During his military service, Muhammad, a young Muslim Iraqi from a leading Shiite family, discovers to his dismay that his roommate is a Christian. Muhammad tries to convert his roommate, but he is the one who is converted.
In Islam changing one's religion is a crime, and Muhammad's family does everything possible to make him renounce his new faith in Christ. After threats and blows come prison and torture. Muhammad, who has become Joseph by his baptism, experiences a long Calvary but does not give in. Finally, he is taken from prison by relatives who threaten to kill him if he does not resubmit to Islam. They shoot him and leave him for dead.
The Price to Pay is the true story of Joseph Fadelle's conversion to Catholicism. He risks everything-family, friends, his inheritance and home, and even his life-in order to follow Christ. In a dramatic and personal narrative style, Fadelle reveals the horrible persecution endured by Christians living in a violent and hostile Muslim world.

Shows how the human spirit can persevere for faith in the face of unimaginable odds. It is the biography of a man who is imprisoned and then left for dead by his relatives, all because he converted to Christianity in a Muslim world. A must read for anyone seeking to understand the culture of the Middle East.
This is a very compelling story and easy read. It provides new insight into the Muslem culture and beliefs.
A must read. How blessed are the persecuted. How dull in their faith are the free.
