    1. This book is not for the squeamish, nor is it for those who insist on good writing. In fact it is sometimes so badly written that it's hard to understand, and some of events are so brutal that you want to stop reading anyway. So why persevere, you may ask. Only because the book provides a detailed, often eyewitness account of the life of the church in Cambodia before, during and after the Khmer Rouge years. It's not like any other book I've read, and this is my second reading. I highly recommend [...]

    2. Another quite culturally significant book. Though I had heard of Cambodia's killing fields before, I never imagined the extent and horror of what happened during that time. Not the best writing, but a book I'm really glad to have read to have a better idea of what some Christians have had to undergo in defending and spreading the gospel, and what Christians in these situations are capable of as Christ works in them.

    3. This is the classic book on history of the birth and growth of the Church in Cambodia from 1923 to 1990. Though its history, its full of powerful stories of God's protection, guidance, and grace as a young church was strengthened and flourished despite such severe persecution. Read it and you will be blessed!

    4. This book is the most comprehensive one out there about the history of the evangelical church in Cambodia spanning from the 1920's through the early '90's. A little slow to start with but completely filled with amazing stories of God meeting His faithful people right in the middle of unspeakable trials. Also not fantastic writing but the content makes up for it!

    5. Gruesome.disturbingd, but the Cambodia Christians had been very encouraging. They still worshiped the great God despite all the persecution from their own people, the Khmer Rouge, even the foreigners in the refugee camp.

    6. an excellent book, starts with the Buddhist worldview dominating the country to it's becoming Marxist. the Christian Church survives and in the end the confusion echos the postmodern confused worldview.

    7. For any who want to minister in Cambodia, this book is a must-read. It is an account of Protestant Christianity within the country.

    8. A great history of the church in Cambodia. Highly recommend to any who want to understand this complicated land.
