Publisher Comments:

What caused an ex-militant Muslim who fought Christians during the Lebanese Civil War to leave his baggage of hatred behind and learn to love his enemies?

AN EX-ISLAMIC MILITANT'S JOURNEY OF FAITH

Jerry Rassamni's story begins with his "physical Jihad" (physical struggle) against Christians during the bloody Lebanese  Civil War. After recounting his gripping early years, the narrative briskly shifts to Jerry's "personal Jihad" (spiritual struggle into enlightenment) as he attempted to refute the Bible. This book reveals the gripping evidence that led Jerry to abandon Islam and embrace Christ at his Lord and Savior.

While describing his search for the truth, Jerry exposes the pagan roots of the Muslim god and the feet of clay of its founder, while providing a careful apologetic for Christianity, Jerry shares the evidence the evidence that compelled him to abandon Islam and undrapes the "Five pillars" to expose the skeletons of Islam:

* Allah, is he the eternal God of the Bible?

* The Qur'an, it is the true word of God?

* The prophet Muhammad, was he a Biblical prophet?

* Man, is he born in fitrab (pure state)?

* Abadith (Muslim customs & beliefs), are they from God?

 

Synopsis:

Jerry Rassamni was a militant Muslim who hated Christians and warred against them. After immigrating to the US, Jerry's life shifted to his "personal Jihad," — attempting to refute Christianity. This attempt led him to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. This ex-militant Muslim shares the evidence that compelled him to abandon Islam. In the same way that Islam boasts of five pillars of the faith, Jerry points out "five exposition pillars" that undrape and expose the skeletons of Islam:
  • Allah, is he the eternal God of the Bible?
  • The Qur'an, is it the true word of God?
  • The prophet Muhammad, was he a Biblical prophet?
  • Man, is he born in fitrah (pure state)?
  • Ahadith (Muslim customs and beliefs,) are they from God?
This book offers a forceful and compelling evangelistic tool in a careful apologetic approach. It dismantles Islam by embodying the whole of the debate in a systematic and intuitive structure.
