Pray for the Persecuted Church: Part Three
Richard Wurmbrand dared to proclaim his loyalty to Christ rather than bow to a government hostile to the gospel. For this, he spent a total of 14 years in prison, two of those years alone in a solitary cell. As he sat alone, he dreamed of a mission that would one day help Christians like him. Pastor Wurmbrand would be the one person who would tell the world the truth about Christianity behind the Iron Curtain. Millions of people have been touched by his story.
We are proud to support the work and ministry of “Voice of the Martyrs,” and would like to share in the opportunity to have Richard Wurmbrand’s book “Tortured for Christ” sent to you, and your friends, absolutely free of charge.
“This book was singularly instrumental in awakening the conscience of the free world to the horrors experienced by our brothers and sisters behind the Iron Curtain.”
Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship
Months of solitary confinement, years of periodic physical torture, constant suffering from hunger and cold, the anguish of brainwashing and mental cruelty – these are the experiences of Richard Wurmbrand, a Romanian pastor, during his 14 years in Communist prisons.
His crime, like that of thousands of others, was his fervent belief in Jesus Christ and his public witness concerning that faith.
Meeting in homes, in basements, in the woods – sometimes daring to preach on public street corners – these faithful souls persisted in their Christian witness knowing full well the ultimate cost of their actions.
Tortured for Christ is their story – a classic account of courage, tenacious faith and unbelievable endurance. This history of the Underground Church reflects the struggle in many parts of the world – a struggle that continues to this day.
“Tortured for Christ is still as important today as it was 30 years ago in calling attention to the plight of persecuted Christians in the modern age.”
Frank R. Wolf, U.S. Congressman
Indeed, the message of “Tortured for Christ” remains urgent and relevant today, as thousands of Christians are still being persecuted and tortured around the world today, suffering solely for their belief in Jesus Christ.
