If I Perish by Esther Ahn Kim is an amazing biography of a young Korean woman who took a stand for her faith during the Japanese occupation of Korea at the outset of World War 2. Koreans were forced to bow and worship the Japanese god and those who refused were persecuted by torture and imprisoned. This young woman refused to bow to any god but her own and her testimony is simply amazing.
I don’t want to give anyone spoilers so that’s all I’m going to share. I think every Christian should read this book. This young woman truly died to herself and God used her in great and miraculous ways to witness to her fellow Koreans and the Japanese people.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.” – John 12:24
