    This is such a heartening book. Christ’s forgiveness, redemption, sustenance, and exclusivity are all prominent points. Then you have the glowing testimony of an obedient servant of Christ. It’s fascinating. Do you know about the Baptist Church in the Middle East? Did you know that it is a growing, evangelizing Church? How does their understanding of doctrine and eschatology affect their views on the ongoing Mid-East conflict? Was there any lasting impact of our involvement in Iraq?

Was there any lasting impact of our involvement in Iraq? Personally, it was very challenging. Would you give up your citizenship so you could spread the Gospel? Would you give up your wife and children? Would you live in a war zone? Would you obey? Would you like to see God intervene powerfully in a war? Would you like to see him transform the most unlikely people? This is the book for us.

    Exciting, convicting, eye-opening, and intense - Forward in the Face of Fear was everything I had hoped it would be. Each time I picked up the book, it was with the intent to just read a few pages, yet every time, I found myself, multiple chapters later, still struggling to put the book down.

Each time I picked up the book, it was with the intent to just read a few pages, yet every time, I found myself, multiple chapters later, still struggling to put the book down. Effortlessly tying in history with personal narrative, Feghary's book was an easy-read, full of exciting drama, inspiring faith, and true miracles. Though you don't have to be a history buff to enjoy this book, those who do enjoy history will appreciate the unique perspective of a Christian in the Middle East. This autobiography would also be a great option for a school project. And, for those who have a passion for mission work, I would consider this book a must read. However, even if none of those categories describe you, this is still a book that will help you grow spiritually and that you will be glad you have read. For me, particularly, the day I finished the book, I received some very distressing news. Instantly, my mind wandered back to my favorite part of the book (my second favorite part was the story of the military men and the children's Christmas gifts... Had me in tears!), this excerpt from chapter 8: "One of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned in my life is that every Christian must carry the yoke Christ gives to each of us. If we carry our God-given yokes and minister according to the Lord’s will and calling rather than our own preferences, no matter how heavy the yoke or how difficult the ministry, we will find His yoke is easy and brings incredible joy." I'm thankful for this invaluable reminder to help me through this trial! I'm sure you will find this story from a modern day hero-missionary, a true blessing!

    Just a couple of weeks ago I saw that Edgar Feghaly had written an autobiography. I was excited since we had supported him as a missionary and had helped him with some projects. I thought I knew his story but really only knew a small portion of the adventure that has been his life. For most of us, the Middle East is a mystery and a frightening prospect when considering it as a field of ministry.

I was excited since we had supported him as a missionary and had helped him with some projects. I thought I knew his story but really only knew a small portion of the adventure that has been his life. For most of us, the Middle East is a mystery and a frightening prospect when considering it as a field of ministry. Remarkably, we see in the pages of his life an opening to our understanding of the some reasons for the strife there. Also, here is an example of someone that has ministered there on a highly successful level. The book is standard in the sense that it starts with his boyhood and works forward. The chapters dealing with his family and their conversion were very enjoyable. I loved the look into a Lebanese family's life. From his early life, Lebanon has known war but that did not deter his zeal to do the work of God. Where we possibly see excuse to not speak, Feghaly saw opportunity to not only speak but give of his life. You follow the twists and turns of him, his family, Lebanon, and his ministry all the way up to present day. As you turn the pages I found adventure, drama, challenge, and as a Christian - conviction. I was deeply stirred to be and do more for the God I love. In this modern day missionary story, you have a textbook in dealing with difficulty, a guidebook in facing the unknown, and a motivational manuel for getting it done. I give this book a ringing endorsement. #Feghalybio I received this book to review from Striving Together Publications.

    Even if you’re not much of a biography reader, this book is for you. It’s dramatic, captivating, and engaging. It wasn’t, however, just the stories of miraculous protection from sniper fire or dramatic conversions from Islam that gripped me as I read it. It was the overarching story of what happens when a common soul is willing to trust in God’s great faithfulness—even in the face of incredibly fear-inducing obstacles. It was the testimony of a man joyfully serving the Lord in the midst of these. Even if you’re not much of a biography reader, this book is for you. It’s dramatic, captivating, and engaging.

It was the overarching story of what happens when a common soul is willing to trust in God’s great faithfulness—even in the face of incredibly fear-inducing obstacles. It was the testimony of a man joyfully serving the Lord in the midst of these. And it was the record of the power of the gospel to change hearts in dark places. Although the stories in this book are extreme, it’s not just a “Wow! What do I have to complain about?!” kind of book. It’s a “God can do anything! And in my life too!” kind of book. It’s the kind of book that tells you God’s power is dependable and His grace is transforming and both can be counted on at any time, in any place, by any Christian willing to follow Christ—even if going forward means facing overwhelming fear. If you’re looking for a book that will both engage your attention and strengthen your faith, I highly recommend!

    If you liked Brother Andrew's books, "A Table in the Presence" by Carey Cash, or "Revolution in World Missions" by KP Yohannann you will love Edgar Feghaly's autobiography.

