God's Double Agent: A Book Review

About The Book:

God's people are hiding in plain sight
Tens of millions of Christians live in China today, leading double lives to hide from a government that relentlessly persecutes them.

By day, Bob Fu was a teacher in a communist school; by night, he was a preacher in an underground house church network. This edge-of-your-seat book tells the true story of 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 oppressed brethren. 

God's Double Agent will inspire you to boldly proclaim and live out your faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times murderously hostile, to those who spread the gospel.

My Review:

As I read the journey of Bob Fu's life, I could not help but feel like I was in a lecture hall listening to him live! This book was written in such an awesome conversational manner and I truly enjoyed that manner of writing. It is clearly apparent that he has an amazing for God but also his people in China, and was truly inspirational. A truly courageous man, and his story is one that needs to be heard by all!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
