One day, being a very convinced atheist, I prayed to God...
"God, I know surely that you do not exist. But if perchance You exist
which I contest, it is not my duty to believe in You; it is your duty
to reveal yourself to me..."
- Richard Wurmbrand


I recall these lines from the autobiography titled Tortured for Christ
and even as I write this review, I feel the urge to read over again,
having read this same book six times in the last two months.

The 161 paperback non-fiction autobiography by Richard Wurmbrand
summarises the life ordeal of a jew atheist turned christian. It
classically covers the principles of endurance in pressure and the
spirit of persecution.


The seven chapters pour his reflections on the persecuted christians
in our society via his imprisonment for fourteen years by the Romanian
secret police and his solitary confinement, the brainwash, torture and
the boldness to share his story.

I will not but cover the review of Charles Colson nor that of Rob
Parsons and Helen Berhane over this work by saying the blood of
bleeding hearts keeps dripping, causing a consciousness that is
evergreen each time a clause in this page is read.


For over fourty years now, Tortured for Christ remains a story that no
generation should miss.
