This innovative study examines the shortcomings evinced by many modern studies of religious persecution. Noting the gaps in current theological re-flection, Tieszen offers a theological framework in which the religious perse-cution of Christians can be properly and theologically understood and respon-ded to. Perhaps most importantly, a definition of persecution is put forth that seeks to incorporate necessary and often over-looked elements. Readers will find their present understanding of persecution challenged, their awareness of the event heightened, and their ability to respond to persecution invigorated. While many have written about religious violence and persecution, Charles Tieszen here refocuses on some basic definitions and theological reflections. He deftly offers several key insights … And he correctly points out the need for Christians to be more reflective about the role of persecution, both in their own lives and around the world. Todd M. Johnson, Center for the Study of Global Christianity, South Hamilton, MA, USA Charles L. Tieszen (*1978) was formerly a research assistant at the Center for the Study of Global Christianity.
