I originally posted the following on the blog at www.pilgrimslight.org in December of 2011. Today I saw an ad where you can get a free copy of the book. It is brought to you by Voice of the Martyrs (VOM). If you sign up you will receive their free newsletter. It is available on kindle as well for a price. I would encourage everyone to read this book if you haven’t already. See the link at the bottom of the page to request a free copy.
This is one of the most intense books I have read in a long time. This is a book written by Richard Wurmbrand a Romanian pastor who was tortured in prison for 14 years by the communists. He talks of how the underground church in Romania operated, how they witnessed and preached under communist oppression. What happened to them in prison. Everything. He would have continued in Romania, but the underground church told him to go to the West and tell everyone what was going on behind the iron curtain. He left Romania in 1965 to do just that. Even after he left they said they would have him kidnapped or killed if he spoke out against the regime. A very challenging read.
So after all he suffered, was he bitter? Did he want to get the dirty bums who did those terrible things to him? No, he wanted to go back and tell them of Jesus. He understood that they needed to follow the Lord. This book has so many great lessons, and it is out of print as far as I can tell. Who is to say that this could not happen again? Are we prepared? The world is going in a dark direction. This book really helped me know just a little bit more how to stand, and what to stand against. I highly recommend it to fellow believers. It sold 2,000,000 copies and now who knows about it? It should not be forgotten. Click on the image below to download to Kindle. You will not regret reading this book.
