Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Tens of millions of Christians live in China today, many of them leading double lives or in hiding from a government that relentlessly persecutes them. Bob Fu, whom the Wall Street Journal called "The pastor of China's underground railroad," is fighting to protect his fellow believers from persecution, imprisonment, and even death. God's Double Agent is his fascinating and riveting story.

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's testimony and endurance in the face of danger was very encouraging. This book shows God at work in the life of His servants, and how He carried Bob and his family through. The Lord is amazing, and this book is a clear insight into God's faithfulness through persecution.

    My 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.

    Having 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.

    At the beginning of the book it will grab your attention. God's Love and Mercy is so amazing and the story of Bob Fu is an example that our heavenly Father had a plan for our life and that our steps are ordered by Him!
