Based on the book Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand.
Bonus content: Inspiration from today's persecuted Church -- Keith & Kristyn Getty in concert (4 min.)
Summary "Be inspired by love and forgiveness that conquered Communist prisons. Pastor Richard Wurmbrand suffered 14 years of imprisonment and brutal torture, while his wife, Sabina, was treated as a slave in a labor camp. Their only "crimes" were their faith and witness for Jesus Christ. Through it all, they loved their enemies and sought to win their torturers for Christ. Filmed entirely on location in Romania, including in the very prison where Richard endured torture and solitary confinement, this is the cinematic retelling of one of the most powerfully inspiring and historically significant testimonies of our time."--Provided by the publisher.
