About the Book

The Good Soldier Running on the Road of Hope is the life story of author Elie Hasbani. Born in Lebanon, Elie, as the firstborn son, held a position of privilege and entitlement, dictated by the cultural tradition within which he was raised. He could do no wrong from his family’s perspective and was given anything he wanted. With the position of first son, however, also came responsibilities and expectations that Elie found difficult to fulfill. He wanted the privileges, but not always the responsibilities; and so, he began at a young age to run, not away, but through the questions with which he continually wrestled.

Elie’s protected world was turned upside down when war broke out in Lebanon. As a young man, he stepped in to defend his beloved Lebanon and became embroiled in the twists and turns of a complicated political and military situation. Within this chaos, God began to work in Elie’s life to answer some of the questions that plagued him; through what most would view as a tragic event, God would change Elie’s life forever.
