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 1842nd best seller. The ISBN for Taken on Trust is 9781473637115.

Publisher's Description

New edition of Terry Waite's seminal memoir, celebrating 25 years since his release - with a new foreword and final chapter

Terry Waite's personal account of his harrowing experiences as a hostage in Beirut. This book gives a fascinating insight into human life on the edge - the things people are willing to do to each other, and what it feels like to be treated in that way. Terry's endurance in the face of unimaginable suffering and long days spent in solitary confinement makes for a compelling tale.

This new edition includes an updated foreword and new final chapter conveying just a few of the many and varied experiences that came Terry's way post-release, and conveying his passionate engagement in Middle East issues since his release 25 years ago, an issue of just as much relevance today as ever.
