Many people have heard the story of Richard Wurmbrand and his imprisonment and torture in Communist prisons in Romania, but how many have heard the almost identical story of a great Bulgarian Christian pastor, Haralan Popov, imprisoned and tortured for over 13 yrs in Communist prisons in Bulgaria about the same time? In fact, Haralan Popov wrote a book very similar to Richard Wurmbrands with the title 'TORTURED FOR HIS FAITH", published in close to the same time frame as Wurmbrand's book, "TORTURED FOR CHRIST", although I believe an earlier edition was by a different title for Popov's book.

Another interesting fact about Popov is that when he gained freedom, he founded an organization very similar to Wurmbrands by the name of DOOR OF HOPE INTERNATIONAL. You may find information online at www.dohi.org .

I've read both books, and just finished the book of Popov's, which was every bit as riveting, inspiring and heartrending as Wurmbrand's account.
