The True Path - by Faith

I have been reading a wonderful book called The True Path - Seven Muslims Make Their Greatest Discovery. It has been a very uplifting and encouraging book, and also helps in understanding better the Muslims perceptions of Christianity and God's Word. I'm not quite done with it yet, but it will be available in the near future if anyone would like to borrow - I highly recommend it!

Here is a quote from the book:

"Finally, I said to myself: "Sultan, consider that you are the child of an hour and the world is fleeting. When you die, your country and your inheritance will be of no benefit to you; nor will your family and friends be of help to you. All these belongs to this world alone. Nothing but your faith can go beyond the grave. Therefore, it is not wise to forsake eternal life and spiritual happiness for the sake if this transitory life." Then I bowed my knees before God and offered this prayer: "O omnipotent, eternal God, Searcher of hearts, I yield myself to Thee. Accept this offering and protect me from all the snares of the devil and from spiritual dangers. Grant me courage and strength that I may be able to confess Thine only Son Jesus Christ publicly before all men. Hear and accept my prayer for the sake of Jesus Christ. Amen."
