Terence AscottTerence "Terry" Ascott was born in the UK but has lived in the Middle East since the early 1970s, where he has was involved in the launch of a Christian Arabic newsstand magazine, and then started a Christian television network. He has lived through civil wars and unrest, kidnappings, detentions, and was deported from Egypt over human rights issues.
His new book, Dare to Believe! is not just his own exciting, personal story but it will give the reader inspiring insights into the courageous work and witness of the diverse Christian communities of the Middle East and North Africa, some of whom date their history back to the time of the apostles.
The book will also help the reader understand the challenges Terry faced in developing the new model of Christian television that typifies SAT-7 - an indigenous network which today broadcasts to millions in Arabic, Turkish and Farsi.
