Longwood, FL (PRWEB) August 31, 2008
Ever since the terrorist attack of 9/11, the words "war on terror" have become firmly embedded in the global consciousness. Are we to fall victim to bitterness and fear, or do we respond the way Christ would respond in sacrificial love? These are the questions everyone must answer, especially in light of recent news reports that who terrorist attacks are only getting worse.
In Lisa R. Gibson's new release from Christian self-publisher Xulon Press, Life in Death: A Journey from Terrorism to Triumph (paperback, 978-1-60647-564-5), the author tells the heart-wrenching story of the loss of her brother in the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, and how her faith has allowed her to overcome that act of evil for good by serving the country. This book offers hope and encouragement for those struggling with fear and inspires faith to propel everyone to engage in this strategic battle.
Says Gibson, "My hope is through my story that others will learn how to engage in the war on terror from a biblical perspective as well as find encouragement and wisdom to overcome their tragedies and become conduits of God s healing grace and power to others even the people responsible for their loss."
After losing her brother in the 1988 terrorist bombing, Gibson spent almost 20 years engaging in the war on terrorism. As a result, she has seen the power and restoration that comes from seeing true justice, forgiveness, and reconciliation in cases such as these. Now she is armed with a mission to impact society by addressing the root issues that result in human rights abuses, such as injustice, oppression, and terrorism around the world.
