by Benjamin Hall
What can I even say? Benjamin is a reporter that has been in the trenches and literally seen the things that ISIS is doing. What he is thinking by going over there, I have no idea!!!! But I will say, this is one of the hardest books I’ve ever had to read.
My heart breaks. Not just because of the mass killings, thousands upon thousands of children warriors that are completely brainwashed and the same amount of women/children that are sex slaves. No. My heart breaks because their hearts are so empty that they don’t know what to do but try to fill up that void. They think that the more killing and evil that is done, the better chance they have for Heaven; for Allah to allow them a “pass”.
Jesus. Jesus is the answer. Jesus is the one that fills that void of hurt and torture your lives have been. Christians do NOT worship three Gods. We worship One. Just One. Ask Allah who he really is. Ask Him to show you if He is real. Mean it. Ask Him and really mean it. He will show Himself to you. You don’t need this horrendous path.
Throughout the book, Benjamin is, rightfully, calling for us to do more to stop ISIS and it’s rapid growth. Us, Americans, we don’t even know the half of what’s going on over there. It blew my mind. But again, there is nothing that can stop them except Jesus. They are seeking to find a way to fill that emptiness and pain by turning frantic and brutal. Pray. Pray, my friends! This is much more serious than you even realize!
I appreciate, so much, what Benjamin has done to open my eyes and the eyes of many. I certainly don’t recommend he continues to go, but I appreciate what he’s doing with this book. It is eye opening, thoroughly written. You will know the players in the game. You will know where they came from and how it is escalating. If you want knowledge of what ISIS truly is, pick up a copy of this book.
Thank you, netgalley, for this book. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more (hopefully lighthearted!!! for a while anyway) more!
