Taken on Trust
Full Product Description
Twenty-five years ago Terry Waite was released from being kidnapped in Beirut, Lebanon. For four long years he was imprisoned, often in solitary confinement, his family not knowing whether he was even alive or not.
Throughout his arduous capture he still managed to display an unceasing perseverance and resolve as he lived not knowing he would survive to see his family ever again.
This is his fascinating story.
This is the story of how a hostage negotiator who also worked for Archbishop of Canterbury across the globe and who travelled between countries and helped see the release of several hostages in life-or-death situations suddenly found himself on the other side of the negotiation's line.
Since the first edition of Taken on Trust was released in 1993 Terry Waite travelled back to Beirut on a journey of reconciliation as he actively sought out those who captured him back in 1987.
For 1,763 days they held him as hostage, yet still he travels back to Beirut to forgive.
And now, in this new and updated edition of Taken on Trust which celebrates twenty-five years of freedom for Terry, discover how his harrowing time spent in capture radically changed his faith and outlook on life. With a new foreword and final new chapter which brings the extraordinary story to a close, this is the perfect way to experience this profound story of faith and perseverance.
Taken on Trust by Terry Waite was published by Hodder & Stoughton in September 2016 and is our 3035th best seller. The ISBN for Taken on Trust is 9781473637115.
