Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Georgi Vins, a Baptist pastor living in the U.S.S.R., was 37-years-old the first time he was imprisoned for his faith in a Soviet prison camp. He left behind his wife, his children, and his church. Over the course of thirteen years, Pastor Vins spent a total of eight years in the gulags.
But in the pages of this book, you won't read about a man who felt sorry for himself or who wallowed in the misery of his sufferings. Rather, you will hear the true stories of believers whose faith in Jesus Christ took preeminence in their lives and who allowed nothing, not even a Communist government, to take away their faith and their hope.
Threaded through The Gospel in Bonds is an intricately woven theme of love for God's Word and faith in the Gospel, even in the midst of severe punishment and deprivation.
May the pages of this book give you insight into the mind of a man uniquely used by God and encourage you to an ever-closer walk with the Savior, Jesus Christ!

One thing that really broke my heart was how precious the Bible was to Georgi and other prisoners, something most of us take for granted as many of us likely have several copies gathering dust. Vins and others were so hungry for God's word that they were willing to risk anything - even torture and extended prison sentences - to get even a few scriptures to read. At one point, Georgi's most treasured possession was a tiny copy of the gospel of Mark that he kept hidden in the heel of his shoe when he wasn't sharing it with his fellow inmates. Holding my Bible in my hands each day has given me a new sense of gratitude and reverence for it since reading The Gospel in Bonds.
I was moved by not only Vins' experience but also that of his wife and children. When we hear of someone imprisoned for his or her faith, we forget that their families also suffer a great deal due to the stigma of their association with the person and living with the absence of a father or mother; daughter or son. Both Vins and his family had every reason to feel sorry for themselves under the weight of such injustice but instead they used it as an opportunity to strengthen their faith and share the gospel.
Included in the book are several photos and poems written by the author before, during, and after his imprisonment.
This is a book all believers in the "free world" need to read. Persecution may not affect all of us now, but as social and political forces continue their attack on Christianity and biblical values, such things may not be that far away. Georgi Vins' story makes the persecuted church personal and points the reader to the sovereignty of God and how He is at work in the most difficult circumstances.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
