Product Description

Despite opposition and threats, the Gospel is going forth in Muslim nations, mostly because of brave believers like Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh. The two women met while studying theology in Turkey and decided to work together when they returned home to their native Iran. Though Islamic law forbid it, in three years they distributed over twenty thousand New Testaments and started two secret house churches. It seemed like a miracle that they evaded being caught for their efforts to spread the Gospel.
However in 2009, the two women were arrested and held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran for 259 days. During their imprisonment they faced interrogations, intimidation, and threats of execution many times. In Captive in Iran, Rostampour and Amirizadeh share their remarkable story of survival and faith. You'll read how God used them to bring His light to one of the world's darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything, and facing fear with radical faith.

Publisher's Description

Embark on a chilling journey inside one of the world’s darkest and most dangerous places: Evin, the notorious Tehran prison. Here, prisoners are routinely tortured, abused, and violated. Executions are frequent and sudden. But for two women imprisoned for their Christian faith—Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh—this hell on earth was a place of unlikely grace as they reflected God’s love and compassion to their fellow prisoners and guards. Against all odds, Evin would become the only church many of them had ever known.

In Captive in Iran, Maryam and Marziyeh recount their 259 days in Evin. It’s an amazing story of unyielding faith—when denying God would have meant freedom. Of incredible support from strangers around the world who fought for the women’s release. And of bringing God’s light into one of the world’s darkest places—giving hope to those who had lost everything, and showing love to those in despair.

    I love true stories. I had read Prisoner of Tehran by Marina Nemat and really enjoyed that read. So when I read the back cover for this book I just knew I'd love it.

    Reading this book I had chills. The incredible spirit of these women really spoke to me. No matter the darkest time and hour they had 100% faith in God. It is just baffling at what Christians endure in other countries.

    This is an amazing read. One I will re-read again I am sure.

    I am on my 2nd round with this book. It far exceeded my expectations and I have been so moved in my faith and commitment to the Lord. I remember praying for these two girls and actually had their picture on my refrigerator. I rejoiced when they were freed, so to read the book felt it brought me closer to their journey. In addition, they have brought to light the stories of women after women whom the world would never have known about. This book has become my most favorite book of all time, after the Bible. I highly recommend it!

    This is an inspiring true story. It is encouraging to learn about people who have willingly suffered for Christ, just like the early Christians did. In the United States, it is hard to understand what persecution is like, so we need books like these to remind us of what Christians in other countries go through.

    Captive in Iran takes you into one of the worst prisons in the world. Two young Christian women are arrested and put into prison for 9 months. Just because they practiced Christianity in a Muslim world. It amazes me that sort of thing could happen. The horror and brutality that these two women had to endure is unbelievable. But beauty of it all is that they never lost hope or their faith. They continued to express their in the prison walls and were an inspiration to many of the other prisoners who continually asked them to pray for them. It is a powerful story but the book could be a little slow at times.

    I was not aware of the depth of persecution in those countries mentioned. The abuses, prison conditions, disease, malnutrition, interrogations and beatings were shocking and difficult to read about. There were many chances to pray for people, even ones they had not seen, and the prayers were answered. The two authors were witnesses in powerful ways to many people through their ordeal, even the guards and officials. These ladies were an inspiration to many, and their hope and joy were beautiful examples of Christianity. Their courage and dedication to their faith were impressive.
