More About the Author

Hussein Hajji Wario is a former Kenyan Sunni Muslim who was educated in madrassa (Islamic religious school) during his formative years. Upon graduation from madrassa, he became a madrassa teaching assistant and a muadhin (a person who calls Muslims to pray) in his native hometown. He converted to Christianity in August 1989. His people group, the Orma, is one of the "unreached people groups" in the world because more than 99.98 percent is Muslim. He is only the second Orma to convert to Christianity.

Format: Paperback
An intense story of the author's struggle to leave Islam, the religion he was raised up in, and the numerous attempts on his life for embracing Christianity. Along his journey, the author discusses several inconsistencies with Islam between theology and its practice and how it affects the Muslim - Christian dialogue.

The author was formally trained in both an Islamic Madrassa and a Christian University -- having experienced both religions in personal and dramatic ways. It is from this perspective that he is able to discuss these controversial issues in ways few others could.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Charles R. Wiese on June 6, 2009
Format: Paperback
Hussein was born and raised in Kenya as a Sunni Muslim. He converted to Christianity and suffered great persecution--his only family tried to poison him! This book is an autobiography and I highly recommend it. He points out many contradictions in the Qur'an and helps provide an understanding of Muslim culture. The beginning and the end of the book were a little difficult--Hussein writes tends to write in Kenyan English rather than American English. But it's not that difficult and it is well worth the effort. Hussein's story provides encouragement to all who suffer persecution for the sake of Christ. It is also a helpful tool, our own culture seems to be wrestling more and more with how to deal with and respond to Islam.

This book presents the stark contrast between Christianity and Islam in a true story narrative. Anyone who is interested in knowing the difference in thought and belief between the two should buy this book and read it.
