A new book is coming out this week and it will certainly bring with it much controversy.  No, it is not Kingdom Gains, my work in progress but we hope to have some pre-order activity for that coming soon.  The book I am referring to was highlighted in the weekend Wall Street Journal, The Son of Hamas.  This book tells the story of Mosab Hassan Yousef who is the son of one of the founders of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas who has since converted to Christianity. 

This is a monumental event for any Muslim who chooses to accept Christ as their Savior and move from their family heritage and tradition.  No more familial support; no more family activities; hardly any family time together in any way other than perhaps confrontational challenges to their sanity.  This is one of the hardest concepts for Americans to appreciate or understand because we have already broken down many of our family traditions but even more so because freedom of religion is something we respect.  It is difficult to portray the cultural changes that happen to a Muslim person who converts in a society that is so dominated by those traditions.

That is why Mr. Yousef’s words were so compelling.  “The problem is not in Muslims, he continues. The problem is with their God. They need to be liberated from their God. He is their biggest enemy. It has been 1,400 years they have been lied to.”  Many people would like to kill him for this kind of statement and for his actions.  I am dwarfed by the courage and perception of this new brother in the Lord.  Not only am I anxious to read this book, I am hopeful that I can accept the greatest challenges to my faith with a thread of courage similar to Mr. Yousef.  As he is praying for other Middle Easterners to know Christ, think of who God is calling you to share the Good News of the Gospel with today!

 Psalm 5:4-6 (NIV) “You are not a God who takes pleasure in evil; with you the wicked cannot dwell. The arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong. You destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the Lord abhors.”
