Conversations about Christ... thanks to C.S. Lewis

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

“I had kept my faith secret for years. I come from a Muslim family and I had never found a way of telling my parents that I had converted to Christianity. I was especially concerned about my mother’s reaction, as she is very devout.

“But when my parents came to visit me recently, everything changed. And all because I had been reading 'Mere Christianity' by C.S.Lewis in Persian.  I had spent three weeks pouring over it and digesting Lewis’ wisdom ahead of their visit. Finally I felt I had the tools to come out and express and explain my faith. 'Mere Christianity' created a whirlwind of conversation in my house for days.

“I’m so thankful this book is available in Persian. 'Mere Christianity' was like a protecting treasure for me that week.”

Christian books in the Persian language are a powerful resource for equipping the growing Iranian church, as this lady’s story shows. There are now hundreds of excellent Christian books and resources available from Elam. We would love you to join us in praying that these resources would continue to facilitate amazing testimonies like the one above.

Pray for

  • This believer’s parents
  • Many to be encouraged and equipped by Christian resources in Persian
  • Wisdom as new books are selected for translation

Bibles, Christian books and DVDs in Persian are available to order online
