Be Inspired by Amazing Eyewitness Stories of Hope and Courage from the Persecuted Church
We are witnessing an astonishing escalation in Christian persecution like we have rarely seen since the first century. Some estimate that every five minutes, a Christian is martyred for his or her faith. Countries like Egypt have experienced more Christian persecution in the last five years than in the previous six hundred years combined. And who could have missed the atrocities of ISIS in Syria, Boko Haram in Nigeria, and the continued persecution of Christians in North Korea?
Johnnie Moore, like many American Christians, didnt fully appreciate the extent of what was going onuntil he witnessed the graduation of theology students in India. Unlike graduation ceremonies in Americawhere feel-good speeches made by visiting celebrities are commonthis one featured a remarkable oath. It wasnt an oath to excel or succeed. It was an oath to be willing to die, if necessary, for the cause of Christ. This was no empty promise. This was a choice, choosing the eternal over the temporal.
Johnnie knew he was witnessing a raw, first-century Christianity that his comfortable American version had shielded him from. For the first time, I really understand my faith, says Johnnie Moore. Now, hes on a mission to give this same experience to others. He and his team have crisscrossed the world, recorders in hand, gathering eyewitness accounts from dozens of people who survived persecutionand the stories of some who didnt.
Join Johnnie Moore on this compelling journey to the heart of the Christian faith.
