Bob Fu came of age in China during the time that the Communist regime came to power. His family was greatly impacted by these events and he grew up in poverty. Despite his upbringing, he reached out to the "Heavenly Grandfather" during a moment of crisis. Much later, when he was at university, he became involved in the student uprising against communism. From then on he was a marked man by the government and treated horribly. He was shut up in a room day after day where he was forced to write confessions that were never good enough. No one except his girlfriend would associate with him. He began to think of taking his own life and of causing harm to those that betrayed him. One day a student who was tired of his depressed attitude gave him a biography that a western teacher had passed on to him. It turned out to be the story of how a Chinese man found hope in Jesus. Bob was greatly encouraged by the story and sought out the western teacher and told him that he wanted to follow Jesus. Bob became involved in sharing his new found Christian faith with other students, but learned to be stealthy as he the government was always watching. Bob's girlfriend/fiance also became a Christian and as they went to school and then Bob started working as a teacher they also became more involved with the underground Chinese church. Eventually Bob was imprisoned, then released, then he and his wife eventually had to flee China. They came to the US and now Bob works to help the religously persecuted from China through his China Aide organization.
This was an incredible story. I especially liked the first hand perspective of how the political system in China affected the oridinary people. It was very insightful. I it hard to follow in a few places, but that is probably due to Bob translating his thoughts into his second language and working with a co-writer. ( )

God's Double Agent by Bob Fu is the exciting memoir of a man who grew up under the Communist regimen, became a Christian and evangelist and finally escaped from China and dedicated his life the organization he established called ChinaAid to help other Christians and political dissidents being persecuted by the Chinese government.

This is a very entertaining story and also one that reminds us of the freedoms we take for granted in this country. It surprised me how willing many of these people are to risk their very lives for their religious beliefs and to help others with similar beliefs. I wonder if I could be so brave under such grueling circumstances.

I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads program. ( )
