From former hostage and missionary Gracia Burnham comes a wealth of hard-earned wisdom about yielding control, trusting God, and finding hope in heartbreaking circumstances. Here the soft-spoken mother of three shares lessons she learned about patience, worry, anger, and trust while she and her husband, Martin, were prisoners of terrorists in the Philippine jungle. 288 pages, hardcover from Tyndale.
The world learned the horrendous details of Martin and Gracia Burnham's yearlong captivity in Gracia's book, In the Presence of My Enemies. To Fly Again, Gracia's reflections on the lessons and spiritual truths she learned in the jungle, contains 21 brief, theme-based chapters that squarely address the challenges each of us face when we lose control of some aspect of life. This book offers no pat answers or easy solutions, just the battle-tested wisdom of a woman who lived her greatest nightmare and came through it more convinced of God's grace than ever before. Even those unfamiliar with her dramatic story will be engaged by Gracia's insights on surviving life's unexpected crises.
