This book is a novel. It is about the persecution of Protestants during the last several years in a neighbor country. It is written from facts, not fancy. Situations similar to those it describes are carefully documented (see Preface).
No Christian publisher enjoys issuing a book that leads to strong protest and sharp criticism of another faith; for our job is primarily to preach the Gospel. But Christians, U.S.A., ought to know what the Church in other lands is going through as a call to sincere, persistent prayer. Moreover, history points repeatedly to the good effect on other Christians who have read about or seen the glad trials of faith undergone by Christian martyrs; our own conviction and devotion become heightened, even as happened to the Christians in St. Paul's time, who were made bold by his imprisonment. And finally, the truth should be told to demonstrate once again the damage of a religious system founded upon St. Peter rather than upon Christ the Rock; a change of roots results in a different fruit from that of love.
Our hope is that reading this book will lead to indignation, not wrath; and to a better understanding of the reasons behind the intolerance of the Roman Catholic system when released from legal restraints and allowed to find its natural level of activity.
