Alone With A Jihadist


If I were to write just one word about this book by Aaron D. Taylor, it would be 'brave'. Alone With a Jihadist takes a lot of assumed knowledge and turns it on its head.

After spending one day, alone in a room, with a Jihadist, Aaron's world is turned upside down. He goes in attempting to defend his worldview without starting a holy war, but comes away with more questions than answers.

Readers of his book will come away with both questions and answers. I must admit the biggest question addressed concerns how followers of Christ live out their dual citizenship. There is a Heavenly Kingdom and a nation here on Earth. And Aaron writes directly to American Christians, who likely rank high in those who confuse which citizenship card trumps the other one.

Expect a good discussion on various topics, as Aaron shifts seamlessly from Biblical teaching to current events. Check out the many links below. I was given this book for free from my friends at SpeakEasy. They ask that I talk about the book, but don't tell me what to say.
