The Martyr’s Oath
By Johnnie Moore
Release Date: 10/10/17
Around the world, countless Christians are killed for their faith every year. Many more believers are kidnapped, jailed, tortured, robbed of their possessions, stripped of jobs and bank accounts, and ostracized from the mainstream of their cultures.
Moore and his team have collected the stories of those who have endured persecution and lost loved ones to martyrdom. The result is a book that is meant to inspire and challenge Christians to examine the depth of their commitment to Christ. Many of the heartbreaking stories included are from countries such as China, Iran, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Syria, and Kenya.
Although the lives of persecuted Christians include much suffering, Moore believes the complacency of many American Christians puts them in even greater spiritual danger. This book is a sobering reminder of what is at stake for those who follow Christ.
Readers are invited to take a “Martyr’s Oath,” which is included, that pledges to boldly proclaim the gospel whether “in abundance or need, in safety or peril, in peace or distress.”
