Many Americans view the persecuted church as "third-world," needy, uneducated,
and poor -- sorely lacking in much of what we assume the church needs to function
well. Essentially, we see them as being in need of us. The irony, say Carl Moeller
and David Hegg, is that we're in much greater need of them.
Through a combination
of inspiring real-life stories, first-hand experiences, and exposition of key Scripture
passages, Dr. Carl Moeller and Pastor David Hegg examine the "normal Christian life"
of Christ-followers currently suffering persecution around the world. In topical
chapter after chapter, the authors conclude that the suffering church's vibrant,
sacrificial, and communal faith is much closer to God's intent for His people.
authors reveal specific attitudes and actions of the suffering church that can renew
the spiritual lives of Christians in the West. Each chapter ends with challenging
questions and suggestions for personal and corporate application.
