Tortured for Christ made an impact on my life as a recently convertedteenager in the sixties. I welcome this new edition of Tortured for Christ and pray that its storywill shake many twenty first century Christians out of their complacencytowards those who around the world today are still tortured for theirChristian witness. * Rev John S. Smith, UK Director, Evangelical Allian * This book was singularly instrumental in awaking the conscience of the freeworld to the horrors experienced by our brothers and sisters behind the ironcurtain. I remember reading the book many years ago and being deeply movedand convicted. Millions of others were as well. * Charles W. Colson, Prison Fellowship Ministries * It's a Christian classic. Approach withprayer. It could change your life. * Rob Frost * When you have read this book, pass it to your children. Nogeneration should miss this story. * Rob Parsons *

The joy of people who hear the gospel and are changed by it, despite the persecution, is amazing and makes those of us who live in comfort in this country feel shame. These people in all persecuted countries need our prayer ans support.
"Extreme Devotion" from Voice of the Martyrs is an excellent daily devotional book on the theme of faithfulness amid threat of imprisonment, torture, or death. I find it most encouraging to read.
The second greatest commandment instructs us to love our neighbors as ourselves. The scriptures also tell us to honor all men and to promote unity among the brethren. The Underground Church, as described in this book, seems to have mastered this in a way that is inconceivable for those on the outside looking in. This book challenges us to reevaluate petty gripes that hinder our ability to love one another, not to mention the lost.
Finally, this book also challenges Christians in the West, particularly American Christians, to see the Body as a much larger organism, a global one. We are challenged to pray for and support the brethren in various parts of the world, as the scriptures call for us to do, especially the Underground Church.
So powerful. In the right hands.
