In my quest to learn people's stories, I am reading "Tortured for Christ" by Richard Wurmbrand. He is the founder of The Voice of the Martys, and this book is part of his story from prison.

You may remember a post I wrote about this organization and the book giveaway a few months back.

I love reading, and I never pass up a free book. Well, it has been sitting on my shelf for a while now, and I figured it was time to learn Richard Wurmbrand's story.

Can I just say, I just finished chapter two, and I can already say with assurance that you need to go out and get this book right now.

Right now.

My world has been rocked.

And I have only read two chapters.

R.W. writes in plain language that makes me feel like he is sitting at my table and sharing with me personally the most horrid and beautiful things I have ever heard.

Now I understand why they are giving the book away for free. It is something every Christian needs to read. I am tempted to share with you some of the things I have read, in two chapters, that have convicted me and encouraged me, brought me to tears, and brought me to my knees. But I could never do them justice.

You can go here to request your free copy of this book. And you can also order copies for your friends. If I knew your address I would send you one right now.

So, if you are looking for something to rock your world, read this book. You will not be disapointed.

Incredible man! His book "Marx and Satan" was incredibly eye opening.

I know I should read this book. I get really fearful whenever I hear about stories of torture, especially for Christ. Its so incredibly dark and scary...I can't imagine anyone going through it. Its even hard to think about Jesus going through what he did. Like, I cant handle horror stories. But, I know I should read this. Probably the fear I have is from the devil anyways. But, its so worth it. Nothing compares to Christ and the life we have with Him.
