Faith Beyond Belief is a testimony of the unquestioned, personal faith of David Eberly, the senior allied prisoner of the Gulf War. We are with him when his F-15E is hit by a surface-to-air missile, as he evades the enemy in the Iraqi desert, and as he endures forty-three days and nights in the cold, dark cells of Baghdad. We descend into a black hole and witness the courage of a man confronted with fear, dismal isolation, starvation and psychological torment in Saddam's prisons. Together, we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, and ultimately, share his journey to freedom.
