As a young attorney in Romania under Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal communist regime, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend Christians against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land. For this act of treason, she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself.
How Virginia not only managed to defeat her enemies time and again, but helped expose the appalling secret that would lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s evil empire is one of the most extraordinary stories ever told.
Virginia had literally faced her assassin and has lived to tell about it. You will be inspired by her confidence and courage in the Lord; and by her desire to share God’s love with anyone. She had shared it with the man who was hired to kill her. Virginia Prodan’s compelling story of courage in the face of intimidation, and even death on behalf of others, is a testament to her unwavering faith in a God who delivers. Her memoir, Saving My Assassin, was published by Tyndale House Publishers.
