Love Casts Out Fear: A Jihad Survivor's Journey From Revenge to Redemption by Brother Nathan with David Culross

Goodreads | Amazon
A true story of forgiveness and God's incredible provision.

As a boy in Egypt, Brother Nathan witnessed an unthinkable attack on his father, a Christian pastor in a majority-Muslim country. After the attack Nathan sought revenge and vowed to avenge his father. As a man, by God's incredible provision, Nathan ministers in the village where his father was targeted, as well as in countless other cities and villages across Egypt and throughout the Middle East.

Love Casts Out Fear tells a gripping true story of danger, overwhelming anger, and forgiveness that's beyond comprehension. Through Nathan's experiences in Egypt, his beloved homeland, you'll see firsthand the joys and difficulties Christians face in the persecuted church in the Middle East. And you'll marvel at God's ability to care for those who follow his call and to change hearts in one of the most dangerous places in the world to claim Christ as Lord.

Love Casts Out Fear: A Jihad Survivor’s Journey From Revenge to Redemption tells Brother Nathan’s incredible story. Though the pain of witnessing his father’s murder initially stirred up his anger, hatred, and desire for revenge, God’s work in his life shows the powerful capability of love and forgiveness. His story is very inspiring, as well as important, and I couldn’t stop reading it - I recommend it.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of Love Casts Out Fear and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
