The prison official shouts, “Give me their names! Names! Tell us the names” but Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, tied up in a dark-and-dingy Romanian prison torture chamber, remains silent.
His face is bloodied, and his feet scarred from relentless beatings. The guards had offered him a deal: If he hands over the names of Christians to the Communist government, he would get a reduced sentenced – perhaps even be freed. But he refuses.
“It’s only a matter of time,” the prison official tells him. “Wurmbrand . . . Be reasonable. Your life belongs to me now.
A weak Wurmbrand, struggling for each breath, responds, “My life is not my own. I belong to Christ.”
The gut-wrenching and inspirational story of Wurmbrand is well-known to Christians worldwide thanks to his book that shocked the world, Tortured for Christ. Pastor Wurmbrand endured 14 years in a communist prison and became the “voice” of the underground church to the free world.
