Review: God’s Double Agent
Author: Bob Fu w/ Nancy French
Short Book Description:
God’s people are hiding in plain sight
Tens of millions of Christians live in China today, leading double lives to hide from a government that relentlessly persecutes them.
By day, Bob Fu was a teacher in a communist school; by night, he was a preacher in an underground house church network. This edge-of-your-seat book tells the true story of Fu’s conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape, and his subsequent rise to prominence in the United States as an advocate for his oppressed brethren.
God’s Double Agent will inspire you to boldly proclaim and live out your faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times murderously hostile, to those who spread the gospel.
This book was both heartbreaking and up-lifting at the same time.
The stories with in this book were heartbreaking because stuff like the things told in this book shouldn’t happen to people in countries that say they have the ‘Freedom of Religion’. The people mentioned in this book went through so much because of what they believed in. They were persecuted and tortured to the extreme and at times executed for believing in Jesus and becoming Christians.
It brought tears to my eyes at times and made me realize how slack ‘American Christians’ are in they’re Christianity. We don’t seem to realize that living a Christian life is hard and at times life taking, not a bed of red roses or whatever other flower you prefer.
This book was also up-lifting as it told of miracles happening. God does still answer the prayers of his children and sends little, or large, miracles to them to show that He is there and that He does care.
I really hope that you decide to read this book. You won’t regret it, I know I didn’t. You will be encouraged and be brought to tears as you read the stories of Chinese Christians who still don’t have absolute freedom to worship as they want.
