Imagine living in a place where telling others about Jesus could get you arrested, even sent to prison. That was the reality for Bob Fu and his wife Heidi when they were imprisoned in 1996 for running an illegal house-church in Beijing. By day, Fu was an English teacher in a Communist school, by night he preached in an underground church network.
In God's Double Agent, Fu tells his remarkable story, from growing up in heart-breaking poverty, to discovering the life-changing power of the Gospel as a student, to his efforts to help persecuted Christians in China. Reading Fu's story will inspire you to boldly proclaim and live out your faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times hostile, to those who spread the gospel. Paperback.

Bob Fu is indeed God's double agent. By day Fu worked as a full-time lecturer in a communist school; by night he pastored a house church and led an underground Bible school. This can't-put-it-down book chronicles Fu's conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape, and his subsequent rise to prominence in the United States as an advocate for his brethren. God's Double Agent will inspire readers even as it challenges them to boldly proclaim and live out their faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times murderously hostile, to those who spread the gospel.
Bob is a distinguished professor on religion and public policy at Midwest University and a research PhD candidate at Durham University, UK. In addition to being the China analyst for Voice of the Martyrs, Bob is editor-in-chief of Chinese Law and Religion Monitor, a journal on religious freedom and the rule of law in China, and guest editor for Chinese Law and Government, a journal of UCLA.

Del5 Stars Out Of 5This Is The First Book My 12 Year Old Daughter Wanted for Her New KindleDecember 26, 2014DelQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 12 year old daughter who is a VERY avid reader, had checked this book out of the library a few months ago and really enjoyed it. When she got a new Kindle for Christmas this is the first purchase she wanted to make. She's been recommending this book to all of her friends. I haven't read the book yet but am now going to purchase a hard copy and read it for myself. If a 12 year old can handle a 336 page book and want to reread it, I figure it must be exceptional.
HankRed Lake ONAge: Over 65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5God's Double AgentAugust 26, 2014HankRed Lake ONAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Having made a recent visit to China this book piqued my interest. We visited 2 Churches on Sundays and also met with several Pastors, plus visited a seminary. In each case they indicated a lot of freedom in preaching the Gospel and for teaching children and training leaders. These were Registered Churches and obviously this is 15 plus years later and there have been changes. Bob was a revolutionary before he became a Christian and continued his fight for more freedoms after. He is to be commended for his willingness to suffer for the cause of Christ. In any case, I found the book to be interesting, but have no way of knowing if his work has influenced some of these changes. We know there is persecution in many places and it is a challenge for us to be in prayer for such.
