Captive in Iran by Maryam Rostampour & Marziyeh Amirizadeh

Maryam and Marziyeh are two young women from Iran who were born into Muslim families, but became Christian.  They spread the gospel through sharing bibles and information with others quietly in Iran.  They are imprisoned under charges of apostasy which carries the penalty of prison and/or execution.  Although they were imprisoned, they did not stop telling others about Jesus or their Christian faith.  This book is the story of their experiences in prison and after their release.

What an inspiring story!  In America, it is hard to understand what it must be like to share your faith under potential penalty of death.  These two young women showed such courage, mercy, and compassion for others in the face of probable death.  I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in what it means to be Christian in Iran.  It is very candid and well-written and holds readers interest.  I would love to have the opportunity to see these two women speak!

    We take our religious freedoms for granted her in America and to hear about the true dangers of being a Christian in other nations should serve as a reminder to be thankful that we have them.
