Tortured for Christ
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 brain-washing and mental cruelty - these are the experiences of a Romanian pastor during his fourteen 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, 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.
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 - Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship
The written and spoken message of Rev. Wurmbrand is one which needs to be published and broadcast through every available channel of communication today. We thank God for the eloquent pleas and warning sounded out by his powerful best-seller, Tortured for Christ. - D. James Kennedy, Ph.D., Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church
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
