In 1968 an Emory University student, Barbara Mackle, was kidnapped by a dangerous psychopath for ransom. She was buried alive underground in a coffin-like box. Her wealthy father, Robert Mackle, was willing to pay the ransom – about 20 million dollars in today’s value to save his daughters’ life.
If you were kidnapped, would anybody pay up to twenty million dollars for you? Does anybody love you that much?
Like Barbara Mackle in that dirt-covered box unable to deliver herself, the human race was doomed unless help came from above. In a sense, we are all in a box without hope, unless a ransom is paid. And this is where Someone intervened.
