Door of Hope International is excited to announce a new version of, “Tortured For His Faith,” by world acclaimed author, and deeply revered spiritual giant, Pastor Haralan Popov!

Imprisoned for 13 years in Communist Bulgaria for his unrelenting faith in Jesus Christ, Pastor Haralan Popov’s autobiography that has touched over one million lives, circulated all over the world, translated in more than 26 languages, has been reprinted and now available again!

This new version includes a forward written by his son, Paul H. Popov, along with an additional chapter revealing the last years of Pastor Popov’s life.

Paul’s immensely touching story from his personal perspective as Haralan’s son, and the current years as international president of Door of Hope adds dramatic reading.

The last chapter of Dr. Haralan Popov’s life brings the book to full circle. Miraculously released to the Free World, Haralan’s yearning wish to revisit his beloved homeland, Bulgaria, and see the faces of the congregation he loved and pastured for many years, was actualized. A few weeks later, Haralan went home to his Heavenly Father.

This autobiography, one man’s journey, reveals the stories of many others. Today, many continue to face similar torture and persecution in other countries around the world. With the help of the Holy Spirit, Haralan rose above his circumstances and was freed from his tormentors, but not free to forget the plight of the Suffering Church.

Dr. Haralan I. Popov, left a heritage rich and strong in the Lord. His testimony and dedication brought people beyond themselves to a pertinent realization of God’s purpose among His people. His constant dedication to God despite difficulties, persecution, and circumstance, inspired many. The message he spoke was always the same, moving in its simplicity and truth: the story of a man, who for a brief time here on earth was willing to forfeit all for the Gospel’s sake.

The need for human rights advocacy is still prevalent today. This book inspires people to make a difference. One man made a difference around the world. He wasn’t idle in his time on this earth. Haralan inspired and asked others to also not be idle. You can also make a difference!

Be inspired by reading Haralan’s amazing testimony. With renewed spiritual energy, you can go forward to inspire many others. As an individual, or as a church, you can help spread the message of Pastor Haralan’s story once again.

Many have reread Tortured for His Faith for a second and third time and each time found it a fresh awakening. If you have never read Tortured for His Faith before, we encourage you to do so. We know that it will be a tremendous help and strength in your spiritual life, as it has been for all who have read it.

We pray that God will inspire you to join us in continuing the vision of Door of Hope that Haralan began!

This book has been translated and published in 26 languages!
