Book Review: Persecuted by Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea
This book is about the global assault on Christians—up-to-date information on persecution of Christians from around the globe.
If you think Christians are not persecuted, not tortured, not imprisoned, not killed for their faith today, in the twenty-first century, you are sadly mistaken. This book details much of what is happening on this topic all over the world. It is thorough with over 314 pages of text and hundreds of documenting footnotes in 62 pages of notes.
It includes the definitions of persecution and Christian and the “whys” behind much of the persecution.
This book includes good overviews of what is happening in over thirty countries, country by country, with real-life stories. The overviews contain useful information especially for intercessors or missionaries or those who support missionaries. The stories make it real, so that you can picture it in your mind and really relate to it. You won’t find even a fraction of this information or these stories on your typical news stations.
It ends with a chapter on a call to action with practical things that any “ordinary” American Christian can do to help.
If you are ignorant on what is really going on in the world on this topic, are an intercessor, or called to be a missionary or to support one, then this book is for you.
