Soldats de Jésus: Les évangéliques à la conquête de la France
If you can read French, this is the most accessible introduction to the evangelical world in France. The author is a journalist and, if she has any personal religious convictions, these remain well hidden in the book. It's a well balanced study that leaves plenty of space for evangelicals to present their views. You can buy the book in paper or electronic form from Amazon.

In the Steps of the Huguenots
France Mission supporter Monica Stringer's latest book is available in both print and Kindle format from Amazon. Here's a brief synopsis: "The story of the Huguenots is one of immense persecution accompanied by extraordinary faith and courage spanning more than 100 years. This book draws from their story explaining some of the background and subsequent exile into many nations that welcomed their Protestant heritage and so profited from their faith, integrity, expertise and skills, including Britain. Today this is largely forgotten but God does not forget. The author relates this to modern day prophecies which show that God wants Britain to return the blessings to France by supporting and praying for Christian work there. Be inspired to be a part of this."
