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?
"This powerful manuscript is a potential best seller. It is meticulously researched and documented. It is a careful apologetic for evangelical Christianity, made even more potent because it is written by an ex-Muslim."
