From the book cover: Michael Wurmbrand was nine years old when the Communist-controlled government in Bucharest, Rumania, snatched away his father. The crime: preaching the gospel of Christ outside government-sanctioned buildings. Unfortunately for the Wurmbrands, they were Jews who had become Christians and more dangerous enemies of the state could hardly be imagined by atheistic Communists. With his father and at times his mother in prison, Michael grew up struggling to stay in school and later to keep jobs. His outspoken Christian faith and his father's ceaseless opposition to Communism kept Michael under surveillance of the secret police. Finally, in 1965, $10,000 ransom was paid and the Wurmbrands obtained visas to leave Rumania. They new mission: to inform the free world of totalitarian oppression against Christians in Communist countries through their organization, Jesus to the Communist World, which supports the underground church.
