About "Captive in Iran: A Remarkable True Story of Hope and Triumph Amid the Horror of Tehran's Brutal Evin Prison"

Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh knew they were putting their lives on the line. Islamic laws in Iran forbade them from sharing their Christian beliefs, but in three years, they'd covertly put New Testaments into the hands of twenty thousand of their countrymen and started two secret house churches.

In 2009, they were finally arrested and held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran, a place where inmates are routinely tortured and executions are commonplace. In the face of ruthless interrogations, persecution, and a death sentence, Maryam and Marziyeh chose to take the radical - and dangerous - step of sharing their faith inside the very walls of the government stronghold that was meant to silence them. In Captive in Iran, two courageous Iranian women recount how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to shine His light into one of the world's darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything and showing love to those in despair.

Very inspiring
4 stars By Aussiemum, Dec 14 2016
This is a powerful testimony to the power of God to save and protect his people in the darkest of places. I learned a lot about the arbitrariness of life in Iran and the fear its citizens live under from this book. No one is safe from accusation and even for actions we would consider normal, people can be thrown in prison. The two girls in this book are sent to a notorious prison because of their faith in Christ and active evangelism. Once there, God helps them to reach other women trapped by the regime. This is an important story although a little repetitive at times. It was also filled with lots of other prisoners' stories as one of the purposes of this book is to let the world know the sufferings of women in Iran.

Challenging
4 stars By Trudy, May 12 2016
This was an insightful read to hear about what the women Christians in the muslim world are suffering through. It is challenging because it encourages us to do more for God and to witness more to those around us. It did get a bit confusing when they kept switching from one woman's point of view to the other, but it was well put together

Inspirational
5 stars By Rebecca, Jun 08 2015
I found this book to be very compelling. Once I had started to read the pages I couldn't put the book down. I was inspired by how bold these women were, that despite under such harsh conditions they could be steadfast and faithful to the Lord. It encouraged me in my everyday living to be more bold in my witness for Christ - if these women could remain firm in prison - how much more should I be faithful in freedom. 
I was also so moved reading the stories of how God was working in the lives of the other prisoners. It was evident that these two Christians were enduring such horrible circumstances for the glory of God. Sometimes we forget to ask "where Lord?" because we are too focused on the "why?"

Christianity in the most surprising place
3 stars By Lisa, Jul 22 2014
2 Christian Iranian ladies are locked up in Evin Prison for distributing bibles and turning from Islam.  I was intrigued by their story but sometimes questioned their ability to speak in tongues, predict the future and draw others to Christ.  When I compare their story to other Middle Eastern prison stories, it was truly remarkable that they could avoid torture.  I suppose when it seems too good to be true, we can see God's hand in this true story.  Sometimes there was some repetition between Maryam  Marziyeh's accounts of events.  Could have been edited better.
