Summary
As a testament to her unwavering faith in a God who delivers, Prodan denounced Nicolae Ceausescu and dared to defend Christians in communist Romania while fearlessly declaring Christ-- even to the assassin who was ordered to kill her. She was kidnapped, tortured, and came within seconds of being executed-- but managed to defeat her enemies and expose the appalling secrets that would lead to the demise of Ceausescu's evil empire
