Product Description

Review

When you have read this book, pass it to your children. No
generation should miss this story.―Rob Parsons

It's a Christian classic. Approach with
prayer. It could change your life.―Rob Frost

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

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

Product Description

One Man Who Dared to Stand Up

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.

While American Christians waste untold millions of dollars every year pandering to their own vanities (multimillion-dollar megachurches, senior superpastors, trying to elect "Christian" politicians, etc.), most of the Church around the world is suffering persecution, discrimination and privation for the Lord Jesus Christ. During the last century, God raised up a man to come to the West and wake us up.
Tortured for Christ is an autobiographical work, but it goes far beyond biography. Richard Wurmbrand (1909-2001) was not only brilliant, but also learned. As will be gleaned from his many works, his knowledge of most matters was encyclopedic. In discussing the questions of persecution and suffering, he was moreover able to process this vast knowledge through his Jewish worldview, which unlike the prevailing Western worldview involves a great deal of non-linear thinking. Because of this, he was able to posit penetrating questions and produce poignant answers that never would have occurred to many of his readers.
Wurmbrand was not only a pastor, but an outstanding apologist for the Christian faith. Yet his defense of the faith was never merely intellectual. I am convinced he understood that theology worthy of the name must be forged in the fires of persecution. When Christians are not called on to suffer for their faith, they begin turning their attention to trivial controversies (the Calvinist-Armininan and textual/translational squabbles going on today are examples). When one's own life and the credibility of the gospel are at stake, the issues change.
Richard Wurmbrand was one of the first believers to publicize the plight of the Persecuted and Suffering Church in our generation. In doing so, he has helped to refocus our attention onto the essentials of the gospel.

Greetings,
Not many people know about the inprisonment of religious people under the law of the Communist government. Richard Wurmbrand takes you into the world of what really had gone on. After being in prison for 14 years, all for being a christian and starting an Christian Underground, he devoted his life to sending out this message.
I had the holy pleasure of meeting this great man, and actually having him over my house. My father, who is also christian and romanian, did human rights work in Romania, and gave speeches all over the world about Communism, that is how they met. I highly reccomend this book to strong and willful christians, and christians who are questioning their faith, whenever i'm in doubt about my christian beliefs I just think about what Mr. Wurmbrand went through, and still kept his faith.

What a powerful book! Wurmbrand holds nothing back as he relates his many years in a Communist prison. Beaten, starved, totured... at yet he still came out of prison preaching about God's never-failing love.
In his son's book BETWEEN HAMMER & SICKLE (by Mihai Wurmbrand) he gives a most powerful and awe-inspiring message to his son:
"Mihai, you know that in prison I had no Bible. I have forgotten it. I have forgotten all my theology. But these things I know for sure. First, there is a living God and he is our loving father. Second, Jesus Christ is the savior and bridegroom of our souls. Third, the Holy Spirit works in us to make us more and more Christ-like. Fourth, there exists beyond question an eternal life. And lastly, love is the best of ways. This is what I have learned in prison."
If that doesn't stir you, what does?
...A Christian-Jew in a Communist Country. If you think you need an example of a true Believer, then you should definitely read TORTURED FOR CHRIST and BETWEEN HAMMER & SICKLE.

This book is eye-opening to the truth of religious freedom in other countries. This book is higly recommendable for all Christians who want to grow in faith and in love for God and for people. This book will confront you and purify because it is anointed by the Holy Spirit. It is one of the best books I have ever read.

When I read this book it did not take long for me to be overwhelmed by the stories. Richard Wurmbrand is not only an incredible writer, but is an incredible man of God. He talks about how hard it was to endure the Communist desire to see him deny his faith, but because of the strength given him by Christ, He was able to stand firm in his faith and never budge. He truly is a hero of the faith,and this book is what first sparked my desire to find out what is going on in the world as far as persecution is concerned. Richard Wurmbrand is now my personal hero, and is an incredible encouragement to me. Christ, through him, has taught me that I don't truly understand what it means to count everything else as worthless compared to Christ. This is a must read book, along with the sequal to "Tortured for Christ", the book "From Suffering to Triumph".
