Christians in Adversity
Faith Cook’s subject is familiar to Christian literature but these pages have several factors which make them arresting and captivating. Instead of meeting with well-known names, here is a portrait gallery which includes a number who lived far from public notice. Perhaps John Bradford, Richard Cameron and Edward Payson are still remembered, but who knows of such things as John Oxtoby’s fellowship with God, Wang Ming-Dao’s resolution, Susannah Spurgeon’s ministry of love and Catherine Boston’s lonely sufferings? These pages are full of moving records from the old and the modern.
