Dr. Tom White, executive director of the Voice of the Martyrs, calls the book 'a testament to a merciful Redeemer who offers hope to the hopeless in the world of Islam.' You won't forget the stories here in The Costly Call!

The Costly Call is an eye-opening collection of stories of converted Muslims that underlines the sacrifice, the unconditional love, and the burden for others all faithful followers of Christ should exhibit for the Savior.
— Eddie Carsell
Voice of the Martyrs
It is very difficult to write a book educating Christians about the dark side of Islam yet extend the mercy and grace of our forgiving Savior — Jesus Christ in the same volume. The Caner brothers, Emir and Ergun, former Muslims, continue to produce such Christlike, balanced works which are a blessing to all. This latest work by Emir, The Costly Call, is a testament to a merciful Redeemer who offers hope to the hopeless in the world of Islam.

All of the sudden our diplomats and Westerners in general seek to understand Islam. Islamic terrorism calls for all-out war. Muslim evangelism calls for new approaches. The so-called Messianic Muslim movement.calls for Christian acceptance. Meanwhile, Christ calls us and them to take up our cross and follow him. Vividly and forcefully but empathetically, The Costly Call paints real-life word pictures of crosses borne by Muslims who truly follow Christ. Read it and weep! Read it and rejoice! Read it and understand!

This is an eye-opening, moving book about the realities of living for Christ in a Muslim country and a powerful witness to Christ's love and grace.

This is a great book, well-written and warm. I think it would be a good choice to read aloud during family devotions with junior high students and older. Each account covers about six to eight pages. Most of us need to be challenged to love the Lord more and these stories inspire. Whether one uses it for family devotions or reads it privately, it is well worth reading and hard to put down.

"The Costly Call chronicles the amazing, and sometimes painful stories of men and women whose faith is sincere, genuine, and committed. They are heroes of our generation, for our generation."

"They are the untold tales of the heroes of the Christian faith, those rejected, tortured, and killed because of the One they have chosen to follow. These are their true stories. The Costly Call is a testament to a merciful Redeemer who offers hope to the hopeless in the world of Islam."
