Rescue the Captors Graphic Novella
|Author:||Voice of the Martyrs|
Read the story of the man who shares God's love by parachute. A 28-page graphic story book, Rescue the Captors is the amazing story of American bush pilot Russell Stendal. When he landed his plane in a remote Colombian village on routine business, gunfire exploded throughout the town and within minutes Russell's 142-day captivity had begun.
Held at gunpoint deep in the jungle and with little to occupy his time, Russell began to write. He wrote the story of his life and kept a record of his experience in the guerrilla camp. His "book" became a bridge to the men who held him and now serves as the basis for this incredible true story of how God's love reached through the deep jungle into the hearts and lives of ruthless guerrillas. This colorful format is a great way to introduce the realities of Christian persecution to high school and college students, or anyone who enjoys graphic story books.
