Pastor Youcef had been imprisoned and tortured on numerous occasions because he had adamantly refused to recant his Christian beliefs. According to Javad, Pastor Youcef had told the authorities he would willingly give his life for his faith.
Would I give my life for my new faith?
I turned off the radio and thought about that question.
