With God in Solitary Confinement: ~In 1945, when the Communists seized Romania and attempted to control the churches for their purposes, Richard Wurmbrand immediately began an effective, vigorous "underground" ministry to his enslaved people as well as the invading Russian soldiers. He was arrested in 1948, along with his wife, Sabina. His wife was a slave-laborer for three years on the Danube Canal. Richard Wurmbrand spent three years in solitary confinement, seeing no one but his Communist torturers. He was then transferred to a group cell, where the torture continued for five more years. ~Due to his international stature as a Christian leader, diplomats of foreign embassies asked the Communist government about his safety and were informed that he had fled Romania. Secret police, posing as released fellow-prisoners, told his wife of attending his burial in the prison cemetery. His family in Romania and his friends abroad were told he was dead. ~After 8 ½ years in prison, he was released and immediately resumed his work with the Underground Church. A couple of years later, in 1959, he was re-arrested and sentenced to 25 years in prison. ~Mr. Wurmbrand was released in a general amnesty in 1964, and again continued his underground ministry. He was warned in 1966 that the Communist regime of Romania planned to assassinate him; yet he was not silent in the face of this death threat. ~Pastor Wurmbrand authored numerous books, which have been translated into over 60 languages throughout the world. Christian leaders have called him the "Voice of the Underground Church," and "the Iron Curtain Paul". · "This is a most astonishing, perhaps the most astonishing book that I have read," says Dr. J. B. Phillips. "Richard Wurmbrand must surely be one of the most remarkable Christians living today. He went far beyond what most of us would think were the limits of human endurance, and he retained his faith in Christ and the power of love." ·