If you like seeing pictures to go along with the stories you are reading in the book, you will be glad to know that there are a lot of pictures included at the back of this book as well. Missionaries are heroes and Edgar Feghaly is no exception. In this book includes stories that I could barely dream of as an American. He has lived in the midst of war and yet worked diligently to reach out with the gospel and plant churches. Missionary Feghaly is unique in that he has planted churches in many different and diverse places around the world. He has consistently stepped out of his comfort zone and yet moved forward for Christ in the face of fear. This book tells his story and includes a lot of Bible references to explain why he did what he did through out his life and ministry.

    I love reading, but most of my friends don’t share my same enthusiasm—especially when it comes to biographies and autobiographies. To a history lover you can imagine my dismay over this! But I do understand what they are getting at. Sometimes you read a biography, and it’s just boring. And autobiographies are even worse! I will admit I did have a bit of these prejudices when I started reading Forward in the Face of Fear by Dr. Edgar Feghaly. But they did not last long. Once I started the book, I I love reading, but most of my friends don’t share my same enthusiasm—especially when it comes to biographies and autobiographies. To a history lover you can imagine my dismay over this! But I do understand what they are getting at. Sometimes you read a biography, and it’s just boring. And autobiographies are even worse! I will admit I did have a bit of these prejudices when I started reading Forward in the Face of Fear by Dr. Edgar Feghaly. But they did not last long. Once I started the book, I could not put it down! I have never read a nonfiction book that kept my attention so well. Here are some reasons you should read Forward in the Face of Fear: 1. IT WILL CHALLENGE YOUR COMFORTABLE CHRISTIANITY. This book constantly shows a man who is fully surrendered to go wherever God wants him to go, even if that means leaving a comfortable life. When I read Dr. Feghaly’s story, I could not help but think of the Christians of yesteryear who were persecuted and martyred for the faith. I asked myself if I would be willing to suffer as they did for Christ. My heart aches inside me, because although I would readily say yes, I do not know for sure that I would. This troubles me, because how could I not be willing to die for the One who gave Himself for me? It is simple really— it is too far out of my comfort zone. Our Christianity today is so comfortable! We’re willing to settle for less of God to make our lives easier. Edgar Feghaly tells how he left a comfortable life in Canada to return to war-torn Lebanon with his wife and child. He was willing to witness in the midst insane circumstances such as shootings and bombings. He did so with no fear, knowing that the God who called him would see him through it. This constantly challenged my faith throughout the book. 2. IT SHOWS THE GOSPEL CAN AND DOES WORK ANYWHERE IF CHRISTIANS ARE WILLING TO SHARE IT! The gospel works! Sometimes we might think witnessing to a certain group of people is impossible, but it’s not! I love this book, because it shows time and time again that the gospel works all around the world if there is a Christian who is willing to share it. How many times have I not shared the gospel with someone because I was too afraid? One time is too many! Throughout Dr. Feghaly’s book I was challenged to share the gospel more, because it can and will make a difference—all I have to do is share it. 3. IT IS JUST AN AWESOME BOOK. The last point isn’t as compelling as the first two, but this book really is amazing. As I was reading it, every few chapters my eyes widened, my face got a huge smile, and I had to tell someone the latest insane story from it. I cried several times through the book from conviction, happiness, and just awe of God. I loved how this book shows that God still works today—all He needs is a willing servant! I hope that you read this book.

    Truly inspirational!! I would give it seven stars if it were possible. This book is one of the best missionary biographies I’ve ever read. It easily ranks on the upper echelon with Goforth of China. Dr. Feghaly’s dedicated service to the Lord in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the Middle East serves as an example to those of us who live in relative religious freedom to be bold in sharing our faith. He and his family have truly hazarded their lives in Christ’s service. After readin Truly inspirational!! I would give it seven stars if it were possible.

He and his family have truly hazarded their lives in Christ’s service. After reading of their faithfulness and boldness, we have no excuse for not sharing the Good News with neighbors, friends, family, co-workers, and others who cross our paths. This book was an encouragement: seeing what God is doing in areas of the world that we seldom hear about in regards to missions thrilled my soul. It was also a rebuke: with all Dr. Beghaly and his family have risked and even sacrificed for the cause of the Gospel, how can I not be bold in witnessing to others? What excuse could I possibly have for not sharing my faith? And ultimately it was a motivating challenge: we need to be busy carrying the message of salvation to the world around us, committed to carrying out the Great Commission. The stories recounted in this book are thrilling, as he shares testimony after testimony of the Lord’s provision and protection, not to mention the harvest of souls coming to a saving knowledge of Christ. I rarely read a book more than once (after all, there are so many books and so little time in the day!). But this book is one that I plan to read multiple times ... I’ll make the time, and it will be well worth it.

    Fascinating account of a Lebanese Christian living through the upheaval and turbulence of the Middle East from 1950's through present day. God's providence and protection carries him through many dangers and impossible situations. Very inspirational!

    Every man of God strives to be an Apostle Paul, and this is about a man who has done it. This biography is encouraging and challenging. The heart for missions bleeds through every story and captivates your mind and attention for reaching the Muslims of the Middle East. Every believer should read.

    Great to read some amazing stories of deliverance and life in Lebanon/the Middle East. Also the fact that Bro Feghaly is both a living missionary and one that we currently support makes the book more interesting.
