Like a violent microburst that threatens to down an aircraft, an unexpected crisis may rock your world and leave you wondering whether the life you've known is over. Gracia Burnham understands those feelings. Reflecting on the horrific year she and her husband, Martin, spent as hostages in the Philippine jungle and her experiences since returning home, Gracia shares how she is rebuilding her life by God's grace alone. You maybe be one of the many thousands who know the Burnham's story, or perhaps you are seeking direction and hope in the midst of your own pain. This book addresses the confusion, fear, anxiety and loss of control that all people in crisis experience. It also illustrates how God longs to pour his grace into people with broken dreams and fill their life with new meaning and joy.
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.
