13 Days of Terror: My 13 Days of Terror with the Abu Sayyaf Guerrillas: A True Story by Greg Williams

When American missionary Greg Williams travels to the Philippines, he dreams of helping the starving children of the island nation. But his dreams turn into a nightmare when, within days of his arrival, he is taken hostage by an Islamic terrorist organization, Abu Sayyaf. Linked to Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network, the terrorists put a high price on the missionary’s head.
Imprisoned t the jungle camp, Williams is brutally beaten and ordered to turn over the name of someone who will pay for his freedom. But Williams knows no one in the Philippines and has no name to give. Realizing that he is marked for death, Williams turns to his religious beliefs to sustain him through the darkness. His deep faith helps him endure days of torture and nights of despair. However, just at the moment when his death seems certain, Williams is saved by an utterly remarkable and surprising turn of events.

More than just an adventure story, 13 Days of Terror is a gripping account of one man’s struggle to win his freedom. It is an inspirational tale of faith and brotherhood ultimately triumphing over brutality and evil.
