More About Esther Ahn Kim & I-Suk An
ESTHER AHN KIM was a Korean Christian who spent six years (1939-1945) in Japanese prisons during WWII as a result of her faith. As she prepared to be martyred, Miss Ahn s courageous activities in prison brought the light of the Gospel to many, and resulted in a reduction of the brutal torture Christians were subjected to. After her release she was married to Don Kim, and the couple toured Europe and the United States speaking of God s sustaining power during those harrowing years. She is author of "If I Perish." Her story was published in Korea and Japan, where it became a national sensation, reaching number three on the all-time religious bestseller list."

Magnificent! Nov 13, 2007
I read this book many years ago as a teen and it has remained in my memory every since. It touched my heart to the core. Amazing story indeed!
What a Christian Life Looks Like May 19, 2007
Ahn Ei Sook was a living testimony of what a disciplined, prepared and faithful follower of Christ looks like. Her ongoing determination to gain control over her flesh, and also her courage in a time of extreme persecution made this book riveting to read and a true inspiration. The historical account of this time period (Japan and Korea 1939-1945) was also fascinating to read from an eyewitness account. This book was required reading for me, but how grateful I was to have the opportunity to glimpse this remarkable life. Since this book reads very much like a fiction, I had to keep reminding myself that it was in fact a very true and inspiring story.
