Additional Info
“My hope for all who read this volume,” writes the author, “is a strengthened faith. One of the most surprising aspects of studying persecution has been its effect on me. I thought I would be dour and woeful-defeated-after hearing of great suffering. The opposite is true. The gospel-with its resurrection power-is able to take the worst situations and reframe them in victory. Hearing stories of triumph through suffering has been nothing short of glorious. Studying persecution biblically has led to the same conclusion. The gospel is truly the power of God to salvation for all who believe. Studying persecution has encouraged stronger faith. My hope is that this book will have such an effect for you as you consider what the Scriptures teach about persecution.”
