Briefly Noted

In her latest post, Susan writes briefly about her experiences as a Christian in China. That kind of experience is very valuable to us in the West, where we routinely quote Scriptures about persecution, but really haven't the faintest idea what religious persecution is really like. It's not only Susan that's started me thinking about this, but a brief article from Christianity Today, called The Cruel Edge of the World. Of course it's only the "cruel edge" from our perspective (here in the West), but to the Christians in places like China and southeast Asia the cruel edge is the very center, where the battle of the Lord is raging hottest.
