Imagine accepting Jesus' sacrifice only to be told that you must deny Him to save your own life. That's exactly what happened to Michael Paul. Born in Iraq, he came to know Christ. But the moment he was baptized, he was a marked man. Kidnapped and tortured, God spared his life. His story is one you'll want to hear on The Land and the Book. Don't miss…The Land and the Book.
Born as a Muslim in Iraq, Michael Paul set out to prove himself worthy of his religion, only to find emptiness. After receiving Christ, he was kidnapped, stabbed and fled Iraq. Today he ministers to Muslims here and abroad.
