Living in the USA, I've never first-handedly witnessed much persecution for my faith; I've had the 'americanized' version of it (losing friends and reputation) but never have I been in any physical danger for it. So when I opened this book, I was woefully unaware of the state of the world when it came to Christianity. I never knew how dangerous it was to be a Jesus freak in other countries, and in that I never quite realized how worthy God is of the danger. This book resounds with faith in the middle of the fire, and a refusal to give up spiritual life in favour of physical life. I have yet to face this measure of persecution, but this book breathed into me personally an urgency to live as unashamedly of Christ as these people. This book strengthened my faith and resolve, and I DEFINITELY recommend it to anyone who is a Christian, period. Five out of five stars!
