For the first time, Kenneth Bae tells the full story surrounding his arrest and imprisonment in North Korea.
Not Forgotten is a modern story of intrigue, suspense, and heart. Driven by his passion to help the people of North Korea, Bae moves to neighboring China to lead guided tours into the secretive nation. Six years later, after 18 successful excursions in and out of the country, Ken is suddenly stopped at the border: He inadvertently brought his hard drive, which reveals the true nature of his visits, to customs. He is arrested, brought to Pyongyang for further questioning, and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. His crime? Attempting to overthrow the North Korean government. He may never see his family again.
Back in America, family and friends rally support by establishing a website and creating a petition for Ken's release. Soon major media outlets decry Ken's unjust imprisonment, bringing needed attention that culminates in President Obama's call for prayer on behalf of Ken at the 2014 National Prayer Breakfast. Meanwhile Ken grapples with his new solitary reality as a captive of one of the world's most brutal governments.
From the first harrowing moments of his ordeal to his release - and even today - Ken never wavers in his love for the North Korean people, even his captors. Not Forgotten is both a compelling narrative of one man's dedication to serving the less fortunate and a modern testament of a missionary forced to rely solely on the god who sent him into dangerous territory. Listeners will marvel at the rare firsthand tour of life inside the most shrouded country on the planet, meeting its people, experiencing their daily lives, taking in the landscape, and encountering the tyranny of a totalitarian regime. With its combined spiritual and secular appeal, this never-before-told story is sure to captivate and inspire listeners of all ages.
