I read 'Jesus Freaks' for a school project, and found that it has changed my entire outlook on life. What you read in here shocks and amazes you, because you hear of all the martyrs around the world, but not about how they die for Christ. I know that after reading this book, I am proud to say that I will die for Christ. It will rejuvinate any loss of faith that you have.

The book Jesus Freaks is a book containing over forty short stories about Christian martyrs. These martyrs, or "Jesus freaks", stood for their faith in Jesus. The stories range from all different times and all different places around the world. These martyrs were stoned, burned at stake, thrown in jail, or given some other cruel punishment for standing up for Jesus. Many martyrs died praying to God, and even praying for their killers. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more deeper aspects of Christian faith because of the background given in the stories. I would also recommend this to anyone who would want to learn more about another religion like Islam or anyone researching conflicts between religious groups because of the details of why and by who these Christian martyrs were being punished.

I absolutely loved this book! It gave me an idea of what is really going on in some places of the world. Some of these Christians with their undying love for our God are simply amazing. And what some of them went through, when they could have just said, “I’m not a Christian” seems totally unbearable for the average human being. One girl that really stood out to me was tortured by communists for well over a few months. She was only in her teens. She never backed down. Always stood firm in her faith. She died after the “punishment”. Some were burned at the stake some were shot. Others were whipped and left to bleed to death. These stories are amazing. I would defiantly recommend this book to others. Some of them are a little gruesome though. Just like the book says, their stories MUST be told.

After I read Jesus Freaks, my whole perspective in Christianity and Jesus Gospel changed. It's really a mind transforming read it makes value the words and concepts freedom of expression, of choice and beliefs. When I read Jesus Freaks I read it as a religious person when I finished the book I finished it as true Christian! I highly recomnend it to any christian or non-christian it is a wonderful reading of love, passion, pain and the pursue of what really matters in life.

These stories of matyrs will change lives and open the eyes of Americans to how lucky we are to have free religion rules. Everyone might not be able to handle what these people went through. Everyone should read this!

This book really changed my view on Christianity! I had no idea that this happened all over the world. Even at these circumstances it was horrifying. To read how people all over the world die for being a Christian is unbelievable. I highly recommend this book to everybody. It changed my life and I'm sure it will change yours!

The book Jesus Freaks is about people who died for Jesus. People, that do not fear death. People like that are martyrs. Martyrs are people that die because they deny a strongly held belief. There are people martyred from the death of jesus to present times. the only way we can help is to pray to everyone that is in pain or is in prison for teaching the beleif of jesus.

With every page turn I was intrigued. The only time I put the book down was to read my bible or sleep. This book increased my love, faith, and hope in Jesus. It showed me how much God is really there even when we think he isn’t. I gained new courage to spread the word of God where ever I go. I have also become grateful of what I have in America where I can freely express in what I believe in. With every story there was a different author, but they all had one theme, to show the sufferers love for Jesus. It was always very easy to see their love for Jesus. I could almost feel the suffering they were going through. I would always try to put myself in that persons shoes and act as if I was being persecuted. Many times I would feel so heartbroken at the end of the story I would fall to my knees weeping and begin to intercede for the martyrs around the world. So I highly recommend this to even man, woman, and child looking to grow their faith in God.
