Overview Essays on the persecution of Christians across the globe.
Publishers Description Suffering with Christ was not only the experience of the early church but is that of much of the church today. This volume presents up to date, global reflections on the different ways in which the church suffers: from class discrimination to government persecution; from interreligious conflict to tensions between different Christian groups. With a special focus on Pentecostal/Charismatic Christianity but also bringing Roman Catholic and Orthodox perspectives into the mix, this book provides both theological and practical insight.
