Welcome to From Jihad to Jesus
Thank you for taking a few moments and stopping by. This site is
intended to provide you with information regarding the book "From Jihad
to Jesus" as well as its’ author Jerry Rassamni.
Jerry Rassamni grew up as militant Muslim fighting
against Christians during the Lebanese Civil War. The author of From
Jihad to Jesus: An Ex-Militant’s Journey of Faith (Living Ink Books) is
no longer a sniper caught in a succession of endless blood feuds or
anti-West hatred. A former Islamic militant, Jerry came to see
something that some never perceive in a lifetime. “In my Jihad, I came
face to face with a frightening discovery: the true human heart. I saw
it exposed behind the masks of piety, behind the lies of purity, and
behind the sham of godliness, and I beheld the heart of darkness. I saw
the evil that belies the human heart, and I was changed by the horror
of it.” Rassamni continues, “Subsequently, I dared to question... my
religious infrastructure. I had the courage to think freely,
unencumbered by my tradition and idealism. I looked, and what I saw
changed me forever.”
After escaping Lebanon,
Rassamni eventually made his way into the United States long before
9/11. The love of Christians gradually melted his hardened heart.
Having seen the darkness in his own heart, he began to question his
inherited beliefs but found it difficult to consider Christianity. “I
thought, ‘me become a Christian? You must be kidding me! Christians
ministered to me with their bullets in Lebanon. Furthermore, Christ was
a Jew.” His hesitation soon gave way as “I read about a God who loved
me so much that He paid the price for my sins, so that I could come
before the throne of the Creator of the universe, and call Him Baba” –
affectionate word for father in Arabic. Jerry continues: “This
revelation rocked my world.” Rassamni soon recognized that hatred is
not an attribute of the Almighty but that God is love.
says, “Cold blooded murder is evil. Love is superior to hatred. Freedom
is more precious than suppression. Truth is nobler than plagiarism.” He
explains that Islam mercilessly crushes dissent.
Islam holds 22 percent of the world’s population within its grasp,
Rassamni believes that many people follow their faith out of ignorance,
fear, or both. Rassamni says: “This book contains my excavation of the
truth and emancipation from the shackles of pride and idealism. This
journey is not for the faint of heart, nor the automaton, but it is for
the bold seeker of truth that burns within oneself and which cannot be
silenced, no matter the price.”
continues, “In our quest for the truth, we must never be afraid to
question—for not to question is slavery of the mind on the altar of
ignorance. It is the greatest irony that men and women live and die
enslaved without ever peering beneath the surface, without looking for
the truth. I could have lived and died as a slave to ideas I had
cherished much of my life, if like Pilate, I hadn’t take the time to
look beneath the surface of those beliefs. Instead, I chose to examine
the evidence in search of the truth.”
in the introduction, “I would like to acknowledge the Muslims of the
world. I love you from the inner depths of my spirit, and it is for you
that I write this book. I have some good news for you. You do not have
to spend the rest of your lives fearing the Day of Judgment as I used
to. Christ has already atoned for your sins...”

powerful manuscript is a potential best seller… It is
meticulously researched and documented... It is a careful
apologetic for evangelical Christianity, made even more potent because
it is written by an ex-Muslim.” Dr David Shibley, President of Global Advance
