Too Many To Jail

Are there a lot of Christians in Iran?  There are more than you might think in a Muslim country.  Today in Iran there are at least 100,000, some people say there are up to a million.  In 1979, there were fewer than 500.  Iran is now one of the fastest growing areas for Christianity in the world.  Why?

Is it because of politics, religion, or more?  There is still a lot of persecution of Christians, but there are new Christians every day.  How are they able to grow?  House churches. 

Learn more about this growing church in this book.

Mark Bradley is a researcher with a charity.

My thoughts-

When I saw the cover of this book, I immediately became interested in it, because I did not know anything about the Christians in Iran.  After reading it, I feel that I am a lot more informed and amazed at the dedication of the Iranian Christians. 

I learned about the history of Christianity in Iran, how and why the government has become so hostile, and the importance of house churches.  What really surprised me was how many Christians there are and how much the religion is growing. It is growing more quickly than in many other parts of the world.  God is certainly working in this part of the world.  It is interesting how quickly the number of Christians can grow when there is need and desire.  It is too bad that many people in other parts of the world become so complacent. 

I really enjoyed reading and learning from the three sections in the "Appendix."  I was able to learn about the history of Christianity in Iran, different aggressive acts towards Christians, and a testament from Mehdi Dijab.

I learned a lot about Iran and Christianity when I read this book.  I highly recommend Too Many to Jail, by Mark Bradley, to you.
