Publisher's Description

Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh knew they were putting their lives on the line. Islamic laws in Iran forbade them from sharing their Christian beliefs, but in three years, they’d covertly put New Testaments into the hands of twenty thousand of their countrymen and started two secret house churches.

In 2009, they were finally arrested and held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran, a place where inmates are routinely tortured and executions are commonplace. In the face of ruthless interrogations, persecution, and a death sentence, Maryam and Marziyeh chose to take the radical—and dangerous—step of sharing their faith inside the very walls of the government stronghold that was meant to silence them. In Captive in Iran, two courageous Iranian women recount how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to shine His 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.

    Recommended.

    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.
