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

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.
