Wow! What an inspiring, heartbreaking, and interesting book! I just finished reading Captive in Iran and I absolutely loved it and highly recommend reading it. This book offers a unique inside look into the Iranian culture from a converted Iranian Christian that is rare due to Iran's harsh restrictions on their people. It is such a different world than what most of us Americans can comprehend and it really opens your eyes to the gross injustice and assaults on freedom that are taking place around the world. This book is a very quick read - I didn't want to put it down! Marayam and Marziyeh are incredibly brave women and I am so thankful that they are willing to tell their story!
Captive In Iran, is written by Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh. These two Iranian women courageously stood firm in their faith while in Evin, the notorious Tehran prison. Despite the possible sentence of death, Maryam and Marziyeh continued to share their faith to their fellow cellmates. Captive in Iran is a mind blowing and encouraging story of how these two sisters in Christ continued to believe, not matter what the cost. I was excited to finally be able to read Captive In Iran, but what not sure of what to expect. What I read was really amazing. I cannot begin to imagine what it must have been like in Evin. How loosing your friends, facing interrogations, and the many other things they went through must have been like, and yet they faithfully continued to share the love of Christ to everyone. I definitely suggest you read this book. It has the moments when you are joyful for those who are freed, and when you are saddened from the executions of others. It is encouraging to read of how they prayed and when their prayers were answered. Captive In Iran is a must read.
