Today, you can get Richard Wurmbrand’s book In God’s Underground for just  $1 on Kindle.

This is a great way to prepare for International Day of Prayer for the persecuted church (IDOP) that is set to be observed November 4.

 Hebrews 13:3 tells us to: Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.

Becoming familiar with the life and writings of  Richard Wurmbrand is a great way to do this.  From his bio from Voice of the Martyrs it is written about him: “Many people called him the “Voice of the Underground Church” and others referred to him as the “Iron Curtain St. Paul.”  This humble servant began the ministry of “The Voice of the Martyrs”. If you have never heard of him you can get his book:  Tortured for Christ  for FREE from Voice of the Martyrs.

The description of In God’s Underground:

Imprisoned by the Romanian Communists for his work in the Christian Underground, and subjected to medieval torture, Wurmbrand kept his faith—and strengthened it. For fourteen years, he shared that faith with suffering cellmates and gave them solace. In solitary confinement, he tapped out his message of hope and Christian love. In Room Four, the “death room”, he helped dying patients even though his lungs were riddled with tuberculosis and his body lacerated and bloody from whips and kicks. Anguished over the fate of his wife and son, he could still tell jokes and stories to make despairing prisoners laugh. Sorely tempted by the promise of release and reprieve, he refused to become a Communist collaborator.
And the miracle is that he survived.
