As leader of one of the largest underground churches in China, Pastor Shen Xiaoming knew the meaning of persecution firsthand. While traveling and preaching, he experienced deprivation, disease, and imprisonment - but saw extraordinary results. Millions of believers were joined in his network of churches. If classified as Protestant, his denomination is the largest one in the world and keeps growing despite China's hostile government. But the worst persecution didn't always come from the government. On April 16 2002, Pastor Shen was lured to a supposed Bible conference and, along with several others, kidnapped by the dangerous Eastern Lightning cult. This group believes that Christ returned in 1992, and they use force and deception to convert others. Pastor Shen endured their torture, abuse, and indoctrination for months. This intriguing first-person account of Pastor Shen's life, work, and persevering stand against Eastern Lightning spotlights both the underground church in China and this strange new worldwide sect that continues to murder in the name of Christ.
