How South Sudan Won Her Independence
In response to increasingly urgent requests for offering our bestselling Faith Under Fire in Sudan book by Dr. Peter Hammond in E-book format. This complete revision and expansion of Faith Under Fire in Sudan is 71,590 words, in 31 chapters and includes over 85 pictures and maps, most in colour. This revised edition is three times larger than the first edition, which was published in 1996. With South Sudan's independence 9 July 2011, the urgency of producing this book, both in hard cover and in soft cover, pushed us to work around the clock until we had the most up-to-date and comprehensive book on Sudan, ever produced.
Some schools immediately made it one of their setwork books. Requests were received to deliver copies of the book to chaplains, teachers, pastors, bishops and government leaders in South Sudan, as well as to the President of South Sudan, Salva Kiir.
This book includes many previously unpublished pictures and compelling new stories of the oldest community of Christians in the largest country in Africa, who suffered some of the worst persecution, in the longest war of the 20th century, and yet with the fastest church growth and with more Muslims coming to Christ than anywhere else that we knew of.
From a missionary perspective, Sudan is a most strategic country in the 10/40 window. Sudan was the last country to become Muslim, and South Sudan was one of the first countries to be liberated from Islam. There are millions of Evangelical Christians in Sudan and South Sudan, most of whom know Arabic. Many of them come from a Muslim background.
Behind Enemy Lines
Frontline Fellowship's bestselling book on Africa's forgotten war is also available in hard copy, in hard cover and paperback. The expanded and thoroughly revised third edition is 320 pages and includes over 200 pictures and maps. Faith Under Fire takes you behind the lines of one of the longest wars of recent years, and introduces you to the unforgettable Christian heroes of this colossal conflict.
