"Persecuted and Forgotten?"
ACN Report on Christians oppressed for their faith 2007/2008
Largely unknown to the outside world, Christians today suffer physical and verbal abuse, imprisonment and even murder. In the last few years, acts of persecution have suddenly escalated. More Christians are persecuted than any other religious group.
Focusing on nearly 30 countries including China, Iraq, Sudan and Zimbabwe, Persecuted and Forgotten? shows the reality of life for people denied the freedoms many of us take for granted.
Drawing on the very latest research and first-hand accounts, the book bears testimony to the heroic struggle of so many people determined to remain true to their Christian faith.
Religious liberty as a fundamental human right is being neglected by world public opinion, above all by politicians and the media. And yet religious liberty is one of the most vital preconditions for democracy. You will find no better summary about your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who are persecuted for their faith. Please pray for them.
