CHRISTIANS are being murdered, tortured, raped, beaten, burnt alive in their homes and churches, killed in bomb attacks, imprisoned and driven from their homes on a daily basis.

They are being subjected to the greatest persecution in the history of their faith, but the world continues to treat this epic attack on human rights as a story of small importance.

A booklet was sent to me the other day by an organisation called Church in Chains. A map of the world in the booklet shows that Christians are being persecuted, with varying degrees of brutality, in roughly half of Africa and most of Asia.
