Top Customer Reviews
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.
Wario endured more than five years of persecution. His family rejected him, more than one brother attempted to beat him, a sister tried to poison him, members of his small tribal community berated him, chased him, threw rocks at him, stole his property, lied about him, and conspired with local authorities to arrest or otherwise harass him.
This book is both engaging and moving. You cannot learn about the challenge, risk, and total commitment of Wario's youth without comparing the experiences of his young life to your own. Reading the book makes you grateful for spiritual liberty in Christ and political/personal liberty in a democratic and open society.
I highly recommend this book. Wario's story is a reminder that Americans must become wiser and more conversant in the ways of Islam in order to engage Muslims properly, both spiritually and politically, at home and abroad.
