For most of his life, Abdu Murray was a proud Muslim who studied the Qur’an and Islam and defended his faith openly among Christians. Through a nine-year investigation of major world religions and viewpoints, Abdu discovered that only the historic Christian faith can answer the questions of the mind and the longings of the heart.

What followed was a changed life and a dogged commitment to spreading the truth of the Christian Gospel.
