During his military service, Muhammad, a young Muslim Iraqi from a leading Shiite family, discovers to his dismay that his roommate is a Christian. Muhammad tries to convert his roommate, but he is the one who is converted.
In Islam changing one's religion is a crime, and Muhammad's family does everything possible to make him renounce his new faith in Christ. After threats and blows come prison and torture. Muhammad, who has become Joseph by his baptism, experiences a long Calvary but does not give in. Finally, he is taken from prison by relatives who threaten to kill him if he does not resubmit to Islam. They shoot him and leave him for dead.
The Price to Pay is the true story of Joseph Fadelle's conversion to Christianity. He risks everything-family, friends, his inheritance and home, and even his life-in order to follow Christ. In a dramatic and personal narrative style, Fadelle reveals the horrible persecution endured by Christians living in a violent and hostile Muslim world.
Joseph Fadelle (Muslim name: Mohammed al-Sayyid al-Moussaou) was born in Iraq in an affluent Shiite family. After he converted to Christianity he was imprisoned and tortured in Iraqi jails. He escaped to Jordan with his family, where his uncle and brothers tried to assassinate him because of his conversion. He now lives in France with his wife and four children, and has become a best-selling author.

eloquent, riveting, and eye-opening account of one man's struggle to follow
Christ in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Joseph Fadelle's intensely
personal story contains powerful lessons about the growing threat to Christians
from an increasingly aggressive Islam. His compelling narrative provides indispensable
insight into the world behind a wall of coercion and oppression no less imprisoning
than that erected by communists in the Cold War. The Price to Pay is at once
captivating and illuminating."

Fadelle's autobiography is a spiritual meditation wrapped in a captivating thriller.
For those of us who think of condescending tones and social rejection as religious
persecution, Fadelle has given us a glimpse of what it truly means to abandon
everything for the gospel. With its contrast between harsh religious bondage
and "inebriating" freedom in Christ, The Price to Pay will transform
your view of the Christian life."

increasingly report of violence against Christians in villages and churches
in the Middle East and around the world, and persecution of converts who refuse
to recant even under threat of death. But seeing the face and hearing the voice
of one steadfast convert humanizes the story and gives dignity to believers
who are denied their humanity. Joseph Fadelle is that voice and his story is
compelling. Christians have been asked throughout history and anew in our time
‘What price would you pay for your beliefs?' Fadelle's response is a stunning
witness to the radical face and love of Christ."
