Forget what the history textbooks told you about martyrdom being a thing of the past. Christians are being persecuted and slaughtered today. Raymond Ibrahim unveils the shocking truth about Christians in the Muslim world. Believers in Jesus Christ suffer oppression and are massacred at the hands of radicals for worshipping and spreading the gospel of the Lord. Discover the true-life stories that the media won't report in Ibrahim's Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War on Christians.
Two thousand years after St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, was stoned to death for his faith, Christians are once again being systematically persecuted on a large scale and with lethal cruelty. Their antagonists? Adherents of radical Islam.
The violent persecution of Christians by Muslims is now a global human rights crisis, but it has received little attention in the mainstream press. Americans were shocked in 2012 to learn that a Christian pastor was sentenced to death in Iran for his faith; but few had heard about the thirty other documented cases of severe persecution of Christians in Muslim countries that were happening at the same time.
Churches burned to the ground, crucifixes and Bibles confiscated and destroyed, and Christians tortured, raped or killed for their faith are chillingly regular events in Muslim countries, sometimes even encouraged or enabled by the governments themselves.
In Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians, Raymond Ibrahim documents the persecution of Christians that is commonplace in Muslim countries; explains why the mainstream media has been so quiet on the topic; and argues powerfully for greater exposure and international outcry for this crisis.
Raymond Ibrahim combines a thorough knowledge of the languages and texts of Islam with up-to-the-minute reports on recent incidences of persecution in a powerful account of a tragedy the mainstream media has largely chosen to ignore.
