Tortured for Christ by Rev. Richard Wurmbrand

IMG_2583

This classic story of amazing faith in shocking circumstances has been updated for a new generation. Its message remains urgent and relevant: thousands of Christians are still persecuted and tortured around the world today, suffering solely for their belief in Jesus Christ. Richard Wurmbrand endured months of solitary confinement, years of periodic physical torture, constant suffering from hunger and cold, the anguish of brainwashing and mental cruelty. His captors lied to his wife, saying he was dead. Yet he went on to tell the West the truth about Christianity behind the Iron Curtain. Millions of people have been touched by this story, and thirty years after its first publication it is now updated with a new foreword by Rob Frost, a picture section and details of the final years of Wurmbrand’s life.

I found this to be a very compelling read. It reminded me of Gulag Archepelligo but a much shorter version. Compelling, heartwrenching, & happiness for those that sought the word and held on to their faith!

Godspeed & Good Reads!
