Tortured for Christ, Paperback
2.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


This classic story of amazing faith in shocking circumstances has been updated for a new generation.

Its message remains urgent and relevant: thousands of Christians are still persecuted and tortured around the world today, suffering solely for their belief in Jesus Christ.

Richard Wurmbrand endured months of solitary confinement, years of periodic physical torture, constant suffering from hunger and cold, the anguish of brainwashing and mental cruelty.

His captors lied to his wife, saying he was dead. Yet he went on to tell the West the truth about Christianity behind the Iron Curtain.

Millions of people have been touched by this story, and thirty years after its first publication it is now updated with a new foreword by Rob Frost, a picture section and details of the final years of Wurmbrand's life.

Review by

The author was an atheist Jew before he converted to Christianity under the Nazis and became a pastor. He writes: "The Nazi terror was great, but only a taste of what was to come under the Communists." He endured fourteen years of Communist imprisonment and torture in his homeland of Romania. This is his story, and it should be read by every Christian.

Review by

Not the best book I've ever read. I felt it wasn't written in the most effective way. I found myself just skipping over huge portions because it was so dry.
