An Unlikely Historian of Revival: Interview with Eugene Bach

Eugene’s office What has been the most challenging part of writing these books?

Eugene Bach: The most challenging part about writing these books has been writing these books. I have written all of my books on location. I write about Iran in Iran. I write about North Korea in North Korea.

For the sake of security, I often clean my computer and erase files from my hard drive so that they will not be discovered by the police. This has led to many occasions where I have accidentally erased entire files of finished chapters on my computer thinking that I have had a backup when I did not. You would think that I would learn my lesson and grow wiser. I have not. They say that wisdom comes with age, but in my case age came alone.

I have lost more than I have published. What has been the most rewarding part of writing them?

Eugene Bach: Seeing readers from around the world exposed to the lives and testimonies of the amazing heroes that I get the privilege to witness on a daily basis. In addition to prayer what are some of the greatest needs of the Christians in these lands of persecution?

Eugene Bach: Bibles. What lessons can believers in the West learn from their brothers and sisters in the Persecuted Church?

Eugene Bach: “Though you slay me, yet will I hope in Him.” – Job 13:15

Do we in the West have the kind of faith that loves so deeply that it goes against self-preservation? What writing projects are you currently working on?

Eugene Bach: I am currently working on two books and a series of children’s books for 2018.

The children’s books are a follow up on our first release called Tales from Fufu’s Fores: The Courage to Obey. These are a collection of true stories of modern day missionary heroes that provide amazing role models for our children. Each book in the series tells a gripping story from the front lines of missions about God’s power and saving grace in places like China, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Pakistan, and many more.

Chasing Revival is a road trip Bible study that is accompanied with a 9-part video. It is a journey around the world following the history of revival – from the moment the Great Commission was uttered on the Mount of Olives to present-day China.
