Under Caesar’s Sword: What Christians Do When They Are Persecuted and Why it Matters

How do Christians respond when they are persecuted? What can the rest of the world do to help them? The lecture will look closely at these questions through presenting the results of the Under Caesar’s Sword project, a systematic first-hand global investigation of Christian responses to persecution conducted by leading scholars of global Christianity. Its eight major findings explore themes such as the role of violence, evangelism, theological perspective, civil society, and history. It will also discuss the project’s advice regarding What is to be done? This advice spans across government, ngo, academic, activist, church, and other sectors.
