Eight women from eight very different backgrounds. Yet the struggles they each faced rang with eerie similarity. These courageous women from across the globe-Pakistan, India, Romania, Former Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, Nepal, Indonesia-shared similar experiences of hardship, subjugation, and persecution, all because of their faith in Christ. Yet all of these women have emerged from adversity as leaders and heroines.
The eight modern-day pilgrims featured in Hearts of Fire are the hidden jewels in the church universal. They are worthy role models of faith and passion, and women of every age will gain new strength and hope for their own times of crisis and trial as they read these inspiring stories. Each story concludes with thoughtful self-reflection questions for the reader.

It truly sparks a fire in the heart of the reader, the desire to do more for the Kingdom of God. You can feel the moving of the Holy Spirit while reading each story. Gods love and faithfulness has been reavealed in these women. As a believer in priviledged America, I am ashamed to be so blind about the persecution of my brothers and sisters overseas. I had some knowledge of it, but this book has opened up my eyes on the issue to a whole new level.

I shared this book on Facebook, urging others to read it. Here's my post: Voice of the Martyrs: this book is something I encourage everyone to read it. It will open your eyes about those who suffer for Christ. It will open your eyes to other religions who persecuted Christians (Islam, Hindu, Buddhism and various other tribal beliefs). It will rewrite your heart and soul and show you the true meaning of following Christ.
Even though these testimonies will span the decades, you will see similarities to today's culture and society as it were decades ago.
Instead of spending your money on a cola and junk food or even that lazy day when you purchase fast food; put off buying that shirt or shoes; take a small portion (only $12) out of your vacation fund; make a sacrifice and buy this book.
Don't be afraid to have your heart rewritten by God. This is one book that will give you hope and faith.
What more can I say than that? Sure I could break this down, talk about excerpts that stood out in my mind, and other virtues, but it would never be enough. What I posted on Facebook say it all: it will rewrite your heart and strengthen your hope and faith.
Child of God5 Stars Out Of 5PersecutionFebruary 25, 2017Child of GodQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I read this book when it came out, and could not put it down. It is an eye opener for those of us who do not live in a country that does not allow Christ or his word. This book is inspirational, and shows what devotion to Christ looks like and can be like for those who are his, thru faith. From this book, I have become more aware of the Persecuted Church & support it.

Eight women endure beatings, kidnappings, and imprisonment without forsaking their vow to Christ and without divulging names or locations of other believers. The countries were differentIndonesia, Bhutan, Russia, Romania, Pakistan, China, India, and Vietnamand the time periods differ, but each womans story is similar, heart-rending, and yet, so inspiring. Their faith, devotion and conviction, amid extreme persecution challenge Christians who are yet free to worship and have access to the Word without fear of punishment. Their stories will convict any complacency or lack of gratitude for blessings and freedoms taken for granted. This is a book well worth reading. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
Debbie5 Stars Out Of 5October 23, 2008DebbieVery good book. One all Christians, especially women, should read. It always encourages me to read of women who kept their faith at times when many of us would have been angry with God. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to other volumes in the future.
