    Jesus Freaks (Stories of those who stood for JESUS, the ultimate Jesus freaks) by dc Talk and The Voice of the Martyrs is an updated and revised release of the classic book originally published in 1999. First, we need to acknowledge the legendary Christian rap group, dc Talk which had a part in putting together this book based off their song "Jesus Freak". Members, Michael, Toby and Keven each had a part in contributing to the book.

    In the book, short stories are shared of various individuals as they have often suffered tragedy for standing for their Christian faith. The stories are shared of various Bible characters, as well as individuals from time moving forward up until about 2018. These stories are sometimes hard, but also challenging and inspirational. At the end of the book, there is a listing of hostile and restricted countries in the world today.

    Jesus Freaks is eye opening, sometimes difficult to read, but also inspiring. It highlights the ramifications of being a Christian in the world today. I appreciated both the stories of the past and the recent stories. I was given a free copy from the publisher for my honest review, which I was happy to do. I would recommend the valuable and honest book.

    My son read the original version of this book and, to my knowledge, he still possesses it. I received this book from the publisher for my honest review and opinion.

    A Jesus Freak is one who is willing to for Jesus no matter what. As I read each of the stories they would lead me to reflect if I would do whatever it takes for my faith in Jesus. Would I be willing to lay down my life for Him? This is such a powerful book I believe each of the stories should be read and thought about. This makes it a book I would recommend to the highest level.

    I am so glad that this book was revised. Thank you to Bethany House for providing me this book and thank you to dc Talk and The Voice of the Martyrs for being willing to bring this book back.

    I had read the 1999 version of this book, but it really helped going through it again. It made me think: Would I be willing, with the option of living by denying Christ or dying because I am His follower - would I be strong enough? There are many stories here, but true stories, that show unwavering faith in Christ and being willing to die for Him. And they do - every day. It makes me wonder about my faith. So I can say this is a very good book, in that it has me thinking what I would do in the same situation. If I am not ready to make the right decision, I need to make myself right. Thank you dc Talk and Voice of the Martyrs for bring this back out again.

    This release of Jesus Freaks came out for sale October 27, 2020.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.

    What an outstanding book! Every Christian needs to read this! When I saw this book was available for review I immediately jumped at the opportunity. I own and have read VOM's Hearts of Fire and I admire this ministry immensely. I'm also a fan of dc Talk so this was a bonus. In this new and updated edition of Jesus Freaks, you will read about 100 (just my rough estimation) stories of radical, sold-out Christians who either gave up their lives or suffered persecution and hardships because of Jesus. These faithful Christian testimonies will give strength to thousands more who are persecuted daily and convict those of us in the west to a genuine devoted life to Christ.

    Each testimony is between 2-6 pages long with a verse at the end of each. I have cried, smiled, and prayed while reading these amazing stories of absolute surrender to God. It also contains a list of countries at the end where Christians are persecuted or are hostile toward believers, I will be adding these to my prayer list. It has 3 different indices at the end making it easier to look up specific stories.

    I was surprised by how beautiful this book is, it is very well designed and looks very deluxe. The cover is a glossy blue and black, the letters look like they are engraved, the dc Talk logo looks very cool, it has French flaps and it has deckled edges which I love. All in all, I love this book and would recommend to everyone!

    I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

    Jesus Freaks is written by the music group DC talk and the Voice of the Martyrs. Voice of the Martyrs. is an organization that was started by Richard Wurmbrand. He was imprisoned for his faith for 14 years in Communist Romania. The book has stories from the past and present of persecuted Christians. It is important for Christians to know about those who have been persecuted and are persecuted . It helps us know how we can pray for the persecuted church. It also helps us to not take our freedoms for granted. It is wonderful this book is being reprinted. The stories take place in areas like Sudan, Jordan and other places in the world. I commend the authors for making this book possible. Thank you to netgalley, the author and the publisher for allowing me to read and review this book. The opinions are my own.
