Stolen: A Letter to My Captor by Lucy ChristopherIt happened like this. I was stolen from an airport. Taken from everything I knew, everything I was used to. Taken to sand and heat, dirt and danger. And he expected me to love him.
This is my story.
A letter from nowhere.
Sixteen-year-old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. This wild and desolate landscape becomes almost a character in the book, so vividly is it described. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back?
The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they dont exist--almost.
A History of Christianity Volume 1: Beginnings to 1500
The massive A History of Christian Missions in China remains a substantial piece of work despite the years since it was written. Starting with the religious background of China, Latourette probes why Christianity appealed to the Chinese and then launches into a detailed history of its development. He considers how Christianity began before and coped under the Mongol Dynasty and then the incursion of the Roman Catholic Missions. Looking at the Rites Controversy and the slowing down of the growth of Christianity in the country, he assesses the effectiveness of the Catholic effort. Briefly considering the Russian Orthodox interest in Chinese missions, he moves on to what is clearly his main concern in the Protestant influx in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Beginning in the late s, Latourette traces the work of continuing Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Russian Orthodox efforts at missionary work through the period of Chinese reorganization. Essential reading for those interested in how Christianity took root and grew in China, this study has continued to retain its value as an extraordinary piece of history.
