I've tried searching for these and for some reason they don't come up, does anyone have them and want to make a deal?  (I have taken some out and wishlisted the ones that came up, but they are still listed below in another post and if you have them I am still interested in them.  I used to read a lot of fiction, but now I am reading mostly theology or missionary/real life stories, although I still ove a good fiction book)

Serving God in Hostile Territory

Bianca Adler
In countries hostile to the gospel, first in Romania and then in Israel, Bianca was a faithful witness for the Lord. In exceptional circumstances, and at times when prison seemed a natural consequence of her activities, her prayers were answered and her work continued. You will be captivated as she shares about of her remarkable life as she worked with the Wurmbrands in Romania in the 1940s, nearly 30 years in Israel, and then directed the office of VOM-New Zealand.

In the Shadow of the Cross

Glenn M. Penner
Two brothers present an offering to the Lord. One is a “keeper of sheep,” the other a “worker of the ground.” One of the offerings is acceptable to God; the other is not. This results in one brother rising up against the other and killing him. Within the initial four chapters of the Bible, we witness the first act of martyrdom (or religious persecution): Cain killing Abel (Genesis 4:2-8). Throughout the Scripture (Old and New Testament), the trials and persecutions of those who chose to live godly are revealed. From Cain to the prophets, from John the Baptist to the disciples, the world has always rejected (the) Truth. Now with VOM’s newest release, In the Shadow of the Cross, you can join Glenn Penner (Communications Director with VOM – Canada) as he explores suffering and persecution throughout the entire Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Included are observations and studies from nearly 200 Christian scholars, both ancient and modern. Never before has such an intensive study of persecution in the Bible been assembled, and no student of the Bible should be without this incredible resource.
“The Bible (especially the New Testament) was written by persecuted believers to persecuted believers. This context cannot be ignored without it having profoundly negative implications for how we read and apply the Bible and how we follow Christ individually and corporately. A cross-centered gospel requires cross-carrying messengers.” – Glenn Penner, from In the Shadow of the Cross.
