By Paul Mastin TOP 1000 REVIEWER on March 4, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition
When I grumble about getting up on Sunday and getting my family to church, I need to think about my brothers and sisters in the Middle East for whom simply having a Bible study at home is a death sentence. When I complain about government policies or social norms in the US that are biased against Christians, I need to remember my brothers and sisters who are given the choice of converting to Islam or being killed. In Killing Christians: Living the Faith Where It's Not Safe to Believe, Tom Doyle reminds us that even though being a Christian in the West is quite comfortable, the church is suffering persecution. Our family is under attack.

I read the stories in Killing Christians like a family album. I've never met these family members, but I feel like I know them now. I grieve with them in their suffering, but more than that, I am amazed and inspired by their joy and perseverance in the face of persecution. Doyle writes the stories in the style of fiction, and he acknowledges that some of the conversations have been reconstructed and some descriptions have been modified, but these are real people in real places facing real persecution and martyrdom. I personally like his decision to write in this style. Historians may object, but I'm reading a family account here, not a history text.

Doyle focuses on the region in which he works, North Africa and the Middle East, so the persecution faced in Killing Christians comes from Muslims. I know there are peaceful Muslims in parts of the world, and there are plenty of places where Christians and Muslims live in harmony. These are not those Muslims, and these are not those places.

Tom Doyle, author, missionary and Middle East director of "e3 Partners" asks if you "could retain your faith even if it meant losing your life" in his March release, Killing Christians. America is unfamiliar with Christian persecution on this scale or a social climate that prompts such a question. However Muslims in Africa, Iraq, Syria and other Middle Eastern countries know the cost to themselves and their loved ones when they say "yes" to these questions. "Are you willing to suffer for Jesus?" "Are you willing to die for Jesus?"

They know if their underground churches are exposed, if loved ones turn them in or they are caught witnessing they face sadistic torture, profound suffering and death. Persecution and torture are so common Muslim converts define it as "momentary light affliction” because "they choose faith over survival."

The survivors you read about in these true stories have "endured the unendurable" and live lives "worthy of recognition and respect" in spite of terrifying circumstances. Stories end with an update and a "message" from survivors. The narratives are real. Locations and names have been modified or changed.

For example, Azzam Azziz Mubarak had "seven visions about the man who called himself Jesus." He didn’t know him, yet recognized his voice. When he talked to his mother she told him to "Leave and don't come back." Azzam's journey began "in a coffin under a corpse."
Farid Assid lived in Damascus and dreamed of a white-robed man who said to "Follow Me." He was supernaturally led to ten others with similar visions and they gathered secretly to learn about Jesus, read Scripture and worship.

Each chapter is a different story in a different place. Each story I was amazed at how our brothers and sisters in these countries are so on fire for Jesus and in turn their stories has encouraged me to be more bold in my own walk here at home. Since I finished the book on Saturday I have talked to everyone I have come across about this book....even my Pastor! He had not heard of the book, obviously, the book just came out last week! :) So this morning as I was driving to work I thought of the people I spoke with and The Lord impressed on me to buy this book for them.....and so I will!!
Cannot wait to read Tom Doyle's other book about Dreams and in the meantime I just want to say that I have set up my alarm to go off at 8:38pm every night and last night for the first time I prayed for my brothers and sisters in the Middle East and Somalia. Loved this book!

Overwhelmingly powerful! If you are awakened by your own or others encounters with Jesus, you will be lifted to the heavens by these accounts. These stories of new "heroes of the faith" represent the myriad of Muslims finding Jesus. Anyone searching for spiritual meaning in life will want to look here.

Reading this book has been a blessing. We've come away with a keener understanding of what it means for a Muslim to meet Christ Jesus and trust him. Our prayers for our brother's and sister's in Christ who live in the Middle East have changed. It is beautiful and powerful the learn that Jesus shows himself in dreams and visions to his suffering saints. These personal accounts have enlightened us to the power of Jesus to seek and to save his children in the midst of extreme evil. 'Killing Christians' has stirred our hearts with love, understanding and opened our minds to the modern day suffering of these dear saints. Every Christian should read this book for the identity to be gained from the life and death of persecuted saints. We are called to serve Christ in life and we are called to serve him in death.
