Disclaimer

I was sent a free copy of Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright.

On April 18, 2007, three men gave their lives for Jesus Christ. Two Turkish Christians and one German . . . began their day simply wanting to spend time with local men they thought genuinely wanted to study the Bible. Instead, five hostile young men met their kindness and hospitality with betrayal and treachery.Very few followers of Christ in the rest of the world heard the story. Lost in the flood of news in our information age, it appeared to be just another senseless murder.

But the deaths

of Necati Aydin, Ug ur Yuksel and Tilmann Geske, while perhaps ignored or quickly forgotten even among Christians around the world, continue to speak. They proclaim the truth that there are still those among us committed to witnessing to the gospel in difficult locations. They speak loudly of love for Christ and obedience to Him. They testify above the din about their commitment to share Jesus own experience of betrayal and sacrifice that purchased salvation for people from every

Review

First off as I wrote at the top of this hub in the disclaimer, "I was sent a free copy of Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright in exchange only for my honest and unbiased review of Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright."

Prior to reading Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright I had never heard of James Wright. Now I will admit that this is not my normal genre, but I just felt like trying something new. I personally tend to lean more towards fantasy, Sci-Fi, and mystery.

Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright opens with a title page, a table of contents, a preface, and an introduction. Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright has 19 chapters in it. The print of Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright is a nice change from most books that have tiny print, the print in this book is a bit larger than most books, but not too large. The chapters are nicely separated with how each chapter has its own plot/topic/story/idea.

Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright is an easy read with how James Wright's style of writing helps everything to flow together seamlessly without any bumps along the path. The style of writing uses the correct amount of emotion to not make the reader feel to overwhelmed while still showing the sadness involved in the deaths of the men.

Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright opened my eyes to the deaths that happen in other countries in relation to Christianity. It is not a topic that I ever thought about before, I mean I know about the deaths that happened in the Bible, but I had never really thought that people were dying for Christ in other countries before.

Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright leaves the reader with a sense of sadness, understanding, and belief in God. While I found myself saddened my the truths shown in this book I also left Martyrs of Malatya by James Wright feeling hopeful that things could change. I am glad that I decided to take the time to read and review this book and I hope you do to.
