Could you retain your faith even if it meant losing your life? Your family's lives? To many Christians in the Middle East today, a "momentary, light affliction" means enduring only torture instead of martyrdom. The depth of oppression Jesus followers suffer is unimaginable to most Western Christians. Yet, it is an everyday reality for those who choose faith over survival in Syria, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, and other countries hostile to the Gospel of Christ. In Killing Christians, Tom Doyle takes readers to the secret meetings, the torture rooms, the grim prisons, and even the executions that are the "calling" of countless Muslims-turned-Christians. Each survivor longs to share with brothers and sisters "on the outside" what Christ has taught them. Killing Christians is their message to readers who still enjoy freedom to practice their faith. None would wish their pain and suffering on those who do not have to brave such misery, but the richness gained through their remarkable trials are delivered--often in their own words--through this book. The stories are breathtaking, the lessons soul-stirring and renewing. Killing Christians presents the dead serious work of expanding and maintaining the Faith. "When you're looking for real-life accounts of 21st Century believers whose lives are literally at stake for their beliefs, it demands the credibility of a man who has the smell of the front lines of the battlefield on his clothes because he was there yesterday and will be back there tomorrow. I'm proud to say my friend Tom Doyle is that man." --Jerry B. Jenkins, Novelist & Biographer… (mere)

I managed to get halfway through the audio of this but was not impressed. The audio narration was irritating as the male tried to manipulate his voice to cover female characters which sounded ridiculous.

The stories themselves seemed unlikely but I was expecting that as I know that this type of persecution is going on around the world. The problem I had really was that almost all of the stories involved visions and dreams of Jesus. Apparently Jesus appeared in person to most of these non-believing Muslims resulting in their eventual conversions to Christianity. The author documents this as if the Muslims began expecting Jesus to appear to them--as if it was a regular event. In these visions and dreams Jesus communicates with the Muslims, instructs them and tells them what to do......

Whilst I obviously accept that God can do anything He wants and is more than capable of sending dreams and visions to people. I don't believe that He chooses to work like this today. He has chosen the method of preaching and evangelism in order for people to be saved. If we believe that Islamic countries have become too dangerous for missionaries to operate (one of the reasons given for these dreams/visions being necessary) then what does that say about God's power in these situations? The rise of Islam hasn't come as a surprise to God, He was aware of what would happen when He inspired Scripture and ordained His methods.

The below articles explain the theological premise for rejecting such phenomenon

I gave up on the book for that reason. I don't recommend it for Christian readers as I believe it will confuse people and lead to a further lack of spiritual discernment. Let's instead pray for missionaries to be willing to go to these countries. Also for the Bible to be widely available and for internet access to be possible so that the truth can be known and the people set free.

In Killing Christians: Living the Faith Where It's Not Safe to Believe, Tom Doyle takes his readers to Muslims-turned-Christians in Egypt, Saudi-Arabia, Iraq, the UAE, Gaza, Syria, and Lebanon. The suffering Jesus Christ promised that would be part of following Him, is experienced first-hand. And while some are martyred, others are miraculously protected in order to spread the gospel further among Muslims.
The depth and proximity of having to give up your life to Christ, physically, not spiritually, may be unimaginable to most Western Christians that live in countries with freedom of religion. Countless dreams in which Jesus shows Himself to Muslims, and God answering prayers are means to stir people to devote themselves to Jesus Christ and become a follower of the Way. The blood of martyrs are the seed of the Church, in the first centuries CE as well as the 21st century.
Where the recent testimonies in this book of real people in real situations can bless you as a reader, Doyle also challenges you to bless your fellow believers in Muslim countries through a daily prayer for those who, because of their faith in Christ, are in prison, persecution, or danger. ( )
