Abdu Murray | En Route to Truth

Good News Stories

Peace, love, soul, and good news! Abdu Murray is a Christian Apologist, author of Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World, and president of Embrace the Truth; a ministry dedicated to offering the truth of the Christian gospel to Muslims. Being a former skeptic and critic of Christianity, it could be said that his journey of coming face-to-face with truth is faithful evidence of God's passionate and very patient mercy. For most of his life, Abdu was a proud Muslim, who studied the Qur’an as a follower of Islam. After a nine-year investigation into the historical, philosophical, and scientific underpinnings of the major world religions and views, however, the Holy Spirit convicted him that Christian faith answers questions of the mind as well as the longings of the heart.

Janet Mefferd Today

Is it possible for anyone to leave homosexuality behind and find freedom in Jesus Christ? It is indeed, but we don't often hear from the real people who experienced the lifestyle firsthand and left it behind to follow the Lord. George Carneal was enmeshed in homosexuality for 25 years and will join me to tell his story of Christian transformation as we discuss his book, "From Queer to Christ: My Journey Into the Light." Plus: How do proclaim Jesus in a culture of confusion? I'll talk about it with Abdu Murray, North America director of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries and author of "Saving Truth: Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World." That's next time on Monday's JANET MEFFERD TODAY.
