Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "The Lord is Good!"

    This is one of those books that you will want to read again and again, especially when one finds themselves in a bind or situation that causes great hardship. As a born again Christian, people ask me questions about God and why, if there is such a being as God does He allow bad things to happen. Through the years, I have gotten better at answering this question, displaying the answer and have been more compassionate with the people who ask, always giving praise even in the hardest of times. There is a line in this book that will stay with me forever, "...Sometimes, you are the only Jesus some people will ever see..." I truly, with all my heart, believe this. But, as Mr. Bae felt low and wondered if he was forgotten about, we all feel this way from time to time. Along with my Bible, this is the book I also plan to turn to when feeling low. I will continue to pray for Mr. Bae's Godly works and for the people of North Korea. 🙏

    "Very good story."

    This was a great story. Unbelievable that it took place just 2-3 yrs ago. It is always good to hear about real stories of people and faith, and what sacrifice looks like.

    "Encouraged for the Glory of God"

    Kenneth Bae's story is an encouraging confirmation of my own personal prayers. What a joy to know God has a plan and is working all things for His glory in His time.

    Story
    "Good story, narration wasn't well suited to it."

    The story is good. But the narrators voice did not fit. It did not "put you there". It was overly relaxed and too American for being told by a Korean man who wasn't an American till he was a 16. I wish I had read it instead of listening.

    Story
    "Way to much GOD... He is brain washed just as much"

    He makes Americans look like sheep and makes himself look brain washed... Really stupid Christian. It was your stupid religion that got you in trouble in the first place. I hate the North Korean government. But i hate this religious freak more. Wish he would have learned something there. The story would have been good but its just caked with to much religious Propaganda. He's just as bad as the kims.

    Story
    "A little heavy on God, but an incredible story!"

    An incredible account of survival, patience and the human spirit - though it was a little too religious for me, it was clearly a message Kenneth wanted to share and what kept him going, therefore I have no right to judge.
    an incredible book and a fantastic narrator! highly recommended!

    Story
    "Another compelling story from North Korea"

    I have listened to many books about North Korea. This book was very interesting but I found the narration difficult to listen to and the repeated biblical quotes for some reason irritated me.
    Never the less, this almost unbelievable story is well worth a listen. This man has incredible strength.
