Hello everyone I hope you are having a blessed day, today I am coming to you with a book review.The book is called: Bearing Witness Edited by Charles E. Moore and Timothy Keiderling , I received this book for free for my honest opinion from FlyByPromotions and Plough Publishing House.
About Bearing Witness: Stories of Martyrdom and Costly Discipleship
From the stoning of Stephen in the first-century Jerusalem to Nigerian Christians persecuted by Boko Haram in 2015, these stirring accounts will inspire greater faithfulness to the way of Jesus, reminding believers what costly discipleship looks like in any age. Bearing Witness brings together dozens of accounts from around the world of Christians who gave witness to their faith in the face of intense persecution, even if it costs them their lives.
In selecting stories for this book, the editors focused on Anabaptist martyrs and others who suffered for their commitment to believer’s baptism and nonviolence.

There are a lot of scriptures in the bible that talks about different people in the bible that dealt with persecution and in there lives. And there is one that really stood out when I read this book, I think of the scripture John 16:33 (NKJV) These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation(persecution); but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
When you read the stories of these people all around there world and how they dealt with being persecuted because of there love of Jesus. I feel like I've have been persecuted as well even by my own family and to hear what these people have been through, what i have went through hasn't been anything. This book is a must read for all christian because it lets us know of some things we might face because we are a follower and lovers of Jesus.
