Armenian Martyrs’ Congregational Church

A memoir spanning more than a half-century of academic and pastoral work, from Lafayette College in Pennsylvania to Haigazian College in Beirut, Lebanon. In 1955 Dr. Markarian became the founding president of Haigazian, currently one of the most respected universities in the Middle East.

Published by the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA), this book describes not only the background of the founding years of the college, but takes the reader through the dangerous and difficult years of civil war in Lebanon. It is a testimony to the author’s principle of “overcoming evil with good”.

Come and meet Dr. Markarian as he discusses his book, The Thirsty Enemy, and get your copy signed.

Copies will be available for $24.95 each.
