Standing in the Fire – Courageous New Believers Living in Frightening Times

Tom Doyle, Vice President & Middle East Director for I Am Second / E3 Partners, and author of Dreams and Visions – Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? and Standing in the Fire- Courageous Christians Living in Frightening Times

“Persecuted believers have become the new face of genuine Christianity.”
With those startling words, Tom Doyle pulls back the curtain on the headlines from the Middle East. “Christian Persecution is at an all-time high globally.” Doyle says:

But that’s not the whole story. A new Jesus movement is erupting around the world, and persecuted believers are leading the way. The stories in this book introduce you to some amazingly courageous Jesus followers. Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in King Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace, these believers are fearless and not alone. So, the question is this: “Is Christianity winning or losing?” Standing in the Fire was written to tell stories of victory from the front lines of the war raging around Jesus’ church. The battle is fierce and not letting up. Yet this is one of our finest hours.

Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel. As the Vice President and Middle East Director for e3 Partners since 2001, Tom’s experience in the heart of these Islamic nations is extensive. A gifted storyteller, Tom brings God’s astounding work in these nations to light. Whether in his books, on television (FOX News, The 700 Club, 100 Huntley Street), on the radio (Focus on the Family, Janet Parshall Live), at conferences (Epicenter, Passion, Open Doors, Voice of the Martyrs, Calvary Chapel, The Crescent Project, and e3 Partners), or in local churches, Tom shares fresh, compelling, and thought-provoking reports of God’s activity.

Tom graduated from Biola College in 1979 and Dallas Theological Seminary in 1983, and is a licensed guide for the State of Israel with over 70 trips. After pastoring churches in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico for 20 years, he became the Middle East director for e3 Partners/I Am Second. His wife of 37 years, JoAnn, serves with him at e3 as the director of Not Forgotten, a ministry to women of the Middle East. They have six children and four grandchildren and are praying for about 20 more! Tom has written 8 books including the best sellers: Dreams and Visions-Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? And also, Killing Christians-Living the Faith Where it is Not Safe to Believe.

JESUS, WOMEN, AND ISLAM

Amina was an Egyptian university student working hard to build a better society. Esmat just wanted to raise her little boy in peace. Deema suffered from attacks by an evil spirit. How did they encounter God in Jesus? Overall, what conditions move Muslim women toward Jesus? What are the barriers that make it hard for them to come? After they believe, how can we help them grow as disciples?
