This is the story of how, over a period of one hundred and ninety-two days, I was torn away from the life I knew and loved, and dragged down to the depths of despair; of how I endured enforced isolation and near-starvation at the hands of Somali pirates; and of how I made a choice to survive by any and all means that I could muster. In September 2011 Judith Tebbutt and her husband David set out on an adventurous holiday to Kenya. A couple for thirty-three years, they had first met in Zambia: Africa had played a major part in their life together. After a joyous week on safari in the Masai Mara, they flew on to a beach resort forty kilometres south of Somalia. And there, in the early hours of 11 September, tragedy struck them. Judith was torn away from David by a band of armed pirates, dragged over sea and land to a village in the arid heart of lawless Somalia, and there held hostage in a squalid room, a ransom on her head. There, too, she learned the terrible truth that the responsibility of securing her release now rested with her son Ollie. But though she was isolated, intimidated and near-starved, Judith resolved to survive - walking endless circuits of her nine-foot prison, trying to make her captors see her as a human being, keeping her faith at all times in Ollie. Powerful, moving and at times quite devastating, this is Judith Tebbutt's story in her own words. It is a memoir of the life she shared with her beloved husband, an unflinching account of the ordeal that overturned her world, and a testament to the inner resilience and familial love that sustained her through captivity. There is nothing so bad in life as to have no hope - to believe you have been defeated, to give in to that. Now that I found myself in confinement, four thousand miles from home under a hostile sky, I would not accept that fate for myself.

There are a few questions that lie just below the surface for many Christians. Does God really love me despite my failures? Can God use me for good in this world despite all my sin and shortcomings? Do my doubts and questions about faith make God think less of me? Do I have a future in the family of God despite my past? In the biblical story of the Prodigal Son, Jesus answers all those questions that lurk in the heart of so many believers. In The Long Walk Home, author and pastor Matt Carter takes a fresh look at this age-old story and helps the reader discover and experience, once again, the radical, never-ending love of God for His sons and daughters.

The Long Walk Home – will most likely be the last book I write – I am eighty-three years old – this book is important to me – it goes over to a degree what has been said in my previous books – The End Was A Beginning – the first – the second The Silent Voice – in much more detail – it is threaded with the never- ending presence of loneliness – but more significantly it brings forth the Four Absolutes – Honesty – Purity – Unselfishness – Love – which were given to me in 1986 – I have talked about these principles in my previous books – I made clear that if these principles were incorporated in society at hand – the world would change in an instant – this I believe is the power of these four words – the society that exists at present – the persistence of – selfishness – self-centeredness – permeated with dishonesty – beyond reproach – the distortion of purity – the use of the word – love – as a panacea – to cover the vile of discontent that exists in the world as is lived in – every crime – every murder – every twisted thought – every lie – every selfish act – every thought of hate - would be reduced to the pleasantries of memory – I cannot – predict where society will rest seventy years from now – 2016 – I do know that in 1927 the world population was two billion – 1960 three billion – 2011 seven billion – projection 2083 ten billion – will make up our society – if the culture is not changed – the present will be a reality for the future – this may be a morbid statement – it is a true statement – for sure – society is doing nothing to change the silhouette as is known – the simple life is but a dream of realities – taken from the books well-read – by masters – of the past – what is our destiny –
