The authors endured numerous intense interrogations and poor health because of the lack of adequate medical care and the filthy living conditions, yet they remained firm in their stance for the right to share the story of a forgiving, loving and merciful God. Many conversions were made as they prayed with those who seemed to have little hope.
Eventually, they learned of the outside world's notice of their imprisonment and the pressure being placed on the Iranian government to release them. It was a delicate matter as the Iranians wanted to save face, but eventually the acquittal was obtained and Maryam and Marziyeh were set free. They never gave in to the pressure to deny Christ to save their own lives, even under the threat of execution.Read more ›
Those names, and more, are pretty familiar to those who follow the church, especially the persecuted church. I have something more pressing I ask every time I read of a past martyr or a present martyr for the cause of Christ.
One Question haunts me: Could I take the stand these and thousands of others have? If I was arrested for my faith, put under intense scrutiny, suffering extreme persecution, could I would I be able to remain strong?
My answer? I hope so. But really, how would I know? I won't until or unless I come under that type of fire!
Enter Captive in Iran, a book by two Iranian ladies who became followers of Jesus and were arrested for their faith. Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh converted to Christ from Islam; met at a theology school in Turkey in 2005; then decided to work together by returning to Iran in order to share Jesus. All was going well until one day they were arrested for promoting Christianity. The charges were for apostasy, anti-government activity, and blasphemy, for which they faced execution by hanging. They languished in a detention camp enduring endless questioning and impossible conditions, until being transferred to the dreaded Evin Prison (ironically a prison they could see from their apartment window). They then endured 259 days in Evin while awaiting their "day in court." They were pawns in a very broken and biased court system. Their case garnered international attention thanks to the internet and other media. Appeals were being made by all corners of the world (except the Muslim world) for their freedom. Finally, their freedom became a reality.Read more ›
These amazing two young women send a strong message to the rest of the world the Christian faith is alive and strong in Iran, growing still despite the horrific conditions, bringing hope and love to believers and non believers alike.
"Witness" said Christ...
Locked away but not silenced...
In reading this book you will follow the amazing, often frightening journey of these two Christian friends who found themselves imprisoned in one of the most notorious detention center in Iran. Witnessing and praying for the other inmates trapped inside Evin, they gather those too often invisible almost forgotten faces, lost souls to reveal Christ's true love for his brethren.
To this day, there are hundreds of men and women still held captive in Evin, living in unbelievable conditions, persecuted for their faith and for demanding their rights as citizens of the world.
It is ironic that in being jailed, both friends realized they were "in the best place they had ever been for bearing witness to people hungry for Jesus' gospel". God's will? One for God, zero to the jailers!
In three years time, Maryam and her friend Marziyeh placed New Testaments into the hands of twenty thousands of their countrymen, started two secret places of worship before being detained in Evin in 2009.Read more ›
