The world learned the horrendous details of Martin and Gracia Burnham’s yearlong captivity in Gracia’s best-selling, Gold Medallion Award-winning book, In the Presence of My Enemies. In this follow-up, Gracia reflects on the lessons and spiritual truths she learned in the jungle and how they apply to anyone’s life. Twenty-one brief, theme-based chapters squarely address the challenges each of us face as we pass through difficult times to take to the skies again.
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.
I thought this book was phenomenal because the story and ideas are so real. The author is very unpretentious. I also like how the book is organized. It was a quick read and very uplifting.
