The year was 1975, and the Lebanese civil war had begun. In 15 years of fighting between Muslims and Christians, over 100,000 died in a war that nearly destroyed Lebanon. From Jihad to Jesus: An Ex-militant’s Journey of Faith tells us the story of Jerry Rassami from the days when he was a former Islamic militant in the civil war fighting against Christians to finding freedom in Christ. After escaping Lebanon, Rassamni eventually made his way into the United States. Living in America, he encountered the love of Jesus Christ through the sincere and genuine love of Christians and it gradually melted his hardened heart. Upon examining the Word of God, Rassamni was convicted of his sin and he had a personal encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. And so, during a Sunday morning church service in October, of 1998, Rassamni accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. The book also provides a critical analysis that debunks Islam by addressing five very basic questions concerning man, the Qur’an, Mohammed, Allah, and Muslim customs. From Jihad to Jesus is an inspiring book with a very unique look into the background beginning with hatred and violence, but ending with love and redemption.
