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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
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.|Bob Fu is a former dissident and pastor of an illegal underground church in China. He and his wife, Heidi, escaped prison and fled to the United States as religious refugees in 1997. He currently runs ChinaAid (ChinaAid.org), a nonprofit organization that tirelessly advocates for the underground church in China and for political dissidents, as well as for the lawyers and activists who place their lives on the line to defend them.
Bob is a distinguished professor of religion and public policy at Midwest University and a research PhD candidate at Durham University, UK. In addition to being the China analyst for Voice of the Martyrs, Bob is editor-in-chief of Chinese Law and Religion Monitor and guest editor for Chinese Law and Government, a journal of UCLA. He received the 2007 John Leland Religious Liberty Award from the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC). In 2012, Midwest University awarded Bob the Honorary Doctorate Degree on Global Leadership.
He currently lives with his wife and their three children in Midland, Texas.

But his spiritual life is the true story. Having never heard of God or Jesus, he is given a book which transforms his life as he accepts Jesus
Christ as his Lord and Savior. He is totally changed and becomes an evangelist at great risk.
After being imprisoned for his beliefs, he marries Heidi, his sweetheart. When she becomes pregnant without permission from the government, they realize they must flee for their lives or the government would force an abortion.
Their escape is a miracle in itself.
Many miracles, and answers to prayer guide them first to Thailand, then Hong Kong where their child is born.
Bob is today living with his family in Midland, Texas where he heads CHINA AID, a non-profit organization which works in China rescuing and providing legal representation for Christians of all ages and walks of life whose lives are in danger.
He met personally with President George Bush, who has supported his efforts.
This book is almost impossible to put down and a perfect read for a book club.
I met Bob at a conference and, while he was humble and friendly and certainly didn't put on airs, I felt very small in his presence because I knew I was in the presence of greatness. Read this book and relive with him the unmitigated tragedies of China's cultural revolution, heart-pounding escapes and the weight of responsibility he took on once safely in the United States for those left behind in China.
The belief that God places leaders in their position requires great faith, and how he dealt with world leaders was insightful and a good role model for Christians and non-Christian. Courage doesn't need a label, but Bob Fu's faith transcends the need to have anything but Biblical faith.
