Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Bob Fu may not be a household name, but he’s often the man behind the headline-making stories of Chinese dissidents leaving the mainland. Most recently, he lobbied the U.S. and other Western governments to assist blind-activist Chen Guangcheng, who, in a harrowing tale, managed to escape house arrest and elude Chinese authorities before seeking refuge in the U.S. embassy in Beijing. Fu, like the dissidents he’s helped, fled mainland China nearly 20 years ago. This book recounts his own harrowing tale of persecution for, among other things, leading a group of fellow university students to join the protests in Tiananmen Square and, after embracing Christianity, attending an underground church. After settling in the U.S., Fu started ChinaAid, an organization that provides legal assistance and support to pastors, political dissidents, and couples resisting China’s one-child policy. Not simply an inspiring tale of someone with the courage to risk everything for his beliefs, this book is a reminder that religious persecution not only persists in the world today but is at times a matter of state policy. --Christopher McConnell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

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.

Bob Fu wanted to help his desperately poor family and village and was a top student. He became a student leader in college, desiring for a career to make money for his family. He saw corruption everywhere and then worked for Tiananmen Square protests. He was devastated with the results. When under "college house" arrest and not wanting to live, he was given the book about Xi Zizhi, who had tried every philosophy and religion and finally turned to Jesus. Reading that book was the turning point for Bob Fu as he saw Truth, and he became a changed man, wanting to live, willing to have nothing and take on a "double identity" in order to share his faith. He taught classes for communist leaders in the day while he shared his faith at night. The government was threatened by his faith and he ended up in prison. He and his family escaped. But his story doesn't end there as even now in 2013, he is dedicated to help others who are tortured and imprisoned in China. Much goes on behind closed doors that seem like a horror movie but are real even today. This book stirred my heart and opened my eyes in a huge way.

Pastor Fu tells his fascinating story in a simple way, like you are sitting across the table from him drinking tea together. His unlikely path from the destitute Chinese countryside and then Beijing to the windy roads of a Texas oil town and the offices of DC has had many twists and turns - many due to a passionate desire to tangibly help others, a desire often expressed in creative ways. Wonderful book to read and to share!

My husband and I had a hard time setting this book down. The life journey story is compelling, the faith is inspirational and the love for the people of China is clear. The persecuted church has so much to teach us. I was particularly struck by the teaching of the elderly pastor who taught the couple, "If you want to be a faithful minister and follower of Jesus in China, you should learn prison theology....In prison you find out more about God and His faithfulness than anywhere else. Jail is where God prepares His church in China."

Bob Fu is a Christian. A Christian in China is so unlike a Christian in America as to be almost unrecognizable. This is a story of torture, beatings (including little children), forced abortions and sterilizations. It is also a story of God-incidents and miracles. Hard to put down.

If you have ever questioned whether God is real and at work in the world around you, then do yourself a favour and pick up a copy of "God's Double Agent". Bob Fu's account of his childhood and his path to becoming a follower of Jesus in the midst of communist China is absolutely riveting, and will leave you pondering your own dedication to God. It would be impossible to walk away from this book and not weigh the cost of following Christ, when you learn of the plight of millions of Chinese Christians who spend time in jail and who are brutally persecuted for their faith, and who still praise the name of Jesus! The book is very well-written, and reads more like a fiction book than an autobiography in that the chapters are full of action and drama, romance and suspense. But the best part of this book is that it is a true account, such that instead of just wishing that the characters are real, like in fiction novels, readers can know that these men and women are real. Through the pages of this story, readers will grow to genuinely care about Bob Fu and his wife Heidi, and see that they are not pretending to be perfect, but struggle with the same things you and I do. Bob and Heidi demonstrate the power of relying on God to set the course of your future, and submitting to His will for your life. Yet they also remind us that we are in s spiritual war, and we must also play a role in fighting for the freedom of men and women and children to be free from persecution. "God's Double Agent" will not only stir your faith, but call you to take action as well. It is a book that everyone should read!

I highly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.

Met Bob Fu last year and had hoped to learn more of his story. The courage of this man is inspiring, but the courage came from his faith in God. When he prayed, he was audacious enough to expect an answer. Shouldn't we all.
The belief that God places leaders in their position requires great faith, and how he dealt with world leaders was insightful and a good role model for Christians and non-Christian. Courage doesn't need a label, but Bob Fu's faith transcends the need to have anything but Biblical faith.
