God’s Hostage: A True Story of Persecution, Imprisonment, and Perservance

What would you do for Jesus? How far would you go to share your faith? Persecution of Christians in on the rise throughout the world, churches are bombed or burned, believers are imprisoned or harassed even to the point that trying to share the gospel is illegal. I finished the book in one day and highly recommend God’s Hostage.
“God’s Hostage,” a true story of persecution, imprisonment, and perseverance is a true story of a pastor and his wife serving as missionaries in Turkey. In 1993 Andrew Brunson and his wife moved to Turkey, the largest unevangelized country in the world, through some difficulties and threats they were successful in planting new churches in a place where many people had never met a Christian.
They were arrested in 2016, Turkey released Norine, who stayed in the country, Andrew was imprisoned for 735 days. He was discouraged, at times felt that God abandoned him, broken, heart wrenching, but in the end a light in a very dark world. I found it quite upsetting that countries use innocent people for political purposes. At the end of the day, God is in control, He is always with us. He will bring us through the darkest of days.
I received a copy of the book from Baker Books in exchange for an honest opinion.
