1 Review
In many underprivileged countries, the church is under constant persecution. Christians everywhere have heard the stories and seen the newscasts. But there are too many who still don't understand. What does persecution really look like up close? And what can we learn from the faithful endurance persecuted Christians so boldly embody? Ronald Boyd-MacMillan, writer-at-large for Open Doors International, has produced the most compelling and comprehensive look at Christian persecution today. With real life stories, he educates readers on the many levels of church persecution, highlights testimonies that have never before been published, and shows what we all can do to remember, reflect, and respond. Compassionate and provocative, Faith That Endures gives readers a path of connection to their persecuted brothers and sisters in a new and vital way, even as it enlightens and encourages us in our local churches and brings us closer to God.

About the author (2006)

Ronald Boyd-MacMillan (M.Div., Fuller Theological Seminary) has more than twenty-one years of experience interacting with the persecuted church as a researcher, minister, and journalist. He began serving with Open Doors International in 1982 and has worked as the associate director of research for Eastern Europe, the Asia bureau chief for News Network International, and the Asia bureau Chief of Compass Direct, the only news agency in the world dedicated exclusively to reporting the plight of persecuted Christians worldwide. He is now writer-at-large for Open Doors International and resides in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Brother Andrew began his work in 1955 as a one-man mission--visiting, teaching, and taking Bibles to Christians behind the Iron Curtain. That work has since developed into Open Doors International, a nondenominational organization with bases around the world. When not traveling, Brother Andrew makes his home in the Netherlands.
