[I hope] that His work will be a strong, comforting support to those currently suffering, and for believers in the free world to remember the persecuted church.

Lawrence K. Mok’s new book, When Persecution Causes Pain: A Message from Jesus and Paul, ($14.99, paperback, 9781498400626; $7.99, e-book, 9781498400640) addresses a matter that is, unfortunately, being witnessed throughout mainstream media on a daily basis. The author writes about persecution, specifically delving into what Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul say about it, which makes for a timely reminder. Both Jesus and Paul teach that God's purposes for His persecuted people are to bear witness to the lost world; to transform and make them as His worthy followers; to show His sovereignty in all circumstances; and to demonstrate that He loves and cares for His own people in the midst of a hostile world.
“My hope is that the readers will come to have a better biblical understanding of the New Testament teachings on persecution,” states the author. “[I hope] that His work will be a strong, comforting support to those currently suffering, and for believers in the free world to remember the persecuted church.”
The author has a passion for the persecuted church, and the ongoing sufferings of the persecuted believers have inspired him to do a theological research study on this vital topic of Christian persecution. Lawrence K. Mok earned his Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, Lynchburg, VA. His Doctor of Religious Studies was earned from Trinity Theological Seminary, Newburgh, IN. The degree program is also accredited and endorsed by Canterbury Christ Church University, England. He also holds a doctorate in business administration.
