Faith Beyond Belief is a captivating testimony of personal faith
by the senior allied prisoner of the Gulf War. This dramatic
recollection puts you in his F-15E cockpit at shootdown, in the
Iraqi desert evading the enemy, and in the cells of Baghdad.
Together, you walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death and
along his journey to freedom.
By real example it profoundly reflects the importance of faith and
focus in life. No one has explained more intensely the experience
of being hit by an exploding enemy missile, the agony of capture,
and the dismal isolation and starvation in Saddam's grasp. The
uplifting message under these unimaginable conditions holds promise
for those who feel perplexed by life's challenges.
This book is for believers and non-believers, for young and old,
and for all who may ever doubt their own inner strength or who may
be unfamiliar with the inner courage and comfort that illuminate
from God's promise to care for you.
