67 Burnham, Gracia IN THE PRESENCE OF MINE ENEMIES
Tyndale House Pub.; 307 Pgs. 2003 Hard Cover Like New 
For American Missionaries, Martin and Gracia Burnham, what started out as a relaxing, once-in-a-lifetime anniversary getaway at an exotic island resort turned into one of the most horrific nightmares imaginable. Kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf, a terrorist group with ties to Osama bin Laden, the Burnhams were snatched away from friends and family and thrust into a life on the run in the Philippine jungle. During a perilous year in captivity, they faced near starvation, constant exhaustion, frequent gun battles, coldhearted murder --and intense soul-searching about a God who sometimes seemed to have forgotten them. In this gripping firsthand account of faith, love, and struggle in the face of unnervingly casual brutality, you'll go behind the scenes of a real-life drama, told in gritty detail by the least likely survivor. You'll learn about the methods and motives of a radical terrorist group whose members are determined to meet their objectives, no matter what the cost. You'll be inspired by the ultimately triumphant faith and enduring love of an ordinary couple thrown into extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

71 Carey, Dorothy DOROTHY CAREY ----The Tragic Untold Story of Mrs. William Carey
Baker Book House; 254 Pgs. 1992 1992 Paperback As New 
Paperback. As New. Dorothy Carey recounts the story of a tremendous sacrifice made in the cause of world evangelism and of a woman who has been unjustly treated by history. "Perhaps her sacrifice was not a voluntary one, but it was a sacrifice nonetheless", observes James Beck. Dorothy Carey, the wife of the founder of modern missions, was the first of a wave of pioneer wives in missions. She played a difficult role in making that ministry possible. Beck's unique background in psychology and his exhaustive study of records of the family's life in England, William Carey's voluminous journals, and accounts by others allow him to provide new insights into the woman whom Carey's biographers have only villified. Dorothy's story deserves to be told, and the author does so in a remarkable and memorable fashion.

BOBBY CLARK IS A NAME SYNONYMOUS WITH SOUTHERN GOSPEL MUSIC! His name is known nationally and internationally. He received THE LIVING LEGEND AWARD at the famous Grand Ole Gospel Reunion in 1994. "Booger Red" and "Mr. Tenor" were names familiar to his audiences and given to him by his peers in the early days of his career. He has made numerous recordings with various groups as well as solo recordings. His rendition of the old gospel song Hide Thou Me is a matchless recording to this day. He was the first tenor of the original CATHEDRAL TRIO that became THE CATHEDRAL QUARTET. He began his singing career at the age of nineteen when he joined THE DEEP SOUTH QUARTET in Atlanta, GA. He thrilled audiences with his lyrical tenor voice while singing with THE OAK RIDGE QUARTET, THE RANGERS QUARTET, THE WEATHER-FORD QUARTET, THE DIXIE ECHOES and with THE MEN OF MUSIC of Austin, Texas in the late 90s. Bobby studied voice at The Cleveland Institute of Music in Cleveland, Ohio with Elenore Steber, leading soprano for over 30 years with The Metropolitan Opera Company in New York. He sang the role of the Emperor of China in Puccini's Opera, Turandot in 1979 with the Orland Opera Company, Orlando, Florida.

You will enjoy reading of events regarding the birth of THE CATHEDRAL TRIO and how it evolved to become THE CATHEDRAL QUARTET that thrilled audiences for many years. In reading of those early days when they traveled by car, you will laugh at the jokes they played on each other as they rode the highways to sing the gospel of Jesus Christ to all who came to listen! You will read how various songs came to be recorded and the ingenious ways they recorded some of their music-much of which is still sung by quartets today. You will also be touched to read of their sorrows and victories. You will enjoy photos scattered throughout the book, some never seen by the general public. A collector's item for sure! ANYONE WHO READS BOBBY'S BOOK WILL BE ENTERTAINED AND BLESSED.YOU'RE IN FOR A WONDERFUL, JOYFUL, UPLIFTING RIDE.----Larry Gatlin
