Story number 2 for 20 Mar 2003

(International)–Next, with war drums beating, and news of troubled times at the forefront, the international Christian community is facing challenge with the boldness borne of struggle. In that light, the Bible League’s Dave Stravers says they’re working to make sure believers worldwide are equipped with their best tool, the Scriptures. “We’re focusing our efforts in regions of conflict where we have very aggressive, high objective ministries to prepare God’s Word and train people to use it in evangelism; places where there’s a lot of activity in the Muslim population.” Stravers says while it appears that persecution against the church is on the rise, it’s also a matter of perspective. “The global attention given to this is really the new thing for Americans, and it may even be a good thing, because it may help us believers, here in the United States, become more aware of a spiritual battle that’s been raging for a long time.”
