I went on holiday in Turkey and visited a great mosque. With every step I took, the more I felt the presence of God with me. It was such a great feeling…like home. I felt calm and peaceful. A Muslim taught me more about Islam and I felt confused and prayed...

“Why did I expect anything less,” Fuller’s former youth pastor wrote. “I am an infidel according to your cult so therefore I am your enemy. Such a shame you have chosen to turn your back on a loving God and serve a false prophet who preaches hate for anyone not of said cult.”...
Words do not adequately describe the extraordinary effect that this book had on me. Suffice to say that the very same magnetism that had drawn me to the Gospels at the age of 11 was present in a new and deeply imperative form. This book was telling me, just as I could tell Jesus had been telling me...
I heard about Islam when I was in secondary school in the history lessons, because Hungary was under occupation by Turkey for 150 years... I was always curious why Muslims are so proud that they are Muslims.
The more I pray the more I turn to the Lord, the more I just try to understand how beneficial the religion is. In the Quran, for example, for every struggle you’re going through, there is something in there that relates to it, if you open your heart to relate to it.
Islamist. Jihadist. ISIS. Terrorist. Women banned from driving in Saudi Arabia. Burqa. 9/11... For a word that means 'peaceful submission to God', Islam is a religion that is connected to some pretty negative connotations and often seen in the media for all the wrong reasons.
My previous experience with Muslims took me to a different direction. I started wondering ‘Why Islam? Why do we blame Islam as a religion for the action of terrorists who happened to be Muslims, when no-one accused Christianity of terrorism when some Christians have acted the same way?
I knew in my heart that it was right, I couldn’t deny. I knew that it is the truth. Whatever way I tried to find something wrong with it but didn’t find any… there is nothing wrong with religion… I was just scared, I just make excuses… and I guess that happened as result of me to delaying.
I have had people come to me saying “I want to convert to Islam but I’m more shocked, I’m surprised that I have come this distance because it is not a faith that I would ever wish to look into.” But somehow because they have read into Islam in order to try to understand what goes on in the mind of Muslims.
I was one of the biggest Islamophobes on the planet. Why? Well, I was born and raised in America. When 9/11 happened, I was 23.... and I had never heard of Islam or even the word Muslim. I was terrified of what happened, and became a Christian because of it... the very next Sunday.
Miller’s writings were fair and his study and comments were positive. He considered the noble Quran, as it should be and reached the conclusion that it cannot be a work of a human being. The first surprising issue for professor Miller was the challenging tone in many verses...
I studied Quran, hadith and Islamic history. I also studied the ways I could use this information. I learned how to twist the words to say what I wanted them to say. It was a valuable tool. Once I started learning, however, I began to be intrigued by this message. It made sense...
