About the book
God's people are hiding in plain sight.
Tens of millions of Christians live in China today, leading double lives to hide from a government that relentlessly persecutes them.
By day, Bob Fu was a teacher in a communist school; by night, he was a preacher in an underground house church network. This edge-of-your-seat book tells the true story of Fu's conversion to Christianity, his arrest and imprisonment for starting an illegal house church, his harrowing escape, and his subsequent rise to prominence in the United States as an advocate for his oppressed brethren.
God's Double Agent will inspire you to boldly proclaim and live out your faith in a world that is at times indifferent, and at other times murderously hostile, to those who spread the gospel.
I love autobiography but this one is particularly special as it is also the testimony of a man born and raised in China that was able to leave the country eventually as a Christian. From a poor upbringing, he was able to be accepted in university in order to study. He wanted to make money but eventually God met him and he lead a double life for many years.
Have you ever wondered how you can be bolder with your faith? This book will open your eyes toward how Chinese believers are willing to do everything in order to be able to live as Christians in a Communist country. I really enjoyed the way the book is written as it makes it more personal as though you are reading a personal journal of the author. Well in a way it is because he is presenting his life from birth until now. But the style of writing allow you to be part of his story as you read and discover the events in his life. The book also contains photographs of the life of Bob Fu from the younger years to now. I find it interesting to look at pictures of the life of someone when I read their testimony.

If you know someone who loves reading testimonies and biographies, I suggest that you consider this book as a potential gift this Christmas. Also, if you want to be touched in ways you cannot imagine, I think this book would be a great read in the new year. Reading this book has encouraged me to be bolder in my faith whether with people around me or on social media.
