$16.99

Paperback
For years Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu trod their people down. Only a very few dared speak out. For Laszlo Tokes, a young pastor in Timisoara, the coast of conscience was high. Beatings, intimidation, and rejection by church authorities followed his repeated stands against Ceausescu's regime and the church's subservience.;Violently evicted from their manse and removed by the Securitate to a remote village, Tokes and his pregnant wife waited in fear of their lives. Crowds gathered daily outside his church, making unprecedented demands for his release; within days, Ceausescu and his wife were dead and the Securitate routed. Tokes was immediately called upon to serve in the newly formed Salvation Front.;A first-hand account of how one man came to be the torch bearer for a country's freedom, and a spokesman for peace between warring ethnic groups. It offers a personal portrait of a man of faith who shuns the limelight and works tirelessly for his country's renewal.
