Faith Beyond Belief: A Journey to Freedom by David Eberly

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 when he was shot down in the Iraqi desert, evading the enemy, and held 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 suffered while in Saddam’s grasp. The uplifting message delivered 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 us.
