A narrative interview story of how a dozen people moved from various forms of spirituality to come to Christ as Lord. Listen in on the interviews of individuals who had been part of Mormonism, Judaism, Hinduism, atheism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Wicca, agnosticism, Buddhism, Islam, Unitarianism, new ageism, and Satanism.
Following Jesus is a journey none of the people in this book ever expected to take. Why did they? What difference did it make? The book youre holding is dangerous. If you read it, youll see that God is still active in saving even the most unexpected people: An atheist woman who viewed Christians as idiots. A married couple high in the leadership ranks of the Mormon church. An African-American man who became a Black Muslim out of hatred for white Christians. Youll be amazed, moved, and encouraged as you read their compelling stories and the stories of nine others who made The Unexpected Journey from non-Christian beliefs to faith in Jesus Christ. Youll rediscover the power of the gospel. You might even be emboldened to tell others about Christ yourself.
