The House I Left Behind, A journey from Islam to Christ

THE CHURCH LIBRARY HAS FOR YOU : After a recent visitor, on speaking tour in Adelaide: A book and DVD for you to borrow; bringing a Christian’s timely warning message. Daniel Shayesteh – ‘The house I left behind, A journey from Islam to Christ’. This is the biography of a Muslim boy in Iran. Although the Taleshi language was his mother tongue, he could quote the Koran in Arabic at age nine! He grew up to become a politician in the Muslim driven revolution which ousted the Shah of Persia, in the hope of a better, democratic society. This is a riveting, revealing story of success, disappointment and betrayal, imprisonment, escape and ultimate freedom found in Christ, in Turkey and Australia. Already two BCUC Home Groups have benefited from watching the DVD together.
