Meet the Author

Pastor Richard Wurmbrand (1909–2001) was an evangelical minister who endured fourteen years of Communist imprisonment and torture in his homeland of Romania. Few names are better known in Romania, where he is one of the most widely recognized Christian leaders, authors, and educators.

In 1945, when the Communists seized Romania and attempted to control the churches for their purposes, Richard Wurmbrand immediately began an effective, vigorous “underground” ministry to his enslaved people as well as the invading Russian soldiers. He was arrested in 1948, along with his wife, Sabina. His wife was a slave-laborer for three years on the Danube Canal. Richard Wurmbrand spent three years in solitary confinement, seeing no one but his Communist torturers. He was then transferred to a group cell, where the torture continued for five more years.

Due to his international stature as a Christian leader, diplomats of foreign embassies asked the Communist government about his safety and were informed that he had fled Romania. Secret police, posing as released fellow-prisoners, told his wife of attending his burial in the prison cemetery. His family in Romania and his friends abroad were told to forget him because he was dead.

After eight-and-a-half years in prison, he was released and immediately resumed his work with the Underground Church. A couple of years later, in 1959, he was re-arrested and sentenced to twenty-five years in prison.

Mr. Wurmbrand was released in a general amnesty in 1964, and again continued his underground ministry. Realizing the great danger of a third imprisonment, Christians in Norway negotiated with the Communist authorities for his release from Romania. The Communist government had begun “selling” their political prisoners. The “going price” for a prisoner was $1,900; their price for Wurmbrand was $10,000.

In May 1966, he testified before the U.S. Senate’s Internal Security Subcommittee and stripped to the waist to show the scars of eighteen deep torture wounds covering his torso. His story was carried across the world in newspapers throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Wurmbrand was warned in September 1966 that the Communist regime of Romania planned to assassinate him; yet he was not silent in the face of this death threat.

    Tortured for Christ

    This book is basically an autobiography by a man who lived in Rumania during the time when the Communists took over the country. He had recently come to Christ, and was preaching at the time. As you may know, the Communists did not approve of religion of any sort. They told him to stop preaching the gospel, but he refused. For this, he was thrown into prison and brutally tortured, yet he held strong to God. I, for the most part, enjoyed this book. However, there are things that some readers might question. I will be frank: some passages may seem 'preachy' to a non-Christian reader. Keep in mind that the writer was trying to spread the gospel. Do not be offended; offence was not his intent. At that time, many Western Churches were, essentially, looking the other way from the struggles of these oppressed peoples, and it may seem as if Wurmbrand comes down on the Western churches. But one must understand that he was trying to promote change; to get people to see the injustice. I liked this book, and I would hope that someone else would enjoy it as well, so I warn people who read this book to remember the context. Thank you.

    Eye Opener

    Tortured for Christ is not just a book for Christians. It is a great historical reference, written by a Jewish man R. Wurmbrand. He tells a story that never hit main stream news do to political interference. One will discover a whole chunk of history they never read in their text books in school.

    Thought Provoking

    Those written about put "prosperity gospel" believers to shame. This is a must-read for those wanting to delve deeper into living for Christ. I am humbled.

    Tortured for Christ

    This book is awsome and sad. I have cried reading this book. This book open your eyes to what is really going on in other countries concerning christianity and the people that are on the battlefield for the Lord that's dieing and being tortured for Christ sakes but they still have joy it is amazing. It has taught me of God's love for people that hurt us and has given me a heart for jews.

    Good book for a dollar

    One the one hand to read into a part of history that most americans know little about makes this a good read about Pastor Wurmbrand, the torture he went through was horrible & I won't make light of it. But on the other hand it wasn't very detailed & at times some of the things he had describe were on the vague side. I can't complain the eBook cost a dollar & it was a short read, it took about one week to read through it. I was still curious after reading the book so I found more info on-line about the life of this dear pastor & there was even a Facebook page of the pastor & there were some color pictures of the places the pastor talked about in the book which helped me understand his story better.

    Excellent! A must-read for all Christians!

    Rev. Richard Wurmbrand's biography is a stirring challenge for American Christians to open their eyes to the reality of suffering experienced by persecuted Christians overseas. As one who was brutally tortured in prison solely for his Christian faith, Rev. Wurmbrand has earned the respect to be heard. After his release from prision, he eventually founded 'The Voice of the Martyrs,' a non-profit Christian organization devoted to informing the world about the existence of religious persecution & to supporting the persecuted believers & their families. He has testified before Congress, while revealing the physical scars of his body, regarding the existence of religious persecution by certain totalitarian governments. Rev. Wurmbrand encourages the Christian Church not to forget our fellow persecuted believers, but to support them with prayer, practical material needs, & Bibles. This book is obviously written for the Christian audience but human rights advocates will find this book relevant for our times. Times that include the Afghan Christian, Mr. Rahman, with similar threats of death & abuse due to one's Christian beliefs.

    Very Good but a bit out of date in that it is nearly 50 years old

    Good for those interested in the history of religious problems during the time of Communism at it worst in Europe.

    Fantastic in print!

    This book has been used in places where persecution was coming in order to prepare the people. Wurrmband went through it all. Only sometimes, these books have printing errors online...

    The author does do a good job at times of refocusing us on thing

    The author does do a good job at times of refocusing us on things that are truly important. He speaks of being tortured for years and praying and loving his torturers and speaking to them about Christ in hopes that they might come to know Jesus. He says that we are to love the sinner but hate the evil.

    On page 51 the author says: "The value of Bibles smuggled in by these men cannot be understood by an American or an English Christian who `swims' in Bibles." That truly is something to ponder. We live in a place that has an abundance of Bibles and many people own more than one and yet we tend to be illiterate when it comes to the Bible. So he does make good points and has given me a lot to think about.

    You really will do well to read this book and perhaps make it a habit to read even once a year a book on martyred Christians to help keep in perspective what is really important.
