prayer. It could change your life.―Rob Frost
When you have read this book, pass it to your children. No
generation should miss this story.―Rob Parsons
Tortured for Christ made an impact on my life as a recently converted
teenager in the sixties. I welcome this new edition of Tortured for Christ and pray that its story
will shake many twenty first century Christians out of their complacency
towards those who around the world today are still tortured for their
Christian witness.―Rev John S. Smith, UK Director, Evangelical Allian
This book was singularly instrumental in awaking the conscience of the free
world to the horrors experienced by our brothers and sisters behind the iron
curtain. I remember reading the book many years ago and being deeply moved
and convicted. Millions of others were as well.―Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship Ministries
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 a Romanian pastor during his 14 years in Communist prisons.
His crime, like that of thousands of others, was his fervant belief in Jesus Christ and his public witness concerning that faith.
Meeting in homes, in basements, and in woods--sometimes daring to preach in public on street corners--these faithful souls persisted in their Christian witness knowing full well the ultimate cost of their actions.
This is their story--a classic account of courage, tenacious faith, and unbelievable endurance. This history of the Underground Church reflects the continuing struggle in many parts of the world today.
