Beginning in a boarding school in India, this is the story of a young Somali who encountered Christ in a way that was to profoundly impact and transform his life. Who are you Lord? is the denouement of a twenty-four year spiritual trek across countries as diverse as India, Norway and Ethiopia. In developing his theological arguments, the author draws on fields as diverse as sociology, education, science and philosophy. This book portrays the contemporary status of Western Christianity through the lens of a Somali convert. In affirming the salvific truths of the Bible, some of the questions it grapples with include: Is science commensurate with faith? Can civil religion function as a viable alternative to genuine Biblical faith? Is God still supernaturally interacting with people in the 21st century?
