God's Double Agent
The True Story of a Chinese Christian's Fight for Freedom
by Bob Fu With Nancy French
"The riveting account of a student leader of the Tiananmen Square protests who becomes a literal prisoner for Christ and then escapes to the West. Impossible to put down."
—Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author
This edge-of-your-seat book tells the true story of Bob Fu's conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape and rise to prominence in the United States.
"After our experience of prison and house arrest, death wasn't the worst option, but now Heidi and I had reason to ﬁght for life. She was pregnant." Read the first 20 pages of God's Double Agent here.
"Bob Fu's story is a testimony to the power of faith and an inspiration to people struggling to break free from oppression." Read what former first lady Laura Bush and others are saying about God's Double Agent.
We are told to "remember those in bondage as if we are bound with them." We could not sit silently when we heard their cries.
As I read Bob Fu's testimony, I wonder if I would have the courage that he and his wife demonstrated in responding to the draconian tactics of the Chinese government. I doubt that I will ever experience martyrdom, but perhaps I can discover ways to walk more fully in the way of Jesus.
God's Double Agent begs the question: What are we willing to do help those who are suffering, especially those in China? And what are we willing to lose to follow Jesus?
The persecution of Christians in other countries, including China, is much more physical. The book is inspiring and at times gripping. Fu’s escape to the West would make a great movie.
Read God's Double Agent for a story of someone who defied a government... and lived to tell his story. We need more people of courage who take a stand!
We often throw around terms like oppression and tyranny, like we have a clue as to what they mean. For that reason alone, I would encourage everyone to read the story of Bob Fu, and his wife Heidi.
As I read the book, I found myself wondering how it could be possible that these events continue to take place in our world today – was it possible that these accounts were exaggerated or conflated in order to make them seem more dramatic?
