    1 thought on “Total Abandon

    1. No one wants to give a less than five star review for a story like this. Gary and Bonnie Witherall were called to missionary work in Lebanon. They had both been interested in and involved in evangelism for a number of years and were enthusiastic and passionate about the work they were called to. Bonnie in particular became involved in ministering in a women's clinic where she shared the Gospel when possible and handed out Bibles and tracts. They were obviously working mostly with Muslims. The wo [...]

    2. A story of a missionary couple who wasn't afraid to follow the call God gave them to go to a dangerous place. The tragedy that occurs and how he walks through it is encouraging. The book is written from a very close perspective and almost like he's talking right to you.

    3. Gary Witherall understands what "total abandon" really means. He tells how he met his future wife, Bonnie Penner, while attending classes at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. They both felt the call of God on their lives to serve in the mission field.Gary and Bonnie were married in April of 1997. After their marriage, they moved into a comfortable home in Portland, Oregon, and went to work in the debt collection department of a bank. Three years passed and they became supervisors at the bank [...]

    4. The book is an excellent source for hope. All I thought about is that this book will make me cry or pang my heart but it never did. I just smiled and wowed myself up to the last page. It wasn't a book of mourning but rather a book of abandonment--of self, life, love, anger, war and revenge.The first part tells about Gary's life and how Jesus saved him. It was inspiring that I wanted to ride MV Logos II, too. I wanted to travel the world in Jesus' name. Then, their love story shone above the rest [...]

    5. In Total Abandon, the reader is encouraged and devastated, exalted for one's faith and humbled by the timidity of it. One is ultimately challenged with the question: "What is my testimony of faith?"Like many Believers in Christ, I have wondered if I could have, as the 12 disciples did, just "pull up stakes," leaving behind the security and familiarity of my chosen lifestyle, to say "YES" to Christ's call. What does it really take for men and women to wholly give themselves to Christ; to dare to [...]

    6. I read this in a few hours. It had been on my to-read list for a couple years and recommended to me, though I am unsure who told me about it. Gary explains his testimony and his wife Bonnie's testimony. They both had a heart for the mission field and did not really know where to go, but decided to go to Lebanon despite the wars they had gone through a few years earlier. He shares how Jesus used them each there and how his wife was martyred (though there are many unanswered questions about who di [...]

    7. The Witherall story gives a different perspective on the Mid-East situation. They went to show love and forgiveness to a culture that celebrates the death of those who don't believe as they do. Despite the danger after 9/11 they staid, and paid a dear price. However they are not bitter. They truly believe they message they preached. Jesus came to forgive sins and offer us Heaven. They could do no less than share that message with others.

    8. Total Abandon is penetrating, honest and touching. It captures a passion for following Jesus. Bonnie Witherall’s martyrdom has touched many, but this book is about much more than her death. It’s a powerful story of God calling His people to serve, suffer, trust and find joy and purpose. May the story of Gary and Bonnie Witherall challenge, deepen and rekindle the fire of first love.

    9. Eine Besprechung des Buches "Total Abandon" von Gary Witherall habe ich auf meinen Blog unter veröffentlicht: mt1820today.wordpress/201

    10. I met Gary at a conference this summer and bought his book there. I was touched by his openness in telling the story of his wife's murder when they served as missionaries in Lebanon. This is a very special book by a very special person.

    11. A quick read from a husband whose wife was martyred in Lebanon in 2002. I've met Gary twice, and like how his writing here is similar to how he talks/communicates. A good reminder that rarely is the call to the nations comfortable, easy or safe, but always worth it.

    12. wow What a sacrifice for this couple ministering in southern Lebanon. Great missions books. This is a true counting the cost ministry.

    13. This was a very interesting, real, and refreshing story. I want to read more stories about Christian martyrs and missionaries.
