This book was inspiring to say the least. How many times do we hear stories of persecution and think of them as just that stories? Or just something that happened in the past? These real life stories are happening right now in different countries around the world. This book will inspire you to stand for your faith, and to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters around the world each and every day. So many times, we as Americans take our freedom of religion for granted. This book reminded me of the great freedom I have to not only go to church and worship without fear of being arrested, but just owning a Bible is a luxury in some of these countries, and can also be cause for being arrested. Don't take that freedom for granted! There are people who want to take that freedom away. I highly recommend this book. I love how it puts you right there like you are the one talking to these persecuted Christians. I love the encouragement at the end of each entry as well.
