Tortured for Christ

Tortured for Christ is the powerful true story of Voice of the Martyrs founder Richard Wurmbrand.

As Communists invaded Romania in the 1940s, Christians had to choose to promote Communism or go to prison. Lutheran pastor Richard Wurmbrand and his wife Sabina chose to stand for Jesus. Despite the danger, Sabina boldly begged her husband to “wash away this shame from the face of Christ! They are spitting in His face.”

Because of their outspoken faith, both of them suffered brutal imprisonment, with the pastor enduring much torture in his fourteen years of captivity.

Tortured for Christ is their true account of unbreakable faith. It powerfully portrays the victorious living Christ enables. Dedicated to loving others in Jesus’ name, Pastor Richard Wurmbrand said, “As communist atheists allowed no place for Jesus in their hearts, I decided I’d leave not the smallest place for Satan in mine.”

After their release, the Wurmbrands continued to serve Jesus and founded Voice of the Martyrs, an international ministry to the persecuted church.

Tortured for Christ was filmed entirely on-site in Romania, including one of the actual prisons Pastor Wurmbrand was held in. Prepare to have your ideas challenged about what it means to give your all to Christ!
