confusing making it hard to follow the plot as their stories appear throughout the narrative.

    Part 2 of the book includes some thoughts on how as Christians we can respond to the stories. An appendix includes "A Letter from the Afghan Persecuted Church of Christ" written to then President George W. Bush to alert the Western world of the plight of the persecuted church in Afghanistan. I found the selected bibliography helpful.

    "Secret Believers: What Happens When Muslims Believe in Christ" is a call to Christian believers to be reminded that we are in the midst of spiritual warfare and to recognize the need for committed prayer for our Christian brothers and sisters in Muslim countries, to intercede for the persecuted church, and to reach out in love to the individual Muslims in our personal world. This is important reading for every Christian.

    I believe his book is excellent! It challenges me to pray for the Muslim world--that their eyes be open to the true Jesus. It also broke my heart for those who sacrifice everything to follow Him.

    A must read book for anyone seeking to gain better understanding of the challenges faced by followers of Christ in Muslim countries. I couldn't put the book down! The novel/biography portion was a page turner. The challenges given by Brother Andrew in the last part of the book are convicting in a hopeful way. They challenge Christians around the world to be more Christlike and give specific ways that we can make an impact for and with fellow Christ followers in countries under Islamic law.
