In a world in which Christians are resident aliens, living in the world but not of it, and following a Master who is offensive to many, disdain and hostility seems natural. Gregory C. Cochran's Christians in the Crosshairs: Persecution in the Bible and Around the World Today offers an insightful and encouraging exploration of the declaration found in 2 Timothy 3:12, "Indeed, all who desire to live godly lives in Christ Jesus will be persecuted," in light of the entire biblical teaching about Christian persecution.
Cochran's book is an attempt to begin a dialogue about the reality of Christian persecution, explaining what the Bible teaches about the dynamic of Christian persecution--to understand the topic in the here and now. He provides structure that will lead Christians to a Christ-glorifying response to their persecution, while clarifying why all Christians--even those of us in America--should be (and in fact probably are being) persecuted. Christians in the Crosshairs provides a wake-up call to the modern church, especially in the United States.
"My hope for all who read this volume," writes the Cochran, "is a strengthened faith....The Gospel, with its resurrection power, is able to take the worst situations and reframe them in victory. Hearing stories of triumph through suffering has been nothing short of glorious."
