Once an Arafat Man is the tale of Tass Saada’s journey from being a PLO sniper to becoming a Christian. The story is very gripping as it looks into the drastic change of heart that takes place in man after conversion to Christianity. The book is separated into three sections, with the first looking at his early life before Christianity. It is a very informative look at the hatred for Israel and the West. Saada also recounts some of his deeds as he and the Fatah looked to kill those who occupied their homeland. He leaves out many of the gory details, but reveals enough to give a sense of the violence that was occurring. The second section of the book looks at the events that led to his conversion to Christianity, as well as the changes in his life following. It is an amazing look at the work a man can do in the heart of a man. It is very much a modern day Saul to Paul conversion. Saada has maintained his love for his fellow Arabs, while gaining a new love for the Christians and Jews he used to hate. The third section looks at his suggestions for reconciliation in the Middle East. While I don’t agree with all his suggestions, there is no denying his passion for Christ and his love for those in the Middle East. Definitely a book worth reading.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
