British missionaries David and Shirley Donovan were running a health center in Nigeria when a pounding on their bedroom door tipped their lives upside down. Threatened at gunpoint, held hostage and ransomed for a billion naira, they tell of the grace that allowed them to witness to their kidnappers in the midst of the chilling and disturbing realization of what man is capable of.



This gripping book tells a true story of hostage–taking and murder, told first–hand by those who experienced it. It is also the story of how three hostages found God’s perspective in a time of great trial from a Bible which they had with them in captivity. I found the book both humbling and a great challenge to complacency.

-Alasdair Paine, Vicar of St. Andrew the Great, Cambridge and a trustee of Keswick Ministries.

This testimony of God’s presence in the trial and the lessons learned will encourage and challenge every reader.

-Peter Maiden, International Director Emeritus, Operation Mobilisation

David and Shirley Donovan were willing to risk personal comfort and security in obedience to Christ. This book is their testimony to God’s goodness in sustaining them through an ordeal of pain, terror, and uncertainty.

-Sharon James, Social Policy Analyst, The Christian Institute

I finished the book praising God for their courage, and even more, for His all–sufficient grace in our Lord Jesus Christ.
