Close to home. Oceans away. God's people are under attack-what's our Gospel response? Christians encounter hostility and subtle persecution in the United States. The Body of Christ faces open persecution in other parts of the world. History tells us that the Church has always felt the sting of objection and rejection. While our plea for deliverance isn't new, each passing century-and decade-brings diverse challenges that we're called to face. This book provides biblical perspectives to equip us for speaking about and living in the reality of persecution. In all circumstances, God promises to guide, use, and sustain us. That's a promise. Explore the answers to these questions: When does hostility spill over into persecution? How can examples from Scripture improve our understanding of persecution? What are God's priorities, and how do they motivate Christians? How does God support and encourage us during times of difficulty? Book jacket.
