Product Description

There are places in this world - dark places - where Christianity is a capital offense. In America we live without persecution, or at least without the type of persecution that is currently being experienced by countless brothers and sisters in other countries. Faithful witnesses, even when faced with death, stand in our place all over the world, and this books tells the story of the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters caught up in the real drama that has been the reality of Christianity outside of America and Europe.
India, China, Indonesia, North Korea. These are some of the most dangerous places to live if you are a Christian, and (due to many factors) Christian women are in a much worse position. These stories are harsh reminders of both the blessing of living in a country where persecution happens only very rarely and that these atrocities are still happening on a daily basis around the world. This book will give faces and voices to the sometimes invisible victims and guide you in supporting these and other Christian women as they struggle to live out their Christian witness in a world that desperately needs Christ.

Publisher's Description

Throughout the world today, Christians continue to face intense persecution, and Christian women are often the most vulnerable. In Pakistan, Christian girls are systematically kidnapped, tortured and raped. In China, underground church leaders are sent to labor camps for hosting illegal home meetings. In Sudan, Christian women are captured and sold into slavery or mutilated and left to die. And in many Muslim countries, a woman can be killed by her husband or father for converting to Christianity. In this deeply moving book, Kay Marshall Strom and Michele Rickett tell the stories of persecuted Christian women from around the world. From Africa to the Middle East to Asia, they give voice to our sisters persevering under the yoke of oppression and injustice. Each section provides specific prayer points and practical action steps to equip us to respond to the issues at hand. Above all, these stories remind us that suffering is part of the call of followers of Jesus. The challenges do not mean that God has abandoned us. Rather, God is active and present with his suffering people. Do not be discouraged. Take heart from these daughters of hope.
