What kinds of hostility do Christians encounter? When does hostility spill over into persecution? What are the underlying roots found in sin, spiritual warfare, and opposition to Christ? How does God support and encourage us in during times of difficulty? How can we respond?
Christians encounter hostility and subtle persecution in the U.S. and face open persecution in other parts of the world. We are called to turn the other cheek, but in what other ways would God have us respond? Standing Firm provides biblical perspectives to help understand the challenge of persecution and how God promises to guide, use, and sustain us.
In this book, author Jesse Yow unfolds the biblical perspective on hostility and persecution and shows how God would have us respond. He uses stories of recent trends of hostility and persecution toward Christians in the U.S. and worldwide and provides positive options for a response reflecting the Gospel and life under God's grace.
