About the Edition

With tens of millions killed and thousands of Catholics incarcerated because of rigged trials, China under Mao's dictatorship was the Asian version of the Nazi concentration camps and the Soviet Gulag. It's one of the darkest moments in Church history one that continues to be played out to this day through a historic abuse of power and a seemingly endless hunt for believers in Jesus Christ and His Church.

Now the stories of these brave Catholic "counter-revolutionaries" are brought to you for the first time. These four autobiographical testimonies will leave you speechless and inspired. You'll witness the endless strength and hope these brave men displayed despite years of shocking psychological and physical abuse.

Nothing short of miraculous, you'll hear their miraculous stories in the face of hunger, torture, interrogation, indoctrination, and the humiliation of the "people's trials." There emerged from these souls the crystalline faith of those brave enough to accept their own Calvary for fidelity to Christ without ever becoming slaves of hatred.
