New Wave of Islamic Converts to Christianity (Video Added)

Here is an amazing story of a coptic priest, Father Zakaria Botros, who is bringing Muslims into the Christian faith by droves using the Quran in arabic and other primary sources for Muslims. He brings up some touchy points of Islamic law about which most of us in the West know nothing:

A third reason for Botros’s success is that his polemical technique has proven irrefutable. Each of his episodes has a theme — from the pressing to the esoteric — often expressed as a question (e.g., “Is jihad an obligation for all Muslims?”; “Are women inferior to men in Islam?”; “Did Mohammed say that adulterous female monkeys should be stoned?” “Is drinking the urine of prophets salutary according to sharia?”). To answer the question, Botros meticulously quotes — always careful to give sources and reference numbers — from authoritative Islamic texts on the subject, starting from the Koran; then from the canonical sayings of the prophet — the Hadith; and finally from the words of prominent Muslim theologians past and present — the illustrious ulema.

Needless to say, Father Botros has a big price on his head. God bless him for his courage.

  1. How does he manage to stay alive?! May Our Lord and Our Lady protect him for many, many more years of conversions!

  2. Asimplesinner,

    I was thinking the same thing! However, this is a very brave man and I hope that his Church, as well as all of the Christian denominations out there (RC, for one!) are helping to protect this man. Are any of the Roman Catholic militia allowed to protect those of other Christian or Catholic rites? My guess is that he will ultimately be martyred and surely he knows this. What incredible conviction he has and such strength. Praise be Jesus Christ … God always has an amazing plan even when we feel all seems so lost.
