OVERVIEW

Hearts of Fire tells the true stories of eight modern Christian women in countries around the world who have faced hardship and persecution for their faith and ministry. Through vivid language, riveting dialogue, and enough excitement for an action movie, the book holds the reader’s interest from beginning to end.

The stories of these eight women shed light on Christianity in the wider world, delving into the depth of widespread persecution that plagues many countries. With each story, the reader’s heart alternately breaks over desperate circumstances and then leaps with inspiration as the stories recount both horrific atrocities and astounding miracles.

Filled with testimony, scripture, and sound theology, this book is not just about understanding the plight of persecuted Christians. It also draws the reader in with assurances of God’s faithfulness, His miraculous power, and His great love, building up the reader’s own faith. Furthermore, the reader can’t help but share in the passion these women have for the lost.

Hearts of Fire is deep and thought-provoking, yet exciting and written in story form, making it an excellent text for both pastors and laypeople, missionaries and business people, parents and teenagers.
