About the Book

The Reverend Benjamin M. Weir was seized on the streets of Beirut by a group of Shiite Muslim extremists in May of 1984. The painful ordeal of his sixteen months' imprisonment is now described from the points of view of Ben, in captivity, and of his wife, Carol, who worked long and tirelessly to secure his release. Beyond the poignant human story, Hostage Bound, Hostage Free sheds light on urgent questions concerning America's involvement, and the church's presence, in troubled lands.
