Abstract:

What caused an ex-militant Muslim who fought Christians during the Lebanese Civil War to reject his religious heritage and to embrace Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior? What transformed a man who thrived on hatred, a man who shot at a Christian for tolling a church bell to leave his baggage of hatred behind and to learn to love even his enemies? What were the events, and the thought evolution that precipitated a man who blasphemed the name of Christ, to worship and adore Him as the Son of the Living God? The book begins with the "Physical Jihad" of Jerry Rassamni as a militant Druze Muslim warring against Christians during the Lebanese Civil War. The narrative briskly shifts to Jerry's "Personal Jihad"--Journey to spiritual enlightenment. While attempting to refute Christianity, Jerry was instead convicted of his own sin, and in need for a savior. This led him to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. This ex-militant Muslim shares the powerful evidence that compelled him to abandon Islam and trust in Christ as his Savior. - Publisher.
