In Killing Christians: Living the Faith Where It’s Not Safe to Believe, Tom Doyle takes his readers to Muslims-turned-Christians in Egypt, Saudi-Arabia, Iraq, the UAE, Gaza, Syria, and Lebanon. The suffering Jesus Christ promised that would be part of following Him, is experienced first-hand. And while some are martyred, others are miraculously protected in order to spread the gospel further among Muslims.
The depth and proximity of having to give up your life to Christ, physically, not spiritually, may be unimaginable to most Western Christians that live in countries with freedom of religion. Countless dreams in which Jesus shows Himself to Muslims, and God answering prayers are means to stir people to devote themselves to Jesus Christ and become a follower of the Way. The blood of martyrs are the seed of the Church, in the first centuries CE as well as the 21st century.
Where the recent testimonies in this book of real people in real situations can bless you as a reader, Doyle also challenges you to bless your fellow believers in Muslim countries through a daily prayer for those who, because of their faith in Christ, are in prison, persecution, or danger.
