Forgiveness in the Face of Terror
You may remember hearing about missionaries - John and Eloise Bergen's - horrifying attack in Kitale, Kenya last year. They've just released a book about their ordeal and the forgiveness they offered to their assailants.
Book promo from their website: "The year is 2008. Late one evening in rural Kenya, a band of men break into a farm and brutally assault and rob the couple living there. The couple had recently arrived from Canada for missionary work among orphans. Near the point of death, they struggle to find medical treatment in the dark of night. Their healing is miraculous, but the greater story is their spiritual journey to healing through the power of forgiveness. This book is their story - the shock and suffering they experienced, and the joy and hope they found, told here in their own words."
