Video Interviews With A Former North Korean Christian Captive

I mentioned last week the release of our new book, These are the Generations, which is not only a fascinating read but also one of the best contemporary studies in ransoming the captive. 

(And trust me–that’s no authorial bias or boast. Mr. and Mrs. Bae’s story is so riveting that it would still be a fascinating read even if a block of wood had written it up.)

As we study ransoming the captive together this month, be sure to visit the These are the Generations page on the Seoul USA website, where you’ll find a sample chapter of the book along with several exclusive interview clips where Mr. Bae talks about his investigation by NK authorities, conditions inside NK prisons, public executions in NK, and the biggest danger North Korean defectors face. There’s also a link there to order the book from

One of the insightful points Mr. Bae makes is that the story of captivity does not end for the Christian in a persecuted nation when he or she is released from prison. Instead, what happens after release from prison is in many ways the hardest time of all. Fortunately, as Mr. Bae affirms, it is thus the time when God’s grace shines the brightest.

Great stuff. I hope you’ll take time to watch each of the interview segments this week as part of your own personal study of ransoming the captive this month.
