Product Description

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."

Editorial Reviews

"Finally, a book has been written to speak for those needing a voice in the American church. In this book, Greg Cochran has done a superb job of addressing Christian persecution throughout the world in a way that is clear, well-researched, biblically sound, and practically insightful. No one will be able to read this book and be unmoved by the author's powerful call to prioritize the persecuted for Christ around the world. Read this book!  I dare you. Just know that you will not be the same after."

"Greg Cochran is my friend and he was my pastor for nine years. He has given more thought to the issue of the persecuted church than any other one hundred Christians I know combined. This book is a distillation of much of that thought. If you’re skimming this endorsement to determine if you want to read the book, please allow me to offer a suggestion. Read the story of Sister Yuen in the Introduction. If that doesn’t open your heart to be concerned about the issue discussed in this book then you should pray for the Lord to help you with your hardness of heart."

"Persecution lies in the context of much of the Scriptures, and persecution emerges as a significant theme throughout the biblical story. Persecution also remains the daily reality for millions of Christians, and is in some sense the experience of all Christians. Christians in the Crosshairs: Persecution in the Bible and around the World Today sheds biblical, theological, missional, and practical light on this difficult but awe-inspiring theme of persecution. Clear, edifying, thoughtful, and mature, this book is based on years of research, teaching, pastoral ministry, and praying about persecution. Even more, it is important for understanding the Bible, persecution, the church, our mission, the culture, and ourselves."
