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.
