Format: Hardcover
An international relief worker and missionary since 1999, Carrie McDonnall fell in love with the Middle East and married a man with the same passion, David, in 2002. On March 15, 2004, the couple, along with three other aid workers, spent the day surveying the needs at a refugee camp in northern Iraq. On their way back into the safe zone in Kurdish-held territory, militants ambushed their truck and Carrie would be the only one to survive.

FACING TERROR, written by Carrie with help from popular author Kristin Billerbeck, recounts the harrowing events of the day that would forever change her life. But far from being a cautionary tale, FACING TERROR is a call to serve Christ wherever one lives and is, at its core, a love story --- a story of love between a man and a woman, and a story of the love those two people shared for the Arab world.

David and Carrie met in Bethlehem on New Year's Day 2000. Despite the location, it was a rather inauspicious start to their romance. Introduced by fellow "journeymen," Carrie spent the time mistakenly calling David "Nathan" and thought little about him when the holiday was over. But when they were re-introduced several months later at a sports camp for local youth, she took more notice. "There was a spark within him that just lit up the dark sky. He was genuinely warm and friendly, he was a wonderful storyteller, and he was funny. I hoped this wasn't the last time we'd met, and although I can't say my romantic pursuits were obvious, I didn't want this man just to walk out of my life," she writes.

During that stage of their ministries, Carrie was living out of a converted shipping container in Israel's West Bank and David was traveling all over Africa and the Middle East.

Format: Hardcover
As one who has lived many years in seven different Middle Eastern countries (including Jordan and Lebanon) and who is a Christian but not a missionary, I can greatly recommend Carrie's book for more than its wonderful love story between Carrie and David. Her descriptions of life in that area are real. By that I mean she describes wonderfully and accurately experiences many of us have lived. Her descriptions are an excellent way to get a "feel" for that part of the world that one cannot get from the general media and current events. I found myself nodding in recognition continually and wanting to run out for more books to send to friends, saying "This is what I have been trying to tell you for so many years!"

I too have met her briefly and heard her speak. My friends in Jordan knew her and David well. The greater love story to hear is her love for Christ and her willingness to be used for His purposes. I will watch with interest to see what else He has for this remarkable young woman.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Carrie Cosner on August 11, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This moving book allows the reader to experience the lives of devoted missionaries, their lives in the Middle East, and their love of the Arab Muslims that eventually cost Carrie McDonnall her health and the life of her husband and 3 other fellow workers.

It is well written and riveting. I've already given a copy to three people and have to keep replenishing my own copy.

I appreciate Carrie's bold challenge to the church today to share the Gospel message and have bold love for others.

The song the LORD gave her during recovery and the vision of Jesus and His call was especially inspiring and challenging.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jane Smith on August 17, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book gives a very heartwarming and interesting insight to what people that happen to be missionaries have seen and experienced in a world most of us will never have an opportunity to visit. All we hear is the media's version of what is going on in third world countries. This book gives us an everyday feel for what is truly going on and the happiness and goodness that occurs as well. My heart goes out to Carrie and her and David's family and the trauma and tradgedy that she has experienced and will continue to experience for a very long time. Thank you for sharing your world with us and may God continue to bless you!

Format: Paperback
Carrie McDonnall writes a fascinating and very personal story of her stay in the middle east and at the same time of her husband's passion for the Muslim people. The story of how they reached Iraq, separately and then together is heart-warming and inspiring. Carrie's love for her husband reaches out from the page. You can feel it as the story unfolds. This is a love story, a cultural review and inspiring account of their journey of faith all in one. Read this book to gain an entirely new perspective on the Muslim people and life in the Middle East.

It moves my heart to know that there are still young couples who are giving their lives to reach unreached peoples for Jesus Christ. This is the story of Carrie and David McDonall and their shared love for the Arab people. Carrie was a missionary in Israel and David was a missionary in Jordan. This is the story of how God brought them together, and how they paid the ultimate price for their Lord and Savior in ministry for Him in Iraq.

My prayer is that you will read this book and be challenged to serve the Lord with the same sacrificial love for people that Carrie and David had for people. It's a great book and one of the most touching books I've read this year.
