books I won't have time to read (1)

Unfortunately there are not enough hours in the day for this inspiring book. The video clip is powerful, though, and a reminder of the sovereign grace of God to save even when his servants do something foolish (Rassamni's wife married him when he was not a believer). How violence and hatred simply will not solve the problems of the world.

Jerry Rassamni, From Jihad to Jesus.

It reminded me of what John Piper (the link is to wikipedia as I can't get the Desiring God website to work) said soon after 9/11, like Islam the gospel does advance by death and killing and bloodshed - the blood of Christians, the deaths of Christians, the killing of Christians.
