In July 1973, Bob Tininenko; his wife, Linda; and his brother in-law, Jim Fisher, set sail from Tacoma, Washington, on a thirty-one-foot trimaran down the West Coast to Costa Rica. The journey was expected to take a matter of weeks, but ten days into the cruise, the party encountered a freak storm off the coast of northern California. When gale-force winds and fifty-foot waves capsized their boat, the voyage became a nightmare. For seventy-two days, the trio was lost at sea. Challenged by nature and compromised by a bitter rivalry, their courage and will to live was put to the ultimate test. Jim, the owner and skipper of the boat, was a devout fundamentalist whose recognition of God's will in every event brought him into increasing conflict with his brother-in-law. As the two men battled to take control of a dire situation, Linda kept a secret that would lead to heartrending tragedy. A 'hair-raising' (Houston Chronicle) account of shipwreck and survival and a searing portrait of faith without reason, Lost! is an unforgettable true story from 'a writer of tremendous power and achievement' (Detroit Free Press).

About Christian people, not a Christian book. Beware.
This was quite an interesting book. I would say worth the read (or listen) for an adult who has a long drive ahead of him, but please do not listen to this with Kids in the car! Most of it is perfectly innocent, but there is a scene that is absolutely blasphemous and filthy. So please do not listen with the kids! It's very unfortunate because the scene is completely unnecessary to the story and kind of ruined it for Christian listening which is what this Christian Audio site is supposed to be for.
