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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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!
