New book: Persecution: Global Assault on Christians


Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea are all connected in various roles to the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, Washington, D.C. In March 1913 they published a book with the title Persecuted. the Global Assault on Christians (416 pages).

Persecuted has been reviewed in e.g. The Blaze, who writes:

“As Western Christians pray for the future of Christ’s church, it’s vital they understand a large part of the world’s Christian believers live in danger. Persecuted gives documented accounts of the persecution of Christians in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and former Soviet nations. It contains vivid stories of men and women who suffer abuse because of their faith in Jesus Christ, and tells of their perseverance and courage. – 

Persecuted is far more than a thorough and moving study of this global pattern of violence—it is a cry for freedom and a call to action.” – Read the full review here.

The review by Thomas Nelson says:  

“Many Americans do not understand that Christians today are victims in many parts of the world. Even many Western Christians, who worship and pray without fear of violent repercussions, are unaware that so many followers of Christ live under governments and among people who are often openly hostile to their faith. They think martyrdom became a rarity long ago. – 

Persecuted soundly refutes these assumptions.” – Read more here.
