Arrested by the Government of Romania in the 1960s, Richard Wurmbrand was convicted of a crime - Loving Jesus. Using a flashback technique Catherine Mackenzie retells Richard's gripping, and at times gruesome story. Despite suffering years of mental and physical torture, God used Richard to witness to many people from prison guards to government officials. Even after his release from prison Richard prayed that if God could use him to reach others for Christ, to send him back. God heard his prayer and Richard was re- arrested and sent to prison for another period of torture. His story is inspirational.

Review quote

The story of Richard Wurmbrand's imprisonment and torture by the Secret Police in Romania is vividly told. Wurmbrand was wonderfully upheld by the grace of God, despite prolonged inhumane treatment and brain-washing techniques. Reading the book should make us value more than ever the freedom we enjoy and so often take for granted.

The author, a young person herself, writes especially for younger folk but those more advanced in years will find the book just as interesting and informative. -- The Gospel Magazine "If you like this, you'll love this!

Check out Ten Girls who made a difference by Irene Howat. This includes a chapter on Sabina Wurmbrand, Richard's wife." -- Catherine Mackenzie, CF4K Editor ... a classic story of one man's faith against all odds. Though these events happened some years ago, this kind of persecutionstill goes on in many parts of the world. A challenging and inspiring read. -- Christian Herald
