Shows the big picture.

Excellent book, well written.
1) u will immediately realize how communism & God can not mix.
2) shows big picture. Although we disagree about small things concerning God, love is above all.
3) we (USA) are spoiled with freedom. Don't take it for granted seek to help those those w/o our freedoms find God & the messiah.

Narrator brings it to life

Out of the 100+ books on Audible I've listened to, this is one of the few that I feel is better listening to than reading the book. The narrator brings an authentic accent and pronunciation to the various Russian and Romanian names and speaks with a conviction and fervor to match the author's words. In a world dominated by headlines raging over everything, this book beautifully shows what really matters through all of it.

I don't know where to begin; however, I will say, thank you Jesus for everything... and I mean, EVERYTHING.

I never knew! disclaimer below

Even if you're not a believer. Or maybe you're just curious about Socialism. This is a very powerful book on the strength we all have if we decide to engage it. Honestly, I knew nothing about Socialism or Persecution. (Aside from the heated opinions of people on Facebook) This book doesn't have a bias, it is about one family's journey. This is a must read or listen. I liked the reader so it was a very entertaining listen. If you get to chapter 5 and you haven't found anything life altering, you have to reread it!

I grew up in a Christian household. hearing about persecution. but they have it brought to light this way brings tears to my eyes. pray for our brothers who endure far more than we can ever imagine.

A MUST listen to anybody with sober thinking

What was one of the most memorable moments of Tortured for Christ?

Perseverance and commitment to be faithful of the suffering Christians wherever they suffer.

Any additional comments?

When I listened to the first 10-20 minutes I wanted to return this audiobook and something was holding me from it. If I had returned it I would have made one of the biggest mistakes in my Christian life and I would have missed what I see now as one of the strongest messages of my Christian life. The author said that when after 14 years of prison for his faith he came to the West he suffered more by witnessing what was happening with the Western Church - how the Christians in the West lost their zeal for God's teaching and diluted it with secularism and liberal thinking.
For me it is a wake-up call.
Thank you for this powerful reminder!!!

Very moving

I think there is a lot goes on in the world we don't know about and can't imagine. This book will give you an idea of what suffering there is and how believers get through it
