EMPOWER

MEET VIRGINIA PRODAN

Virginia Prodan is an International Human Rights Attorney, an Allied Attorney with the Alliance Defending Freedom; a sought-after International Speaker, and an Author at Tyndale. Virginia Prodan graduated from Bucharest Law School in Romania with a Juris Doctor (JD) degree and from S.M.U. Law School in Dallas, TX with a Juris Doctor (JD) degree and a Master of Laws (LL.M International ) degree.

Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Christ against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land.

For this act of treason, she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself. How Virginia not only managed to defeat her enemies time and again, but helped expose the appalling secret that would lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s evil empire is one of the most extraordinary stories ever told.

Reviews For Saving My Assassin

Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West (US Army, Retired)

President/CEO, National Center for Policy Analysis - Member of 112th US Congress

“Virginia Prodan’s new book Saving My Assassin, is a relevant read. The story of a Christian attorney fighting for religious liberty against persecution in Romania is timely for us in America. We are seeing growing prosecution against the Judeo-Christian faith heritage and individual religious freedom here in America. There could be no better time to hear Virginia’s story than now. And she enlightens us to a real aspect of the infamous ‘War on Women’ – that ideological conflagration against Christian women. Virginia’s book tells her story – one of being strong and of good courage.”

Tony Perkins

President, Family Research Council, Washington, DC (FRC.org)

“Virginia Prodan stood fearlessly against an oppressive communist regime and the lawless leadership of Nicolai Ceausescu. She chose to obey God rather than man and changed the course of history!  Virginia mastered her fear of earthly consequences for the glory of God and now inspires her readers.  Beyond inspiration, Saving My Assassin is a call to action: to live above fear—and to witness the miraculous. I believe this is the message for this generation of Believers, we must rise above the fear of man to see a miraculous move of God.”

Sara Roggan

President, Christian Legal Society SMU Law School

“Saving My Assassin is a great reminder of the powerful God we serve and the hope and strength He offers us when we obey Him. I was very encouraged by Virginia Prodan’s story!”

Ed Martin

President, Phyllis Schlafly, Eagle Forum

"Saving My Assassin is explosive! It is a celebration of awe-inspiring bravery filled with unforgettable moments! Virginia’s courage to stand up for her belief’s, and for others in the face of death, serves as an encouragement to those of us who strive to do the same! She is a heroine of our time—a strong woman with a strong message. Virginia’s memoir motivates you to discover not only the courage in you and the power of your voice, but also the purpose for your life! Everyone should read Saving My Assassin—a message that will stay with you long after the last chapter ends!”

Dr. Frank Turek

Award-winning author and coauthor “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist”; Christian Apologist & President of CrossExamined.org

"Saving My Assassin is a riveting true story of a young woman standing for Christ in a government that would rather have her dead. It’s not only entertaining, but Virginia’s story provides the kind of inspiration and example that you may need as our world continues to darken."

Kelly Shackelford, Esq.

President, CEO and Chief Counsel of Liberty Insitute

"Saving My Assassin is captivating and you won’t be able to put it down. Virginia Prodan has written an incredible book that every American will want to read. It’s rare to find a book so well written, and so emotionally powerful, and yet teaching wonderful lessons about freedom and courage and the great moral principles to which we all need to aspire. This is a must read."

Joseph P. Infranco

Senior Counsel and Vice-President Alliance Defending Freedom

“In this extraordinary book, Saving My Assassin, you will meet a truly courageous woman, Virginia Prodan - a lawyer and defender of the Christian faith, who risked her life in one of the most brutal regimes of modern history. Virginia Prodan’s faith was forged in the furnace of Nicolae Ceausescu’s cruel reign in Romania. As an openly Christian attorney, Prodan repeatedly represented the causes of Christian churches and political “enemies” of the state. Her advocacy brought regular arrests, beatings, and death threats to her and her young children. Yet through all the persecution, Prodan never lost her courage or faith in God. Her life is an account of God’s miraculous provision and help from unexpected sources. In 1988, President Reagan granted Prodan and her family political asylum in the U.S. But she is still in the fight, employing her experience and passion for justice to defend religious freedom. Virginia’s story is an encouragement for Christians everywhere, called to stand – and perhaps die – for their faith.”

Former Senator Jim DeMint

President and CEO - The Heritage Foundation

“Saving My Assassin is a stirring account of valor under an oppressive regime and faith in the face of faithlessness. Prodan’s heartbreaking, inspiring life journey from Communist Romania to the birthplace of freedom will move readers of every background, and serves as a call to action for a new generation of Americans whose religious liberty is already under attack by the corrupt and powerful. Through persecution, conversion, exile, and triumph, Prodan reminds us: there is always hope.”

Rick Green

former legislator and author of Constitution Alive!

“Virginia’s riveting story of courage and faith is a great reminder of how precious freedom truly is and why it is so important to have those like Virginia willing to fight for that freedom in the courtroom and also the halls of our legislatures. Saving My Assassin also serves as a warning to all Americans that the brutality of tyranny often begins with the abuse of the judiciary, all while singing the praises of the rule of law.”

Rev. Pierre Bynum

Family Research Council Chaplain & National Prayer Director

"Virginia Prodan’s electrifying true story - Saving My Assassin - reads like a well-crafted novel, but burns with the power only truth can convey – and in a very personal way. America is not Ceaușescu’s Romania, but too many of our countrymen treat liberty casually, and some have traded their liberties for a mess of pottage. May God use Virginia’s story to stir Americans to take a stand for the liberty so many of our fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters have died to preserve."
