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.

    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.

    Captive In Iran is a great Christian memoir written by Iranian Christians Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh. Despite growing up in a Muslim country, Maryam and Marziyeh both found Christ and since, have proudly proclaimed Christ in Iran. They have given out thousands of Bibles, and often have 10 or so Bibles in their backpack to give to others, sometimes near Muslim holy sites. One day, Maryam and Marziyeh are arrested for promoting Christianity, interrogated, and imprisoned. Yet, these two courageous women managed to hold fast to their faith, and I admire this.

    At times, both women drove me absolutely crazy. I admire their strong faith and courage, oftentimes they lacked wisdom. Promoting Christianity is a crime in Iran. I read a lot of WWII books, and a lot of active resistance members had to be a LOT more careful than Maryam and Marziyeh were. Diet Eman mentions in her memoir Things We Couldn't Say a lot of Christians who had big hearts and wanted to help Jews, yet oftentimes their foolishness costed many lives. That's how I felt Maryam and Marziyeh were at times - like having multiple Bibles in their backpack at a single time and keeping stacks of Christian books, music and keeping pictures of fellow Christians.



    Maybe it's because I'm a total WWII-junkie, but I unfortunately didn't like this as much as I thought I would. If the plot sounds interesting to you, I wouldn't hesitate recommending it though.

    This book is so absolutely inspiring! I could not put it down. It's something I believe every American Christian should read. Very thought-provoking--a story that I think will stay with me for the rest of my life. The book is written in first person by the women who experienced almost one year in Evin Prison in Iran. I immediately felt like I knew these women, they brought me into their story, and they made me ask myself the same questions they asked. Would I risk everything to live God's will for my life? Would I flourish in prison the way they did? An amazing read!
