On November 11, 1998, Herb Gregg was walking home from an afternoon of playing basketball at an orphanage. A committed missionary working in Dagestan in the Caucasus area of Russia, Herb had taken the walk dozens of times before. But that day something happened-- in an instant a car pulled up beside him, a man waved a police badge in his face, and he was wrestled into the backseat where his abductors pulled a sock cap over his face. In that instant Herb knew he was theirs-- a prisoner of Chechen militant Islamic extremists. For the next seven months Herb was held hostage. Beaten, starved, deprived of freedom, threatened with beheading-- berated to denounce his Christian faith, Herb triumphs with the help of his courageous wife, a Russian hostage negotiator he would never meet, and the protective hand of the Lord.
“231 Days” is Herb's amazing, inspiring story-- not just of faith, but of God's limitless power in even the darkest times. (215 pages)
"I am biased in regards to this story because I experienced it firsthand. Herb is my father-in-law and I walked with the family through this ordeal. Even though I knew the story, I couldn’t put the book down and the documentary is just as thrilling, with even more details to the story. Herb and Linda are incredible witnesses to the power of God and his miraculous ways. I highly recommend it- especially if you want to be reminded of God’s faithfulness, His miraculous works and his amazing Grace!" --Linda G.
