Wow. Powerful. Moving. Heart-wrenching. Eye-Opening. Educational. Beyond Suspenseful. Must Share!
These are just a few of the words and phrases that come to mind when I think of this book. To say it was suspenseful would be an understatement. Truly a book I could not put down until I was finished.
I highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in opening up their worldview and understanding what's really going on in the world around us. The story was so compelling - it felt as if the author, Alana Terry, must be writing a memoir.
Have you felt your heart hurt for those facing persecution but felt you could never fully comprehend it? Yet you desperately wanted to understand and know how to pray? Look no further. This is a strong voice for the persecuted church and a great educational resource for anyone willing to open their hearts and minds.
If you do have a heart for the persecuted church, take time to learn more about, The Voice of the Martyrs. It's a wonderful organization who puts a voice, face and name to those standing for their faith around the world. They not only tell their stories, but they support them in a variety of ways.
