Jesus Freaks by dc Talk and The Voice of the Martyrs, is a companion volume to dc Talk's album of the same name. It is a book for teenagers about martyrdom, containing dozens of profiles of figures ranging from Stephen, whose martyrdom is described in the Book of Acts, to "Anila and Perveen," two teenage Pakistani girls and Christian believers. In 1997, Perveen was killed for running away in order to avoid marrying a Muslim man; Anila was imprisoned for helping her friend escape. In an introduction to the book, Michael Tait explains its purpose: "In a world built on free will instead of God's will, we must be the Freaks. While we may not be called to martyr our lives, we must martyr our way of life. We must put our selfish ways to death and march to a different beat. Then the world will see Jesus." The book's design is hip and easy to read, and its summary of Christian persecutions that continue today is useful--and frightening.
"A call to be extreme... dc Talk hope to stir modern-day Christians with stories of early Christian martyrdom." -- New Man Magazine, Nov/Dec 1999
"Amazing true stories of Christians who would not compromise or apologize for their faith in Jesus." -- Breakaway Magazine

My son and I are reading this and both of us are challenged to assess how warm our faith truly is.
OPPOSITE of a broken heart I was SO encouraged and empowered by the awesome recounting of these wonderful brothers and sisters.
I am back now to buy multiple copies as gifts for friends. I also have Sister Freaks and Promises For Jesus Freaks.... highly recommend both of those, too. I am getting multiple copies of all three to give away to fellow Christians.
I can not recommend this book highly enough.
