From the oppression and terror of the killing fields in Cambodia, this is the story of how one man's conversion led to a rebirth of faith that brought hope to a nation. Commissioned by Communists to spy on a Christian evangelistic crusade, Barnabas Mam instead discovered Jesus and came to faith in Him. After spending four years in prison camps at the hands of the Khmer Rouge Barnabas emerged as one of only 200 surviving Christians in all of Cambodia. God raised him up to became the foremost evangelist and church planter in a land broken by genocide. An inspiring story on a personal, church, and national level, this is more than a narrative--it's a blueprint for success for church growth of the most powerful kind.


Church Behind the Wire: A Story of Faith in the Killing Fields

Church Behind the Wire: A Story of Faith in the Killing Fields. by Barnabas Mam and Kitti Murray. Commissioned by Communists to spy on a Christian evangelistic crusade, Barnabas Mam instead discovered Jesus and came to faith in Him. After spending four years in prison camps at the hands of the Khmer Rouge Barnabas emerged as one of only 200 surviving Christians in all of Cambodia. God raised him up to became the foremost evangelist and church planter in a land broken by genocide.

Church Behind the Wire book. The story of how God used Barnabas Mam to raise up the Cambodian church after the killing fields is remarkable. It's even more remarkable for how God got him there, through the prison camps and threats of death. The writing itself on this book is not what makes it great, it is the amazing story.

The "Church Behind the Wire" by Barnabas Mam is a book that exudes hope out of situations where there seems to be little. Mam has obviously survived some experiences and conditions that were more than a little difficult, yet it is obvious he remains thankful for the life God has given him and strives to be a positive and upbeat contributor to the lives of others. Americans could take more than just a page or a thought from this heart warming and profound story of one man and his family battling the forces of evil and coming through victorious by the power of the Living God.

BARNABAS MAM has been AFCI¿s Regional Director for Asia since 2007 and is one of only 200 Christians to survive the Killing Fields of Pol Pot. He joined the Communist party as a teenager and was converted to Christ while spying on a Christian evangelistic meeting in the early 1970's. He was later arrested and sent to the Killing Fields where he spent four years in captivity. After his release Barnabas was forced to flee the country where he spent another eight years in a refugee camp in Thailand where he began the ministry of church-planting.

Talk about Church Behind the Wire: A Story of Faith in the Killing Fields

I would recommend reading this book, at least the first 12 chapters or so. The church of the west is far too comfortable in its present mind set. As a Christian you need to relate to what Christianity really means under persecution. This book at least gives you something to think about.

My concern over this book is what I would call the tendency to write an autobiography about oneself. The danger is to build a universe of experience with the writer at the center of it. I am afraid that is exactly what eventually occurs here. Instead of seeing the writer as part of the overall Cambodian outreach we maybe lead to view him in higher terms than we should.

My wife became a Christian in Khao-I-Dang Refugee Camp at the same time the writer was living there. Until I mentioned the name Barnabas Mam she had never known him or seen him. There is a larger Christian community ministering in Cambodia than what this book would imply. I would suggest you read `Killing Fields, Living Fields / Faith in Cambodia' by Don Cormack for a broader history of the Cambodian Christian movement.

If you are a Christian pray for the countryside pastors who daily devote their lives to 5 or 6 local churches. They may never get books written by them. They are the real heroes of the Cambodian church.

Amazing story about a time in history which should not be forgotten. This book shows what happens when the ideological ideas of one man can lead to the insanity of the mob that follow him blindly. In such darkness it's difficult to believe that light can still shine, but it did, and still does. The only true light that never changes and cannot be snuffed out.

The "Church Behind the Wire" by Barnabas Mam is a book that exudes hope out of situations where there seems to be little. Mam has obviously survived some experiences and conditions that were more than a little difficult, yet it is obvious he remains thankful for the life God has given him and strives to be a positive and upbeat contributor to the lives of others.

We, U.S. Americans could take more than just a page or a thought from this heart warming and profound story of one man and his family battling the forces of evil and coming through victorious by the power of the Living God. I commend Mam for his effort in sharing his life experiences and for the ongoing desire he obviously has that more might know Jesus as a result of the power God has put within Barnabas. I give this book FIVE STARS because it inspires me to be all I can be as well. Read it! You will be glad you did.

Tremendous story of Christian faith and perseverance during the Cambodian civil war and refugee crisis. Amazing to see good at work through Barnabas in all the trials he faces.

Persecution is a present reality for many people. Barnabas Mam in his book, Church Behind the Wire, helps us understand how one can go through such an experience and come out on the other side with a vision of God's mercy, grace and goodness. Having worked directly with Barnabas for several years as International Director of AFCI, I know that the words written here accurately reflect his life and commitment. Because of what he suffered, and how he handled it, the inspiration gained from this book can be instructive in the way we choose to deal with adversity. In addition, reading this book will give insight into one of the greatest genocides of the last century and also provide hope for those who are suffering today.

I have read a number of books about the Killing Fields. This is the VERY BEST one that I have ever read.

Barnabas Mam's first person account is well written and moving, with the right mix of personal and historical information.

Having seen the "Killing Fields" in Cambodia I found the insights and experiences given in the book by Barnabas Mam were a challenge to us who have lived in relative security all our lives.

I recommend it as a very good read.
Having been to Cambodia a number of times with humanitarian teams, and having been to some of the historical sites including the Killing Fields, it is with pleasure that I recommend this book for the personal story of a man and his family living within a country in turmoil during the time of Pol Pot. Out of grief and sorrow comes healing and reconciliation from a power beyond himself.
