In countries around the world, Christian communities are facing intense persecution. Yet at the same time, these “underground” churches are growing exponentially as the gospel spreads in some of the most unlikely places. What can we learn from our brothers and sisters in Christ who are living out their faith where it’s most difficult to do so—and how can we continue to support the spread of the gospel? Sharing his own experience with persecuted churches around the world, David Platt helps us answer this question.
