Born into a strict Christian household in Kenya, Yahya Ondigo was always a man of faith. He went on to join the military, and it was during this time that he was given his first exposure to the Muslim way of life. When his questions about the Christian faith were left inadequately answered, and with the help of his elder brother who had recently converted to Islam, Ondigo’s search for the truth led him towards Islam.
My Journey from Christianity to Islam is an autobiographical work, charting this faith journey with some reflections that Ondigo made along the way concerning both religions. He discusses discrepancies in the Christian faith, particularly those with regards to the position of Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). He also touches on some of the uplifting discoveries he made about the Islamic faith and how it calls Muslims to live their daily lives.
This story follows the increasing trend in modern times of people coming to Islam and also provides insight for those interested in comparative religion.
