According to the World Evangelical Alliance, over 200 million Christians in at least 60 countries are denied fundamental human rights solely because of their faith. Many face widespread and systematic persecution.The Very Stones Cry Out is a passionate challenge to the rest of the Church, and all advocates of religious freedom, to break their silence on this issue.

In The Very Stones Cry Out Baroness Cox and Benedict Rogers chronicle the very real and too-often ignored persecution of Christians in seventeen countries around the world ranging from China and Vietnam to Iran and Cuba. Each chapter tells of untold hardship and suffering for the Gospel but at the same time tells of such hope: there are many stories of men and women who remain faithful to the Gospel even in the face of imprisonment, torture, and death.

Cox and Rogers enable Christians in the West, where the threat of real persecution is often non-existent, to learn so much from their suffering brothers and sisters and to draw strength from that. Also, it encourages them to pray and to contact their political representatives and church leaders to actively do more to be a voice for the voiceless. ( )
