Format: Paperback
"Their Blood Cries Out" (TBCO) is a masterfully written, meticulously researched, deeply compassionate and intellectually honest account of the persecution of millions of Christians around the world today. Marshall is careful to define a Christian as a person whose "Christian faith is a central aspect of their lives"(see Appendix D). Marshall has produced a much needed, up to date account of the suffering that is inflicted upon Christians today. TBCO surveys many countries and regions where persecution takes place, it examines the reasons and the causes of this persecution, and it tries to understand American (Western) apathy towards religious persecution. It is an honest, all round examination that informs, provokes and convicts.
TBCO is neatly divided into two independent sections: the first section is a global survey of countries where persecution takes place. The second part examines the reasons for the lack of interest in persecution and Marshall tries to come to an understanding of "why don¡¦t people care.¡¨
The first part of TBCO examines persecution in Islamic, communist, Hindu/Buddhist and Orthodox Christian countries. For each country covered, Marshall has carefully collated information and testimonials from easily verifiable sources. The book is well footnoted and his claims can be easily checked. This survey is an interesting investigation that is written with a deep sense of compassion and understanding. Marshall manages to avoid the pitfalls of gross generalizations and appropriately basis his work and conclusions on verifiable evidence. In writing this book, Marshall has traveled to about 20 of the countries he writes about.

Format: Paperback
We rarely hear in the news of religious persecution, let alone persecution of Christians. I am not Christian, but was still shocked, horrified and dismayed at all the injustice aimed at this population. Marshall covers briefly persecution of Muslims, Buddhists and others, and covers persecution by Christians as well - he limits his scope generally and intentionally to persecution of Christians in the 1990s, which sadly provides enough material for a full book. Marshall takes to task conservatives, liberals, secularists, evangelicals and anybody who has stood by silently in the face of these heinous acts. While there are a few inconsistencies in the book (such as his use of the terms liberal and conservative to refer alternatively to theology and politics, without distinugishing the usage) and the scope is limited, this book is a must read, since these problems are not covered in the mainstream media or the religious media (both of which Marshall takes to task for their failures). Marshall is right in wishing for freedom of religion and should be commended for pointing out places where it does not exist and where good people die simply due to their religious beliefs - you may not agree with what they think, but I don't see how you can disagree with their right to believe as they wish. Hopefully this book has encouraged and will encourage more action towards creating a more accepting and peaceful world.

Format: Paperback
In writing this book Paul Marshall counters the appalling ignorance and apathy that we in the West display toward the persecution of Christians in non-Western countries. The book is introduced by Michael Horowitz, a Jewish man who, as one might put it, finally shamed America's churches into acting on this issue. He compares the systematic destruction of Christians in the third world to the experiences of his own Jewish people, whose destruction was similarly ignored. He writes of "The silence and indifference of Western elites to the beatings, looting, torture, jailing, enslavement, murder, and even crucifixion of increasingly vulnerable Christian communities" and "The ignorance and silence displayed by Western Christian communities toward the suffering of fellow believers". Part I, "An International Lament", explores the persecution of Christians committed in the name of totalitarian, Islamic, Communist, and Christian causes. In Part II, "American Apathy", Marshall explains why both secularists and Christians in the West ignore many of the most pressing, systematic, and extreme human rights violations on earth. He concludes by outlining ways in which we can act on this issue. Marshall speaks out on behalf of persecuted Christians passionately and without apology. He focuses on Christian persecution in the wider context of human rights violations, mentioning many of the most pressing human rights violations against Muslims, Buddhists, and other religious groups. The book is thoroughly referenced and indexed in an academic style. The author's stories convey extensive worldwide personal contact, evidence of first-hand research to supplement his incisive analysis and documented historical and numerical data.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
It is hard to give a rating of this book. Its content is excellent - full of eye-opening information that will almost certainly be news for western people, Christian and non-Christian alike. Its style, unfortunately is somewhat flippant and uneven. Nonetheless, this does not detract from the fact that this book is a must read. It is news that no one hears.
