Overview

An atheist-turned-Christian refugee from China has documented 22,000 testimonies of the brutal persecution of Christians by the Chinese government. His 10-foot-high stack of personal testimonies, eyewitness accounts, and photographs is being presented to the Bush administration at a time when China's record on human rights is coming under new scrutiny. Christianity Today senior news writer Tony Carnes' coverage is an international-scale revelation.

The persecution of Christians is as old as the faith, and still it is shocking to Americans who have enjoyed religious freedom for more than 200 years. In this study, we will look at what the Bible says about those who are denied this freedom.
