|The Ultimate Jesus Freaks. (Jesus Freaks #1 ) Stories of those Who Stood for Jesus|
With life-changing impact, Jesus Freaks: Martyrs and Jesus Freaks 2: Revolutionaries have captured the attention of Christians of all ages with their stories of Christian martyrs and revolutionaries who took a stand for Christ against the culture of their day. Through these influential books, dc Talk challenges readers to pray for the persecuted church around the world and openly stand for Jesus. The new packages highlight the differences between the two books.
This Gold Medallion-nominated book opens the eyes of a new generation to the persecution of Christians around the world. Offering stories of martyrs past and present, it's a wake-up call to prayer and to lives of unashamed faith.
Definition of martyr: (from the Greek word for "witness")
* One who chooses to suffer death rather than to deny Jesus Christ or His work.
* One who bears testimony to the truth of what he has seen or heard or knows, as in a witness in court of justice.
* One who sacrifices something very important to further the kingdom of God.
* One who endures servere or constant suffering for their Christian witness.
* A Jesus Freak.
There are more Christian martyrs today than there were in 100 AD--in the days of the Roman Empire. According to a study done at Regent University, there were close to 164,000 Christians martyred around the world in 1999. Their stories must be told.
"Jesus Freaks by dc Talk and The Voice of the Martyrs, is a companion volume to dc Talk's album of the same name. It is a book for teenagers about martyrdom, containing dozens of profiles of figures ranging from Stephen, whose martyrdom is described in the Book of Acts, to 'Anila and Perveen,' two teenage Pakistani girls and Christian believers. In 1997, Perveen was killed for running away in order to avoid marrying a Muslim man; Anila was imprisoned for helping her friend escape. In an introduction to the book, Michael Tait explains its purpose: 'In a world built on free will instead of God's will, we must be the Freaks. While we may not be called to martyr our lives, we must martyr our way of life. We must put our selfish ways to death and march to a different beat. Then the world will see Jesus.' The book's design is hip and easy to read, and its summary of Christian persecutions that continue today is useful--and frightening." --Amazon.com
"Amazing true stories of Christians who would not compromise or apologize for their faith in Jesus." --Breakaway Magazine
