Here Come the Jesus Freaks

In 1995, the Christian music group dcTalk put out a song title “Jesus Freaks” that described those who had been persecuted for their faith in Jesus. Several years later, a book was published by the same name and it told the stories of Christians worldwide who had been persecuted, and many times killed, for their faith. It is not an easy read, but it certainly helps put things in perspective. Too often, as Christians living in a country with freedom of religion, we can get caught up in things like denominational differences when around the world our brothers and sisters in Christ are risking their very lives to share the good news. If you have the chance, I highly recommend the book.
