HASH(0x964c5e04) out of 5 stars Good for Russian church history, not so good for secrets of surviving persecution 26 Nov. 2015
By Rocket City Jill - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book has a subtitle "What Christians Today would survive persecution?" I expected a book telling me their secrets on how the Russians survived. It has a few of those, like don't drink or smoke before, poverty makes persecution easier, get used to denying yourself, expect to suffer, and avoid entertainment. However, it's not easy to find the secrets in the book. You have to infer most of them, they aren't generally plainly stated..

The authors state the Russian believers believed that one couldn't be a believer in the city. It may be harder than on a farm or in a rural setting but I know of no verses in the Bible that would support such a view. The book also has a no weapons or fighting belief. No verses were given for this belief or any others mentioned in the book.

It is an excellent book on persecution of Russian believers and church history of that. The authors start about 900 AD and go up to the 1960s. The authors give many stories of individual believers. I wish the authors had given more information on how the believers avoided the KGB finding them. They did mention going into the woods but for city believers that isn't going to be a possibility.

Overall, very interesting history but not as practical as the title implies.

HASH(0x966b6db0) out of 5 stars Christ in you, the hope of glory. 16 Dec. 2008
By Shaun B. Giese - Published on
Format: Paperback
Peter does a wonderful and historic job of showing the suffering body of Christ in Russia over hundreds of years. He shows the victorious church as it battles the 'state/church' institution, all for its Lord, Christ.
