Christians encounter hostility and subtle persecution in the U.S. and face open persecution in other parts of the world. We are called to turn the other cheek, but in what other ways would God have us respond? This book provides biblical perspectives to help understand the challenge of persecution and how God promises to guide, use, and sustain us.

  • The biblical perspective on hostility and persecution
  • How God would have us respond
  • Recent trends of hostility and persecution toward Christians in the U.S. and worldwide
  • Positive options for a response reflecting the Gospel and life under God’s grace

Learn the answers to questions like these:

  • What kinds of hostility do Christians encounter?
  • When does hostility spill over into persecution?
  • What are the underlying roots found in sin, spiritual warfare, and opposition to Christ?
  • How can examples from Scripture improve our understanding of persecution?
  • What are God’s priorities, and how does that motivate Christians?
  • How does God support and encourage us during times of difficulty?
  • How can we respond?

This book is excellent and a big help in thinking through these important issues. The extra resources outlined at the end provide even more to explore. So, so much to consider and how critical that we prayerfully do so.

Standing Firm

This book is an excellent resource especially during this period of uncertainty in our world. I found information that I did not know and it is useful in how I relate to individuals that are not of a Christian faith, whether they be atheists, Muslims, Buddhists or any other faith or religion, especially with those who may want to persecute Christians and Americans, or other nationalities for that matter. This is a book that you just cannot hurriedly read or skim through. It is information that needs to be digested and thoroughly thought through. A great read for any Christian.
