Terry Waite Twin-Pack

Full Product Description

The man with the remarkable story, Terry Waite tells of his time in capture, and his subsequent life since, in these two new books which bring a biographical and a poetic expression to God's work in his life.


Out of the Silence

At the height of the Lebanese civil war in the 1980s over 100 foreign civilians were taken hostage by Islamic Jihad. As the Archbishop of Canterbury's special envoy, Terry Waite conducted several successful missions to negotiate the release of numerous hostages. But in January 1987, while on one of his many visits to Beirut, he was captured himself.

Imprisoned for nearly five years, four of them in solitary confinement, he was chained, beaten, frequently blindfolded, and subjected to a mock execution. In this moving sequence of poems and reflections Terry Waite recalls the highs and lows of his life, both during that ordeal and throughout the happier years of humanitarian work that have followed.

They give us a glimpse into the depths of faith, hope and love that sustained him through that intense time of suffering. They also take us into memories of his later life, reminding us of the joy and contentment to be found in meaningful work, and in the humanity we share each day with those around us.

Out of the Silence not only offers a rare insight into one man's experience in the throes of a bitter conflict of the past; it also bears witness to the enduring power of forgiveness, truth and reconciliation in the face of adverse forces at work in the world today.

Taken on Trust (Expanded and Updated)

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.
