Product Description

Through the horrors of war and intense and almost unbelievable persecution for their faith in Christ, the characters in this novel - all composites of people known to the author - display enduring perseverance and courage. The underlying truth of each fictional episode makes this book much more than mere fiction. It is the gripping story of real people who would not recant their faith despite the most traumatizing conditions. Truly the gates of hell could not overcome China's courageous believers of Jesus Christ.

    The Persecuted Church in China

    "Red Runs the River" is veteran missionary, Anthony Bollback's story of the persecuted church in China since the take over of Communism in the decades from 1960 - 1970.

    Bollback's writing is highly acclaimed by missionary statesmen, Christian leaders and educators as being sensitive, historically accurate, gripping and passionate.

    Another time, another government, and a changing economy: but always bloodshed for the Christian Church in the broad expanse of China's history and vast area. Because of the nature of the persecuted church in China today and to protect those faithful in the Christian movement going on currently, Bollback has chosen the medium of historical fiction to tell the story behind the reality of martyrdom and imprisonment among Chinese Christians.

    Much of the story is centered on the lives of Meiling and Anching and their love for each other. These and other characters developed in the story are composites of real people many of whom are known by Bollback.

    As a veteran writer Bollback knows how to capture the feelings of anguish, the passion of purpose, and the realism of intimidation and of danger experienced by committed Christians in China today. The story contains all the elements of drama, intrigue, romance, conflict and resolution.

    "Red Runs the River" challenges the Church with a wake up call to the realty that Christians around the world are being persecuted for their faith. This is a call to intercessory prayer. The story is compelling, eye opening, a page turner. Heart touching and life changing.

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I spent 24 years as a missionary with The Christian and Missionary Alliance in China, Hong Kong and Japan. During those years, my wife and I were engaged in church planting and can look with joy on several outstanding churches that are flourishing today. I have been writing since 1990, both for children and adults. I have five books in an exciting series known as The Jack and Jenny Mystery Series. These are exciting stories based on actual facts from our years in Hong Kong. They present the gospel to children ages 9-14 in a captivating way so that they do not want to put the books down once they start reading them. I have also been a pastor in the USA and a district superintendent for my denomination. I publish a monthly e-mail newsletter on China called CHINA CLIPPINGS. This is available without charge to anyone subscribing by contacting me on my e-mail: Kahu@juno.com/

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The persection that has taken place in China since the Communists took over in 1949 and the subsequent years of trial and imprisonment of valiant Chinese brothers and sisters, led me to write RED RUNS THE RIVER to challenge the American church to awaken from sleep and understand that we also may face similar situations in America some day. Most of all, I wanted Christians to know about these unusual Chinese people who are witnessing Book-of-Acts experiences in their lives and experiencing the most amazing revival in the history of the nation.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that everyone who reads this book will be challenged to live a life totally committed to Jesus and to follow Him wherever He leads. I am especially praying that young people will read this book and be challenged. I praise the Lord that some letters have already been received stating that young people have committed themselves to following Him with all their hearts.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My favorite authors who have influnced my life are Jim Cymbala, Chuck Swindol, Max Lucado, A. B. Simpson, A. W. Tozer.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I am the author of eight other books that focus on China and the great movement of God in that land. All of these books can be viewed on my web site www.bollback.com. One is my autobiography called TO CHINA AND BACK.
