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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is an enviable directness, strength and even holiness about Terry Waite...He has added a new chapter, bringing his story up to date, and reflecting briefly on the current state of the Middle East. * The Telegraph *
Mr Waite was held captive, mostly in solitary confinement, chained and often blindfolded, for 1,763 days before his release on 18 November 1991. Now aged 77, he returned to the former RAF base where his plane landed, and where he stayed for several weeks as he began to get his life back to normal. * BBC News *
Fascinating account of a brave man...his experience gives him the right to be listened to when he pleads for the establishment of trust between ordinary people of different races, cultures and religions. * Reform Magazine *
Waite's compelling autobiography...a moving account of Waite's 1,763 days in captivity. * The Church Newspaper *
As powerful today as it was as it was when first read in the 1990s...The new introduction written for the updated version of his work perhaps offers the clearest insight into his motivation. * Life and Work Magazine - *
Compelling reading. * Families First *
Taken on Trust can be read as a historical document...but more interestingly, I think it can be read as a meditation on faith and an exploration of the mystery of God. * The Door *
