I’ve been reading A Company of Heroes by Tim Keesee this last week. What a book! I can’t say I fully recommend it yet, but I have really appreciated the first three chapters, anyway. So many good quotes and things to chew over, and so much truth! Here are three of the quotes that I have found particularly inspiring, all from chapter one.
(This book was released mid last month, I believe, by Crossway. They graciously gave me a review copy, so I’m looking forward to reviewing it here sometime in the next few weeks—watch for that! Get your own copy here. #AffiliateLink)
“He who religiously obeys Mahomet [Mohammed] may yet be doing grievous moral wrong; but it is never so with the disciple of Jesus: obedience to Jesus is holiness.” —Charles Spurgeon
“They have a verse of this song [‘I Have Decided to Follow Jesus’] in Arabic that we don’t have back home: ‘If I’m put in chains, or go to prison, no turning back, no turning back.” —Tim Keesee
“Islam is, in his words, ‘just another façade for lost people who are trying to save themselves.’ ” —Aaron
