From Asia to Africa, from the Middle East to Europe and beyond, the global persecution of Christians becomes more ominous with every passing year. Heroic Faith takes a close look at the tragic circumstances Christians face due to dangerous and sometimes deadly opposition to their faith in Jesus Christ. The book’s true stories of courage, persistence and faithfulness offer inspiration and hope. Heroic Faith also provides insights into the ideologies that lie behind hostility and persecution, what steps the U.S. government might take to offer assistance, and how readers can best respond to the struggles of the faithful.
