You Can Be A Hero Alone: Survival Stories for the Isolated Christian

00-Heroes-Alone-COVER-KINDLEThis book was written for the isolated Christian who is living In a country where Christianity is illegal. In a community with no New Testament church. On a military base, university campus, or prison As a shut-in at a home. In a community with a congregation, but has self-isolated from them.

When alone, it is easy to become discouraged and stay discouraged. This book shows how people hung on alone in Bible times for ten years, twenty years, a hundred years ~ sometimes thinking they were failures, sometimes wondering if it is all worth it, sometimes thinking of giving up. But always hanging on. The account in this book of each isolated Bible character is in story form to make them more real to the reader. To know exactly what the Bible does say about them, applicable scriptures are included.

This book was written for new Christians and seasoned Christians who have hung on alone and who continue to hang on alone. They are all over the world, sometimes in pagan countries, and sometimes even among us but forgotten. It is up to people who know of such isolated Christians to get this book to them. In countries where it would be illegal to have this book, electronic books readable either on e-readers or computers are available from Amazon.

God bless all our isolated Christians who keep hanging on. You are our heroes!
