‘Undoubtedly the most significant book written about the most important aspect of the Suffering Church: the victorious women. Without them the Church has no future.’ Brother Andrew.
What is it like for a Christian woman living where it is illegal to live openly for Christ? How does a wife and mother respond when her husband refuses to give up his work of faith despite the physical & emotional risk to himself & his family? What happens to her when he is arrested, imprisoned or murdered because of what he believes? These are the questions facing real women in today’s world. While stories are told and retold about the men who suffer for their faith, these women are the forgotten victims of the persecuted Church. As the wife of the President of Open Doors International, Anneke Companjen has travelled the world and seen at first hand the tragic toll of persecution. Following the suicide of a woman she had befriended – the wife of an imprisoned Vietnamese pastor – she decided the world should hear the stories of these women of incredible faith & courage.
