Inter-Varsity Press Daughters of Hope: Stories of Witness and Courage in the Face of Persecution

There are places in this world - dark places - where Christianity is a capital offense. In America we live without persecution, or at least without the type of persecution that is currently being experienced by countless brothers and sisters in other countries. Faithful witnesses, even when faced with death, stand in our place all over the world, and this books tells the story of the mothers, wives, sisters and daughters caught up in the real drama that has been the reality of Christianity outside of America and Europe.

India, China, Indonesia, North Korea. These are some of the most dangerous places to live if you are a Christian, and (due to many factors) Christian women are in a much worse position. These stories are harsh reminders of both the blessing of living in a country where persecution happens only very rarely and that these atrocities are still happening on a daily basis around the world. This book will give faces and voices to the sometimes invisible victims and guide you in supporting these and other Christian women as they struggle to live out their Christian witness in a world that desperately needs Christ.

This book's riveting accounts of women who suffer persecution for the Lord's sake are both heart-rending and convicting. The best aspect of the book, I believe, is that it gives both prayer points & action points so that we can be involved with women all over the world who prove their love for the Lord by willingly sacrificing everything for Him.
