Item description for Imprisoned in Iran: Love's Victory over Fear (International Adventures) by Dan Baumann...
Overview Formerly titled: Imprisoned in Iran: Love's Victory Over Fear "It's strange," said one of the guards. "I stand by his cell sometimes, and I hear him praying for us! He's doing all this for love? We know nothing about this God of love, but it sounds very right." God's love is stronger than fear! This book chronicles Dan Bauman's experience in Iran in 1997, when he was wrongfully accused of espionage and thrown into the most infamous high- security prison in Iran. Imprisonment in Iran, the threat of execution, and God's hand moving in the lives of the guards make this a thrilling addition to the International Adventures series.
Publishers Description "On every continent, in every nation, God is at work in and through the lives of believers. From the streets of Amsterdam to remote Pacific islands to the jungles of Ecuador and beyond, each international adventure that emerges is a dramatic episode that could be directed only by the hand of God. Wrongly accused of espionage and thrown into the most infamous high-security prison in Iran, one American man witnessed the powerful triumph of God's love over fear.

The story of Love's Victory Over Fear. Sep 29, 2007
I personally liked this book. Why? Because it was about a man who wanted to goto Iran and share the Gospel with a particular group of people, but instead he got to witness to the Iranians. He was arrested for not having a particular stamp in his passport so they took his passport from him and his friend (it's illegal for any non-citized not to have their passport). They told him he had to travel back into the city to get is passport. Well as he was in the office trying to retrieve his passport with the help of the African Embassy he was then thrown into prison, and abused for "not telling the truth". From there he was transferred to the highest of all high security prisons in iran, which is where the guards seen Christ through his example and they even began to talk about Jesus and His true purpose in this life. I recommend this book for all ages, and is a book which will make you want to jump into an airplane and share the Gospel with people who are hungry for the truth. This book is a MUST READ! It will keep you on the end of your seat! (I read it in about 2-3 days)
Dan Baumann, Imprisoned in Iran: Love's Victory Over Fear (2 Apr 25, 2005
This volume is part of YWAM's series of International Adventures. Baumann, holding dual American/Swiss nationality, was falsely accused of espionage by the Iranians and jailed from January to March of 1997. Imprisoned in Iran seems to be an accurate reconstruction of these events and, unlike Joly's Tomorrow You Die (1997), Baumann does not appear to be over-sensationalizing his experience. As Floyd McClung indicates in a Foreward (at pp. 7-8), Baumann does not write as if he is a Christian hero, and his book is all the more effective for this. Similarly, it is clear that the author does not divide Iranians into the "saved" and the "unsaved"; his nuanced approach gives his prison memoir special credibility.
While Imprisoned in Iran is particularly pertinent for its Christian perspective, it also serves as a useful account of the attitude of Iranians toward Westerners. Baumann has provided a record of his three-month ordeal that is destined to stand the test of time.

An excellent book from a truly humble servant of God Jan 16, 2005
I bought this book after meeting Dan Baumann at a Conference he was speaking at. I read it straight through and couldn't put it down. During the conference he spoke about his experience in Iran and I was deeply moved by the conviction he had for God throughout the ordeal. He turned what most of us would have given up at into a form of praise and worship. He witnessed many miracles and many hardships, and his experience is nothing short of amazing. He made me think seriously of how I would react in a similar situation. At the conference Dan was humble in sharing what he endured from start to finish. He never acted proud for having survived, but always gave the glory where it was due, to the Lord. Whenever he mentioned Jesus he wasn't simply using a name, he was speaking to him. I was touched by his sincerity. So when I read the book I had high expectations, and they were met splendidly. The book is well written and nicely organized from start to finish, in my opinion. I never felt that it was sluggish or repetitious. You can only say so much about being in a prison cell 24 hours a day, so with what he had to work with he did wonders. All in all, the straightforwardness and honesty of his dialogue impressed me and kept me reading. I would recommend `Imprisoned in Iran' to anyone and everyone. Christian and non-Christian alike should read this personal account of confusion, suffering, and ultimately deliverance through belief and trust in Jesus Christ.
can't put it down Oct 18, 2003
I have bought this book for so many people as gifts to encourage them. People who are not "into reading" can't put it down. Dan reveals the depth of his love of God & man while honestly sharing his fears, doubts and needs. This book is a must read for anyone who cares about Christians or Muslims.
Story of A Guy Who Went to Iran Jun 5, 2003
One of my favorite things about this book is that you can see that Dan loves the Iranian people. Dan is just a guy who went to a different country, with his own human foibles, but a special love for his Muslim friends. Even though Dan was imprisoned in Iran, the Muslim people are portrayed compassionately. One thing connected to this, is a small insight into the hidden supernatural realm and how it negatively affects one of the prison guards from his usual demeanor.
