Bearing Witness Book Review #FlyBy #giveaway

Pin It Now!                                              bearing witness book cover

   I am just getting back into some book reviewing as our homeschooling year has ended and I finally have some free time on my hands. I like to read all sorts of genres of books but tend to stick to Christian based. This book that I am sharing with you today is one that tells Stories of Martyrdom and Costly Dicipleship, it is Bearing Witness. I was given this opportunity from FlyByPromotions.

Bearing Witness: Stories of Martyrdom and Costly Discipleship
Publisher: Plough Publishing House
Category: Christianity/History
Binding: Softcover
240 pages
  This was not an easy light hearted read by any means, this was a thought provoking condemning read.. Have you truly thought what some risk by witnessing to others? Would you risk your life to profess your faith in Jesus Christ?? Throughout our existence here on Earth many have done just that and will continue to do so, are you ready to be one of them? Bearing Witness takes you from Early Christianity through Radical Reformation and then to Early Modern Witnessings to where we are now in recent events Witnessing.

  What you may not think about is how being a follow of Christ can be a dangerous path, but at the same time it is also the most fulfilling path. There is a lengthy introduction that lays out the journey for you and then you begin the travels through Christianity. Tales of Men, Women and Children who have stood strong in their Faith and professed it others and sometimes paid a very high price for this. One thing is for sure they all their Faith was important enough to them to share it with others without worrying about the consequences.

  This book held me captive while I read it, I felt as if I was there watching as the stories, true stories unfolded right in front of me. I felt the strength of these folks as well as the anguish. It moved me and condemned me all at the same time. It got me to thinking.... Am I truly prepared to profess my Faith in Christ at any cost, or am in complacent in my life just sharing with like minded individuals or those on the fence ready to jump in and join me? I cannot wait to change my way of thinking and sharing and witnessing and step out of my comfort zone, I am also going to share this book in hopes it will get others to answer God's call as well.
