Tortured for Christ

I received this book FREE a little while back because I get the Voice of the Martyrs monthly newsletter and this was something they were offering. I've just begun to read it this last week. It is an awesome book!

This tells the story of Richard Wurmbrand, the founder of The Voice of the Martyrs. Here is what it says on the back of the book:
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 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.

If you would like a copy of this book, go here or let me know and I can request one for you but I would need your information.
