Johnnie Moore, like many American Christians, didnt fully appreciate the extent of what was going on until he witnessed a graduation of seminary students in India. Unlike graduation ceremonies in Americawhere feel-good speeches made by visiting celebrities are featuredthis one featured a remarkable oath. It wasnt an oath to excel. It was an oath to be willing to die, if necessary, for the cause of Christ. This was no empty promise. A placard, next to the speakers platform, listed former graduates who had died for the Christian faith. At this graduation Johnnie knew he was witnessing a raw first-century Christianity his comfortable American Christianity had shielded him from. He and his team crisscrossed the world, recorders in hand, to gather reports from dozens of survivors of persecution to see what it means to live for the Jesus Christians around the globe are dying for. It was only then, after hearing their stories and being broken by what he saw, that he could dare to take the martyrs oath.
Join Johnnie Moore on this compelling journey to the heart of the Christian faith.

Kendra5 Stars Out Of 5InspiringOctober 23, 2017KendraQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Inspired by watching 2,000+ followers of Jesus in India take a martyr's oath, Johnnie Moore shares the eye-witness accounts of dozens of Christians who have experienced persecution for their faith. Moore uses lines from the martyr's oath as titles for each chapter, challenging the reader to a deeper, more committed faith. The stories of these faithful believers are heartbreaking and yet so very encouraging as over and over they testify to the sustaining power of God and the turning of unbelievers to Jesus.
Moore has devoted his life to advocacy for persecuted Christians. His passion comes through clearly, as the reader is repeatedly challenged to identify with and support the persecuted church. Another reason he tells these stories is to raise awareness and give perspective to what is happening in global Christianity. I think any believer will find this book inspiring.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review.
cheryl5 Stars Out Of 5The Cost Of Following JesusOctober 21, 2017cherylQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Martyrs Oath will challenge you and cause you to stop, think and inspire you to grow deeper in your faith and walk with Jesus. To walk alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ. Every day we are witnessing an astonishing escalation in Christian persecution like we have rarely seen since the first century. Like the stories in the book, we all need to start walking a life that Jesus expects us to, a life willing to die and gain for Christ. Jesus warns us that we will be persecuted for leading a life each day when we follow Him. He said that our lives should not be life of comfort, but of one that we need to listen Him.
Johnnie Moore, like many American Christians, didnt fully appreciate the extent of what was going on until he witnessed a graduation of theology students in India. Unlike graduation ceremonies here in America- where feel good speeches made by visiting celebrities are expected-this one featured a remarkable oath. It wasnt an oath to excel. It was an oath to be willing to die, if necessary for the cause of Jesus.
Each chapter is a first hand account of those who are truly ready to die for their faith in Jesus across the Middle East and Africa, but these are more than stories, they are life experiences of real people who faced torture, danger and sometimes death. Your faith will be challenged!
