Despite having been trained himself under communism to view religion as deluded and evil, author Liao Yiwu's God is Red conveys the astonishing strength and vibrancy of Chinese Christians who have kept the faith alive over the past century, against unceasing, inhumane obstacles. Liao's collection of interviews with Chinese Christians, banned in China itself, is an inspiring testimony to a true faith few of us will ever have reason to live out. Prepare to be at once both heartbroken and inspired by the story of China's recent and modern history. You'll likely read this in one sitting, and won't be the same afterwards.
