Abstract:

The story of an Iraqi's conversion from Islam to Christianity, and how this effects him and his family.

During his military service, Muhammad, a young Muslim Iraqi from a leading Shiite family, discovers that his roommate is a Christian. Muhammad tries to convert his roommate, but he is the one who is converted. In Islam changing one's religion is a crime, and Muhammad's family does everything possible to make him renounce his new faith in Christ. Muhammad, who has become Joseph by his baptism, risks everything-- family, friends, his inheritance and home, and even his life-- and reveals the horrible persecution endured by Christians living in a violent and hostile Muslim world.
