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.

The most powerful and encouraging aspect of this story was the way the two girls refused to deny Christ despite the consequences. The prison system in Iran as detailed here is Kafka like with inadequate food laced with chemicals, breathtakingly bad medical care, lack of rights and above all seems...

“Despite our earlier bravado, we were afraid. For all we knew, this could be our last day on earth. We held hands and prayed to the Lord to calm our hearts. Our greatest fear was that we would break and say things outside of God’s will. We prayed for strength. We wanted our captors to see that we...

This was a book I could not put down. No one should ever have to endure the kind of treatment women receive in Evin prison. So many of the women imprisoned there were unjustly imprisoned or given stiff sentences for relatively minor crimes. Despite their brutal, dehumanizing treatment in prison,...

I was fascinated by this book and that is probably since it seems so many didn't like it because they felt that the two women were not Christian and didn't use enough Scripture in their writing. That is a shame. It seemed like both women were very much Christian and even went out of their comfort...

Exciting, convicting read, though there were a few negatives. There was some swearing, to portray the real character of some--still, not necessary, in my opinion. There is talk of dreams and speaking in tongues, which is different than I've always been taught is how God works today. But I can't s...

The moment I began reading Captive in Iran I was drawn into the true story of Marziyeh and Maryam, two young Iranian women imprisoned for claiming the name of Christ. Their story is told so well you can feel as much of it as is possible to feel through the printed page. Listen to how there story...

Superb, well written book. These girls went through hell in one of the worlds most demonic prisons in one of the most demonic lands. Imprisoned, not for something that could be considered a crime (Being Christian) in the western world, but only in the uncivilized dark corners of Iran. The world n...
