Prepare for Persecution

Fred Farrokh
The global church today faces significant challenges, even in lands once renowned for religious freedom. Pastors, leaders, and laypeople must navigate the following questions:

    • How should Christians respond to mandates by governments to close churches or limit attendance?
    • How can believers continue to witness for Christ in this Orwellian age of cancel culture, in which simply stating a biblical position can be deemed “hate speech”?
    • What sources of information are reliable in the face of mounting media dishonesty and anti-Christian propaganda?
    • When should Christians risk going to jail for what they believe?

Like the warning on some airplanes goes, “Your nearest way of escape may be behind you.” Beyond simply pointing a way of escape, Prepare for Persecution: Lessons from Acts guides today’s believers through the example of Jesus’ disciples. The early church overcame persecution again and again in the pages of the Acts of the Apostles—witnessing as they went, in the comfort and power of the Holy Spirit. This book chronicles nine key storylines of Acts. Each chapter concludes with “Applications for the Church Today” and “For Further Discussion,” making the book ideal for group Bible study.
