Tortured For Christ

TORTURED FOR CHRIST is written by Richard Wurmbrand the founder of The Voice of the Martyrs. The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit interdenominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide.

TORTURED FOR CHRIST is an account of Richard Wurmbrand a christian living in the midst of a communist environment. TORTURED FOR CHRIST is not a spectacle of curiosity but an account of the true horrors many Christian's still face in countries of opposition to the faith. Richard Wurmbrand suffered much at the hands of the communist for refusing to denounce his profession of faith in Christ Jesus. He was made to suffer through beatings, brainwashing and tortures of all kinds. He was faced with betrayal and humiliation. Through it all he grew stronger instead of weaker in his faith towards Christ.

Richard Wurmbrand was no extraordinary man with supernatural abilities. He was however a man who believed in the supernatural ability of God to save. Richard Wurmbrand remained in communist prison for a total of fourteen years before being ransomed. This is not a story but a true life account of a man led by the Holy Spirit and pushed to love in order that those very beings who stood laughing, torturing and ridiculing him would come to know Christ.

Richard Wurmbrand's TORTURED FOR CHRIST has become a voice alerting millions to the opposition many Christian's face.
