Daniel Shayesteh was born in Iran near the Caspian Sea. By age nine he was able to recite the entire Quran in Arabic. As a young man he was totally committed to Islam and was a member of Hezbollah in Iran. He inspired other good Muslims to hate and kill Americans and Jews. After he helped to oust the Shah of Iran and bring Ayatollah Khomeini to power, he was kidnapped and sentenced to death; the Ayatollah didn’t like Daniel’s opposition to his political agenda. He existed for a time in torturous prison conditions. His cellmates were executed, but by the grace of God Daniel escaped to Turkey. It was there that he met a group of Iranian Christians. And it was through their witness of the love of Christ and training in the truth of the Bible, beginning in Genesis, that he came to know Christ as Savior.
Though hated by radical Muslims, Dr. Shayesteh travels wherever possible to provide insight into the teachings of the Quran regarding salvation, Adam & Eve, and Christians. He helps Christians understand how to effectively evangelize those still trapped in the traditions and deceptions of Islam. Speaking as one who formerly trained Muslims in the strategies of Islamic Jihad, Shayesteh also addresses the alarming social implications of the growth of Islam in western nations today.

this was at times very moving. also, very intresting look into the muslim life. makes you thank the Lord for all He has given us in the west. it also gives you a real look, not a p/c look in the muslim faith. frank and sometimes a little shocking. starts off kind of slow, but pay attention.

I agree with another review... this starts off a little slow, but if you hang on it gets better. It gives you a true perspective of the Islam faith and what they think about Christians and Jews. It is a little scary to think we are hated so much. This story also moved me because this man went from an extreme radical to a Christian and God worked on his family as well. Miracles happen today! Praise the Lord!

An awesome testimony of the power of God's love to break through the deepest darkness.

This is one very fantastic DVD. I recommend it to teens and adults. While it starts out a bit slow in the very beginning, it's only because he is giving needed background material on himself. Like a taxying 747 it picks up speed and takes off and you can't pull away from it. Not only is the information very important to know and inspiring but the man is obviously filled with the Spirit of God. The church in the west needs to see what it means to be filled with the Spirit without making it a doctrinal issue or even speaking much about it. This man demonstrates it by his deep joy and loving yet firm conviction.
