This is a story that I don't think I will ever forget. A story of courage, faith and endurance through horrible and unspeakable persecution, and a story of hope.
It caused me to realize what many are going through in countries where freedom to share a Christian witness is forbidden. These Christians though are standing firm in their testimony for their Lord.
I can understand how and why the "Voice of the Martyrs" began and it gave me pause to realize how little I knew about what other Christians are experiencing around the world. I encourage all to read and be moved beyond words to pray and help those who are a part of the "underground church" around the world. This is one powerful book! It will move you to tears. It will make you laugh. It is an astounding account of God's Awesome Grace and Power! I would recommend this book for every Christian.
Probably one of the most shaping books I've ever read. Years after I first read this book I am still brought to tears thinking about the sacrifices that brothers and sisters in the faith have made and continue to make.
A Must Read. A hard book to read, but if a man who has endured this much pain and sorrow can still love his fellow men, well, it inspires me to try harder to find what God sees in others and to see them that way. This is a short biographical account of a Romanian Pastor imprisoned and tortured for his Christian faith by the Communists just after the second world war.
He spent a total of 14 years in prison, was eventually ransomed and released and moved to the West to encourage others to support "The Underground persecuted Church" in many countries. He founded "Voice of the Martyrs," which continues to work in countries around the world to this day. Although the author states that he cannot go into graphic detail about the torture he endured at the hands of evil men. He proceeds to give seriously disturbing detail which some readers may not appreciate.
He was placed in solitary confinement for 3 years! We were unimaginably hungry; we had been drugged until we acted like idiots. We were as weak as skeletons. The Lord's prayer was much too long for us- we could not concentrate enough to say it. My only prayer repeated again and again was, "Jesus, I love You.
The detail is not in any way included for entertainment or to assist the author in obtaining spiritual one-up-man-ship. I believe the author's main purpose in writing these things was to try and shock people into doing something to help the persecuted church.
His passion, dedication and commitment to the cause resonate throughout the book and are compelling. Many Christian's have been and will continue to be seriously convicted about their own roles in this Gospel and help ministry to those that are suffering for Christ, this can only be a good thing. His attitude is that they are unconcerned, indifferent, apathetic and lacking in prayer for their brethren in crisis in other parts of the world.
If they are we should seek to address them and if they are not we should disregard them. Wurmbrand's opinion about Western Christian's may or may not be accurate, in my view it is pretty accurate and has become more so in recent decades as this book was written a long time ago. But, we cannot disregard his experiences and fail to help the persecuted church based on our prejudice towards him as an individual and how he chose to express himself.
The things he experienced are happening around the world and the underground church does need help. To those that don't believe the content of the book which I also read in some reviews. I can understand the skepticism due to various Christian Biographical books being removed from sale due to the "made-up" stories. Wurmbrand has on his body the scars from the torture he endured at the hands of his persecutors as he revealed this during a public meeting.
Again I believe he did this to capture the attention of people rather than for personal gain. I tend to believe the content of this book and that the author who has since died was a sincere soul seeking to follow Jesus and being willing to give up everything for that call.
Ultimately only God knows his heart but we can all be challenged by his story and encouraged to get more involved in helping those suffering persecution in any way that we can. I would encourage adult Christians to read this book. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.

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. Frequent mentions.
