This book reveals truths, that the persecuted church has discovered, that most believers reading this post have never experienced. The persecuted church, as the authors stated, is God's gift to us in the West. Their understanding of God, their reverence for His Word, their dependence on prayer and worship, their daily immersion in the lives of their community, submission to authority, and tremendous generosity should humble us to adopt a spirit of learning. I encourage you to read this powerful book. It is eye-opening, life changing, and challenging.
