“Tens of millions of Christians live in China today, many of them leading double lives or in hiding from a government that relentlessly persecutes them. Bob Fu, whom the Wall Street Journal called “The pastor of China”s underground railroad,” is fighting to protect his fellow believers from persecution, imprisonment, and even death. God”s Double Agent is his fascinating and riveting story.
Bob Fu is indeed God”s double agent. By day Fu worked as a full-time lecturer in a communist school; by night he pastored a house church and led an underground Bible school. This can’t-put-it-down book chronicles Fu”s conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape, and his subsequent rise to prominence in the United States as an advocate for his brethren. God”s Double Agent will inspire readers even as it challenges them to boldly proclaim and live out their faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times murderously hostile, to those who spread the gospel.” (Description and book cover picture taken from Chapters.ca)
I know, such a long book description for this right? But it really explains everything so well. And when it says that it’s a can’t put it down and I’ll add page turner to that, because that’s literally what it is. You don’t need a suspense book or anything for it to be a page turner. Well, the only time that you’ll be able to put it down for is when you’re sleeping it’s that good of a book.
You hear stories on the radio or television about what’s going on in China and you think about how crazy it is, and than you read something like this book and you think ‘Wow, that’s absolutely crazy.’ You would be absolutely right to think in that way, because that’s what happen to me. I’ve heard about things going on in China at church and reading things online so you think you kind of know what’s going on over there, but when I read this book, I didn’t know as much as I thought I did.
It was definitely a page turner for me, everything that’s going on over in China and everything’s that’s happen to Bob Fu in the life that he’s lead, it’s absolutely mind-blowing.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this book, and why should there be? It’s crazy what people are doing over in China along with some of the other countries to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ!
