Martyrs of Malatya (Review)
This review is for the book "Martyrs of Malatya: Martyred for the Messiah in Turkey" by James Wright. In April of 2007, three men who were Christians met with some local men who they thought wanted to learn more about the Bible and the Christian faith. Instead, these three men were slaughtered for no other reason than because of their Christian faith.
The book begins by telling each man's journey to Christianity in a country where the gospel is not widely spread. The book also describes how they connected as well as how they began what they thought was a friendship with the men who ended up murdering them.
This is a book that will bring to light the people who are still sacrificing their lives for the cause of Christ. News such as this is often blown over on media stations. This is a powerful testimony of an event which should not be allowed to occur. I am grateful to these men and their families for their convictions, and I believe this book will open the eyes of many who read it.
Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
