On May 27, 2001, missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham were taken hostage by terrorists. A year later, Gracia was rescued by a helicopter, but Martin with "angel's wings." Gracia's riveting account tells about their ordeal; their relationship with each other and God; the actions of the governments involved; their captors' trial; and more. 304 pages, softcover from Tyndale.
In the Presence of My Enemies, the gripping true story of American missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnhams year as hostages in the Philippine jungle, was a New York Times best seller and has sold nearly 350,000 copies. Now releasing in trade softcover for the first time, this updated edition has a new look and contains never-before-published information on the capture and trial of the Burnhams captors; Gracias secret return trip to the Philippines; and updates on recent events in Gracias life, ministry, and family.
The Burnhams, under torturous conditions, befriended their guards, comforted their fellow hostages and kept their faith in a God who seemed to have abandoned them.
