CHARACTERS In the Presence of My Enemies READ ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ê Gracia Burnham Gracia Burnham Ê 7 FREE READ Soon after September 11 the news media stepped up its coverage of the plight of Martin and Gracia Burnham the missionary couple captured and held hostage in the Philippine jungle by terrorists with ties to Osama Bin Laden After a year of captivity and a viol. I ve read this book several times over the years but this is the first since I was a missionary in the Philippines It s interesting how understanding the culture makes sense of a lot of the experiences of the BurnhamsThis couple were working as missionaries in the Philippines with New Tribes Mission and had actually taken a short break when they were captured by Abu Sayyaf an Islamic terrorist group They spent a year in the jungle moving from place to place mostly trying to escape soldiers from the Philippine Land Army who made repeated attempts to establish their location Rescues don t seem to have been attempted and we learn later that the American government were being held off by the local troops who wrongly believed they could adeuately deal with the situation The events themselves are dramatic and fascinating however the book is poorly written and about twice the length it needs to be Mundane details of conversations and everyday events are included and even the exciting areas become pedestrian I found myself getting bored and only finished the book because it s a best seller The last few chapters in particular could be skipped as they are just lists of spiritual reflections and other items that didn t hold my interestThere were a few areas of theology that I disagreed with The author excuses paying bribes to the police as a cultural necessity Having lived in the Philippines it is definitely not and standing against the corruption in the police is necessary as a public testimony of our faith I probably wouldn t bother reading this again but I ve given it 3 stars for the story itself
