´´Den 18. April 2007 werde ich wohl nie vergessen. Mein Schwager Necati Aydin, der deutsche Christ Tilmann Geske sowie Ugur Yüksel werden in ihrem Büro in der türkischen Stadt Malatya von fünf jungen Männern überfallen, brutal gefoltert und schließlich ermordet. Der ausdrückliche Grund: sie sind Christen, die ihren Glauben in der Türkei offen teilen. Später geben die Täter zu Protokoll, dass sie an diesem Tag auch mich hatten töten wollen ...´´ Wolfgang Häde Wofür lohnt es sich zu leben und zu sterben? Der türkische Christ und Pastor Necati Aydin starb im Alter von knapp 35 Jahren für seinen Glauben an Jesus Christus. Persönlich betroffen und dennoch sachlich, schildert Wolfgang Häde den Lebensweg seines Schwagers. An seiner Geschichte wird beispielhaft der Alltag von Christen und Gemeinden in der Türkei deutlich. Das Gebiet der heutigen Türkei gehört zu den Gegenden, in denen sich das Christentum früh ausbreitete. Heute sind von den über 70 Millionen Einwohnern nur rund 100.000 Christen, unter ihnen vielleicht 3.000 ehemalige Muslime. Die Verfassung garantiert zwar Religionsfreiheit, in der Lebenswirklichkeit begegnen Christen jedoch vielfach Benachteiligungen. In der Gesellschaft gilt: Ein guter Türke ist Muslim.

Farhana Qazi draws on her background as a pioneering counterterrorism professional and a devout Muslim to offer an insider’s view of what drives girls and women to join radical Islamic movements and how we can keep them from making this terrible choice. The first Muslim woman to work for the US government’s Counterterrorism Center, Qazi found herself fascinated, even obsessed, by the phenomena of female extremists. Why, she wondered, would a girl from Denver join ISIS, a radical movement known for its mistreatment of women? Why would a teenage Iraqi girl strap on a suicide bomb and detonate it? From Kashmir to Iraq to Afghanistan, to Colorado to London, she discovered women of different backgrounds who all had their own reason for joining these movements. Some were confused, others taken advantage of, and some were just as radical and dedicated as their male counterparts. But in each case, Qazi found their choices were driven by a complex interaction of culture, context, and capability that was unique to each woman. This audiobook reframes their stories so listeners can see these girls and women as they truly are: females exploited by men. Through hearing their voices and sharing their journeys, Qazi gained powerful insights not only into what motivated these women but also into the most effective ways to combat terrorism - and about herself as well. ´´Through them,” Qazi writes, ´´I discovered intervention strategies that are slowly helping women hold on to faith as they struggle with versions of orthodox Islam polluted by extremist interpretations. And in the process, I discovered a gentle Islam and more about myself as a woman of faith.” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Farhana Qazi.

From the only journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Iraq, here is the riveting account of ordinary people caught between the struggles of nations. Determined to offer an unfiltered version of events, the Washington Post´s Anthony Shadid was neither embedded with soldiers nor briefed by politicians. Because he is fluent in Arabic, Shadid, an Arab-American born and raised in Oklahoma, was able to actually disappear into the divided, dangerous worlds of Iraq. Day by day, as American dreams clashed with Arab notions of justice, he pieced together the human story of ordinary Iraqis weathering the terrible dislocations and tragedies of war. Through the lives of Sunnis and Shiites, men and women, American sympathizers, and outraged young men newly transformed into martyrs, Shadid shows us the journey of defiant, hopeful, resilient Iraq. Moving from battle scenes to subdued streets enlivened only by the call to prayer, Shadid uses the experiences of his characters to illustrate how Saddam´s downfall paved the way not only for democracy but also for an Islamic reawakening and jihad. Night Draws Near, as compelling as it is human, is an illuminating and poignant account from a reporter whose coverage has drawn international attention and acclaim. 1. Language: English.

If you are among those who are curious about the basic teachings of Islam, how God gives faith that overcomes the fear of suffering and death, how to reach out to Muslims, and how a relationship with Jesus Christ brings us to a growing fearless love, then listening to this audiobook by authors David Witt and Mujahid El Masih (narrated by Bill Witt) will raise some important questions in your mind as well as provide significant answers. Does the violence in our world and within Islam among fundamentalist Muslims disturb you? Are you perplexed that the adherents of a religion claiming to be peaceful can act so destructively and claim to do so in the name of Allah? Are you angered about the terrorism and suicide bombs by the so-called martyrs? Are you aware that martyr is an important ideal in both Islam and Christianity but that the meanings of the word in both religions are diametrically opposed? One of the authors´ purposes is to contrast the martyrdoms of the two faiths and to invite Muslims to seriously consider which act of martyrdom offers the greatest hope for peace to them and all the people of the world: the one that is acted out with hatred toward one´s enemies or the one that demonstrates love toward one´s enemies by dying in the pursuit of bringing them love. For Christians, it is the authors´ hope that they will gain a greater understanding of the dark hopelessness of Islamic martyrdom in contrast with the bright hope they have to share by living with a spirit of Christlike martyrdom - fearless love About the authors and narrator: Dr. Mujahid El Masih lived in Pakistan until 1997. While growing up he studied Islam for more than 14 years in Pakistani schools and universities. He trained as an officer in the military. Through Qur´anic teachings, he was taught to hate Israel, Christians, and all non-Muslims. He was very passionate about being a martyr for his country and religion until he came to know that Jesus is the w 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Witt.
