Product Description


For what are we being tried? For free faith in Christ! In fact, it is not we who are on trial, but Christ! We are merely His twentieth-century disciples, and we are saying and doing nothing new. We continue to witness to the Gospel about the salvation of man and about eternal life in Christ.

Our interrogators, procurators, and judges have not come very far from those who participated in Christ’s trial in the first century—they use the same methods: slander, falsehood, and hatred for God’s truth.

I prepare for the trial . . . By now I have pencil and paper. My first thought: we are appearing here (before the court), not for robbery, not for rioting, not for gold, not for hooliganism.

The trial of Jesus Christ is continuing here today, the trial which was begun in the time of the Roman procurator in Judea, Pontius Pilate.

It is faith in the bright future of humanity that is on trial. Christ was calm, full of spiritual strength, and confident of the victory of the cause of the Gospel. His confidence is transmitted even to us.—Georgi Vins


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.

The pages of this book will 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!


Some of the stories are Georgi’s own personal experiences and others are of those of friends and co-laborers in Russia. A bonus section in the book titled “My Prison Camp Diary” was written by Georgi when he was imprisoned for his faith in Christ in a Soviet prison from 1966 to 1969. The diary papers were smuggled out of the prison and were published in 1975 by a U.S. publisher while Georgi was serving a second prison sentence.

As Georgi finished writing Moscow Express years later, he realized that the inoperable tumor discovered in his brain would soon end his physical life. The final chapters of the first section of this book were, quite literally, written on his deathbed. However, as with his previous books, he desired to lift up the name of Jesus Christ and glorify the Lord, so he pressed on with the project despite his declining health. The manuscript was finished just as Georgi’s strength ebbed too low to work anymore. On January 11, 1998, after fifty years of actively serving the Lord, Georgi Vins passed from life on Earth to his eternal home. He has left a legacy of courage and enduring faith in the midst of severe persecution.


In Captive Faith, three Russian pastors imprisoned for preaching the gospel, find themselves together in prison camp. God uses them to begin a church in prison.

This true story of Georgi Vins and fellow Christian prisoners shows God's providence and His strength in persecution.

Incredibly convicting! Really makes you take a step back for some inner reflection. Great lessons for our youth to learn as well. Our whole purpose in life is to bring glory to the Lord, in our own lifetime. Good reminder.
