Defying ISIS: Preserving Christianity in the Place of Its Birth and in Your Own Backyard By Johnnie Moore
Synopsis: Has the Christian Holocaust Begun?
A Christian genocide at the hands of Islamic extremists is unfolding in the Middle East. Entire Christian populations have been eliminated, and the ultimate aim of ISIS and the Islamic State is to eradicate the world of Christianity.
They are well on their way. Thousands of Christians arrive in refugee camps daily as tents can be seen for miles across the countryside of Jordan, N. Iraq and Lebanon.
Churches have been demolished, crosses burned and replaced with ISIS flags, homes destroyed, entire communities displaced, religious conversions forced, human torture enacted, children slaughtered, and all in plain sight.
In many cities every single Christian has been “taken care of” – displaced, murdered or forcibly converted, and just as the Nazis painted the Star of David on the homes of Jews, Jihadists have painted the Christian “N” (the first letter of the Arabic word for “Christian”) on the homes of indigenous Christian communities to identify them before destroying them. They have proclaimed that they will not stop until Christianity is wiped off the earth from the land of its birth all the way to your own backyard. So what can be done to help these brave souls in the crossfire and protect a holy land?
With never before told stories of horror and of hope, Johnnie Moore unveils the threat of ISIS against worldwide Christianity, and what the world must do about it. Along the way, he introduces us to the courageous Christians who have stared down ISIS and lived to raise their crosses higher.
Review: This was an eye opening, hard to read book. No one wants to think that these atrocities are happening or that they could happen to us. If ever there was a doubt that we are living in the end times, this group of Islamic extremists and what they are doing, have put that to rest. You will read about some hard things, but you will also read about some courageous people! I can only pray that God would give me the boldness to be as brave as the persecuted Christians in the Middle East. I encourage you to read this book and see what God would have YOU do in the face of this horrific treatment of our brothers and sisters who are suffering for their faith. I highly recommend this book! If you read it, please leave me your thoughts.
