Faithful Disobedience

As Christians in the West, we face increasing challenges to our faith, and we have much to learn from our fellow Christians in China.  How do you honor Christ in a society where faith is forbidden?
Writers and students of world Christianity, Hannah Nation and K. A. Ellis introduce us to distinguished House Church pastors and their profound theology of living under persecution.
