I read this book many years ago when it first was published.
Sylvia K. Moore
This Kourdakov was truly a survivor, but also a witness to the power of God's amazing redemption in the life of every sinner who repents.
Aimee Thor
This will make you think twice before complaining about anything.

Reading this book sent shock waves down my spine. I usually don't upset very easily, but what the communist would do to innocent Christian people is so cruel it will make you sick. I loved to see this young man, Sergei, come to know Christ after all the atrocities he did. I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks that he has problems in life. This will make you think twice before complaining about anything.

Every time I read this book, I cry. I don't read it often because it shakes me up too badly. It makes you count your blessings. If you're feeling sorry for yourself over most any Western-level problem, Sergei's story is effective therapy! If you want a realistic view of life under communism, here it is. A must-read for those "enemies of the State" knows as "believers".

"The Persecutor" was one of the best books I have ever read! Totally outstanding detail that kept me going page after page. From his childhood, to him escaping to Cananda, Sergei Kourdokov took you on a trip to Russia, were life is hard and only the strong survive. This story was not only suspensful, but very moving and tragic. I recommend this book for those seeking spiritual revival or just to have a book to read again and again!

I could not put this amazing book down from the first page to the last it is a thriller, only with a heady spiritual twist! This Kourdakov was truly a survivor, but also a witness to the power of God's amazing redemption in the life of every sinner who repents. What a glorious testimony to the power of faith and prayer! A truly unforgettable story that will stick with me for the rest of my life.

In post 9/11 America, this is even more so a "must-read" for everyone. It reminds us of the mercy of God, the power of Christian witnessing, and the blessings we have in the United States to have freedom of religion. Find this book at a used book store. Read it. Then tell someone else about it. It needs to be back in print.

Format: Hardcover
This book is worth its weight in gold. Sergei is a cold-war era "Saul", converted to Paul, who gave his life for what he believed in. It is a tragedy that this book is out of print. Whoever holds the copyright on this book needs to get it republished immediately!

Definitely a 'must-read' on your list. A nice, sound, real-life story of a russian secret police with a brilliant future career infront of him. But Sergei seems to find the truth in him, and gets to know God in a way that any person would be delighted to read. He finds the necessary strenght, courage and conviction to fullfill his goals and becomes a catholic, after escaping to Canada. This excellent book is not only a true-story dramatic and interesting novel. It is a great way of understanding and realizing everything we have: health, family, a job, happiness, and God of course.

Format: Paperback
My high school religion teacher just finished reading this book to us yesterday. He read a chapter everyday for worship. It was absolutely amazing. It held the attention of every student until the last page. It really drove home the fact that as Americans we are fairly sheltered from the persecution many Chrisitians in the world face. we forget that Christians are the number one group of people that are persecuted in the world today.

Sergei tells his story in a way that puts you in his shoes. It doesn't come accross as something out of a history book. It really strikes deep into the heart. I would recommend this book to anyone who is old enough to understand the hardship and brutality many Christians are sometimes faced with.

My teacher only yesterday finished readin it to us and now I am going to go out and buy it so that everyone in my family can read it as well. I, myself can not wait to read it again!
