A Story of Faith, Courage, and Love in Lebanon
Frances Fuller spent thirty years in the violent Middle East and for twenty-four of those years was the director of a Christian publishing program with offices in Lebanon. Now she has published a memoir and is generously donating 50% of ebook proceeds to Witness As Ministry.
In Borrowed Houses, a memoir of love and faith amidst war in Lebanon is both an award-winning spiritual memoir and an up-close, inside view of a Middle East country engulfed in civil war. Through it, readers share the experience of ordinary people, trying to go on with their lives while their nation, torn by inherent internal divisions, also endures invasions and occupations by foreign armies.
A few Americans, faithful to this little country and their own roles of service, endure danger and chaos along with Lebanese friends and coworkers, becoming witnesses of historic events. One of these, Frances Fuller, director of a small Christian publishing house, tells her own painful yet joyful story, which is intertwined always with stories of the people with whom she daily interacted. In the process she gives us a glimpse of the human face of today’s Middle East.
