Some questionable theology

A strong woman after God's own heart

Sabina Wurmbrand is often overshadowed by her famous husband, Richard, who is a great man of God. This book is a tale of her suffering and perseverance in an atheist society. I read this book when I was sixteen, but did not fully appreciate it until I reread it in my twenties. She is a wonderful woman and model of the love and forgiveness of God. I would suggest this book to anybody, even non-Christians. She loved in impossible situations and was truly a woman after God's own heart.

The best book I ever read..from the most loving woman I ever met

Sabina Wurmbrand's book, The Pastor's Wife should be read by every believer. She suffered so much under the communists and Nazi's and never held on to any bitterness but only loved back like her Messiah. Knowing Sabina in her older years changed my life forever. It is because of her encouraging me to "take an orphan in" over and over again led us to adopt our daughter from China. Her strength and humility are woven throughout this book. I could not put this book down... I also encourage you to read this with "In God's Underground" written by her dear husband Pastor Richard Wurmbrand. Mother to Estee Li Li

Pain and future hope

Sabina Wurmbrand lived an incredible and at times incredibly hard life. This is the story of a Rumanian woman facing persecution and her own sinful human nature by relying on her deep faith. I found the autobiography dark yet uplifting. Christian readers who want to read only happy "sugar-coated" books may want to avoid this one but then again maybe they should read it because it shows how high a price keeping the faith sometimes requires. People who still believe Communism was a positive thing should read this book, even many communists suffered under their own system. Overall, a great book!

This book is real history; it should be read!

I traveled in Romania with our church distributing Bibles in 1993, so that country has long been in my heart. I found the church in Romania to be alive and strong, and its members knew so much that we, in our comfortable churches in America have never learned-how to really love and trust God. The people had little in the way of life's comforts in 1993- my middle-class life in America in comparison was very rich; the orphans I visited in a boys home haunted me until I adopted from Kazakh and now from Latvian orphanages, but I will never forget them. This book will rock you out of complacency, and cure you, at least temporarily, of feeling sorry for yourself or blaming God for not doing what you want Him to do for you. God bless the Romanian Christians. Jacqueline Smith

This book changed my life.

When I was 14, I met Sabina Wurmbrand when she and her husband came to my church. There were flocks of people around but she looked through them and came to me and smiled her wonderful sweet smile and said "You will be a wonderful woman of God." Her book is just like that. It breaks through the crowd and clamor of life and brings you to a place where God is personal and real. The story is vivid in its detail of what she and the other women experienced and how they dealt with them. It is the story of a miraculous life and worth reading!
