God’s Double Agent: The True Story of a Chinese Christian’s Fight for Freedom by Bob Fu and Nancy French

Mixed Media

Growing up in China after Mao’s socially disruptive Great Leap Forward in 1958, Bob Fu believed the only way to overcome poverty was to become a millionaire or a high-ranking Communist official.

But God had other plans for Bob.

After Bob participated in the student uprising in Tiananmen Square, he was registered as a counter-revolutionary and became suicidal. When an American teacher introduced him to Christ, he became a believer.

In an ironic twist of circumstances, Bob obtained a daytime job teaching English to high-ranking Communist leaders. At night, he and his wife, Heidi, trained members of the illegal underground church movement. When discovered, Bob and Heidi were sent to prison. Eventually freed, they escaped to the United States, where they established ChinaAid, a nonprofit organization that advocates for persecuted people in China.

God’s Double Agent reads like fast-paced fiction. Sadly, the harrowing story is an all-too-real reminder of the plight of China’s persecuted people. (Baker)
