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.
Thinking further topics and a timeline are features of the series and are included in this reprint.
