Recommended Reading #2

As a follow up to my first post on recommended reading, I would like to add several more books that have been a help to me as I endeavour to learn more about the persecuted Church.

God's Smuggler by Brother Andrew is an awesome story of how God used one Dutch man to smuggle many Bibles behind the Iron Curtain.

After Brother Andrew's first book, God's Smuggler, was published, he could not go back into the many countries that were under Communist rule because he would endanger the Christians. He then asked God to give him a new field of work and God opened up the Middle East. You can read about the continuing story of this brave soldier in Light Force.

Have you ever wondered what happens to Muslims once the find Christ as their Savior? Well, you can read about it in Secret Believers. This is Brother Andrew's latest book that will show you how Muslims-background-believers (MBBs) live their life in Christ when converting from Islam is a crime punishable with death.

The Heavenly Man is the remarkable story of Brother Yun. God used Brother Yun to awake many souls in Communist China and he tells his story in the books coauthored with Paul Hattaway.

Many people know that life isn't easy for Christians in China, but did you know that there is one country that people escape from into China that is worse? Escape from North Korea is the true story of one families escape from "the Hermit kingdom" and then of their conversion in China.

If you have read any books about persecution of Christians that I have not mentioned in these two posts, please tell me about them by leaving a comment. I am always looking for books of this nature.
