The authors describe their harrowing experience being imprisoned for over two hundred days in Iran for sharing their Christian beliefs, a sentence that is usually punishable by death.

Embark on a chilling journey inside one of the world’s darkest and most dangerous places: Evin, the notorious Tehran prison. 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. It’s an amazing story of unyielding faith—when denying God would have meant freedom. Of incredible support from strangers around the world who fought for the women’s release. And of bringing God’s light into one of the world’s darkest places—giving hope to those who had lost everything, and showing love to those in despair.

Choosing your faith and attending christian services is not something we think twice about in the US. In Iran, it can get you thrown into Evin prison- one of the worst prisons in that country. The book follows the story of two Iranian women who happen to be Christian. They are imprisoned in Evin prison for giving out bibles and holding prayer meetings. Their faith carries them through as they struggle with terrible living conditions, bad food, nearly non existent medical care and mistreatment because they are Christians.
