Overview
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.

The authors’ Christian evangelism in Iran caused them to suffer unimaginable dimensions of persecution. Iranian law lets people openly practice their religion, but it is a crime to convert others from Islam. They were arrested in 2009 and spent 259 days in Evin Prison among some of the worst conditions and with Iran’s worst criminals. “The filth, bad food, poor medical care, and lack of exercise and fresh air in prison made it practically impossible to stay healthy.” Their story became worldwide news on the Voice of America, Radio Farda, and the Internet. The case was brought before the United Nations and the Vatican got involved. A prayer vigil commenced in front of the Iranian embassy in London. Even while imprisoned, Rostampour and Amirizadeh continued to freely profess their faith. The women they meet in Evin strengthen their faith and inspire the reader. Good luck or a series of miracles occur: because of court mistakes, the charges are dismissed and the two women leave Iran and now live in Atlanta. This is a powerful story of Christian courage that will appeal to anyone struggling with faith. (Apr.)
