Taylor’s purpose: Are Christians relying on God for strength to endure persecution?


I hope readers will be reminded of the strength God gives us even under the most extreme persecution

Within the pages of Jana Taylor’s new book, Devotion, ($20.99, paperback, 9781498433129; $9.99, e-book, 9781498433136) readers will discover a fictional story relating to the persecution of Christians who remain strong in their faith – those who fight for freedom in the United States – experiencing the type of persecution seen around the world. Nineteen-year-old Jade struggles with knowing her parents were arrested because they smuggled Scriptures. It left Jade and her sister fighting to survive in the city. She has become a Scripture smuggler, but with the control of the government and its soldiers, can she continue to safely cross Scriptures into the city? Twenty-one-year old Kendrick remembers his life on the streets. But he is no longer in the beaten-down city. He has become a rebel fighter, battling to save what the government has taken – until he meets someone unexpected. Can Kendrick continue to fight against the government and save the one he loves?

“I hope readers will be reminded of the strength God gives us even under the most extreme persecution,” states the author. “Devotion is a vivid reminder to pray continually for the persecuted church everywhere.”
