Publisher's Summary

Religion has left an undeniable mark in our world. Some see it as the answer to every problem, while others see it as the problem itself. Simply put, religion is the single greatest force in history. But in a much more intimate sense, what does religion mean to one life?

In this honest, suspenseful, and moving memoir, author David Nasser tells of a life filled with heartbreak and healing. Forced to escape from a country gripped in a religious revolution, David and his family run for their lives in an attempt to find refuge. Through the lens of a terrified boy, we see the destructive power of religion and the pull of peer pressure as he tries to fit into a new culture.

Nasser's raw and transparent account of his transition from hating religion to having a living faith in Christ will impact readers from across the religious spectrum. His unflinchingly honest, yet humorous, assessment of the church from an outsider's point of view will both enlighten readers and spur them to renewed and refined outreach. For anyone who has seen the lie of religion, whether in Iran or Alabama or anywhere in between, Nasser offers the truth of Jesus.

Wonderful Book

David Nasser is by far one of the greatest Christian Speakers of our day! His love for the Lord, humility, honesty and humor are evident in all he does!

The only thing that would have made this book better is if he had read it himself.

Great story. Good performance. Wonderful testimony

"Argo" like escape with suspense filled, true story grit and a little humor. I found this to be a great story, good performance by the narrator, and an even better testimony.

Great story telling

David and his family escaped from Iran during the 1979 revolution. David's father was a Colonel in the Iranian Air Force and was in danger of being killed under the new regime. They eventually made their way to the United States and David eventually became a Christian. This is the story of how that happened and how he has gone on to become a speaker and writer.

The book is fairly brief (the audio is unabridged and only 4 hours 21 minutes) or 171 pages in hardback. But like Just Courage by Gary Haugen, it is well worth the short read (or listen). This time it is more for the stories than the great insights. It is not that his insights are bad, but that his stories are really good.
