Richard Wurmbrand was born into a Jewish family.  In 1938 he and his wife were converted to Christ.  They fearlessly preached the gospel in communist Romania, and Richard served almost 14 years in prison for his faith.  He is know for his book Tortured for Christ.

In his book he explains the joy of preaching the gospel in prison. “It was strictly forbidden to preach to other prisoners. It was understood that whoever was caught doing this received a severe beating. A number of us decided to pay the price for the privilege of preaching, so we accepted their terms. It was a deal; we preached and they beat us. We were happy preaching. They were happy beating us, so everyone was happy.”
