This is the thrilling story of a Kurdish doctor, his acceptance as a mullah and teacher of his people, his struggles in turning from Islam to Christianity, his resulting banishment and persecution, and his faithfulness and service to his Lord.
All this adds up to a fabulous tale, more absorbing than fiction or a mystery, yet all of it is true. Not in many years has such a moving narrative come out of the Middle East. This story of the highest Christian courage is told against a backdrop of events that brought this region once more into focus, as a center of world political struggle and importance." You will be challenged and encouraged by the struggles and triumphs of a Christian in a country steeped in Islam.
