Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran - Roxana Saberi In divinity school, I read a book by John Howard Yoder titled "What Would You Do If?" It helped deepen my convictions as a pacifist, and made me ask tough questions about what I would do as a nonviolent activist in certain difficult situations. Similarly, Roxana Saberi's book kept confronting me with difficult, soul searching questions. What would I do if I were sent to Prison in Tehran? Could I handle solitary confinement with no certainty of coming out the other side alive? What if I could not tell my loved ones what was actually happening to me? Honestly, I have no idea how I would respond. I can only hope that I would show half as much courage as displayed by Roxana Saberi.

I love this book, and have become a great admirer of Roxana's work following her release from prison. I look forward to reading her future works!
