About-

The saving grace of God in Christ as a liberating experience of faith lies at the heart of The Prisoner’s Cross. The message is timeless and has its source in Jesus’s ministry and mission. Both Jop, a former POW, and Don, a graduate student, at different times and in different ways are in desperate need of this liberation. Jop serves as a witness to the power that grace has to liberate one from the worst possible tragedies and trauma they can experience in life. Don serves as one who desperately needs to hear this message. Don stands in for many Christians and spiritual seekers in our time. Like them, Don finds himself grappling with the lasting issues of injustice, suffering, and evil. Shaped by the influences of modern secularism and repulsed by the idolatry of church institutionalism, Don feels he has had the rug of a vital and relevant faith pulled out from underneath him. Like many, Don feels an unresolved anger, even rage, over the senseless injustices in his life that neither the institutional Christianity he encounters, or the secular culture that marginalizes and pervades it, have an antidote for.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“My friend, colleague, and confidant—Rev. Peter Unger—has done it again. Once I started to read I could not put it down; let yourself free into a story not afraid to offer truth. Unger does an incredible work taking the reader through a dark and often uncovered journey of suffering and injustices, especially in church. The shocking experiences of Don are not only emotionally moving but also keep the suspense of the entire book high. Reading one chapter, you seamlessly and inadvertently find yourself in the next chapter. It is simply thrilling and moving.”

—Michael Friedman, publisher, @skopemag



“I really enjoyed the book The Prisoner’s Cross. . . . it is very inspiring and so much of what a lot of families can relate to in today’s everyday living. I feel that this could be a great stepping-stone for people in their battle with faith and Christianity. Very well-written.”

—Michael Korpics, lay minister



“Wow! The Prisoner’s Cross delves deeply into Christ’s transforming nature through faith and perseverance. An eighty-year-old true story of the tragedy of POW camps and the resilient faith of the men who endured years of mistreatment saves Don Campbell, a seminary student, from the torture of his own doubts and misgivings. When everything is stripped away, Christ’s love is all we need to thrive!”

—Donald H. Seagreaves, retired educator, Powell, Wyoming
