Captive In Iran is the chilling true story of two Christian Iranian women’s fight for survival in one of the world’s most notorious and brutal prisons.
The daring pair had been breaking Islamic laws for years – by sharing their Christian faith. They had been handing out New Testaments in the major cities of Iran, setting up secret churches and evading the police having almost been caught several times. But it was only a matter of time before their activities caught up with them.
In 2009 they were captured by the ‘Basiji’ (the Iranian Government’s militiamen). Maryam & Marziyeh were stripped of all their official documents, condemned to a place of torture and sentenced to death by hanging. But in the face of interrogation and intimidation something remarkable happened: they started a church.
In Captive In Iran, the two women retell their experience of how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to reverse the effects of darkness. By showing love to those in despair and hope to those who had lost everything, they shone an amazing light into one of the world’s darkest places.
