God's Prisoner: The Story of Richard Wurmbrand

God’s Prisoner: The Story of Richard Wurmbrand

by The Voice of the Martyrs with Cheryl Odden

Hardcover, 42 pages, color illustrations

Richard and Sabina sat in a concert hall filled with pastors, priests, and bishops. One by one, they stood up and praised not God, but a government leader who hated the church.

Sabina leaned over and whispered, “Richard, so many pastors are afraid to stand up for God.”

“If I take a stand, I may be arrested,” said Richard. “This is not the time to be afraid,” replied Sabina.

Richard stood up and walked to the stage. “How can we obey a government that closes our churches and won’t let us own a Bible? We must defend our God!”

The crowd stood up. Some shook their fists and yelled at Richard. Others cheered his courage to stand up for Christ. Richard knew that the police could arrest him any day.

The excerpt above is from God’s Prisoner: The Story of Richard Wurmbrand available at VOM Books.
