Read My Name Used to Be Muhammad: The True Story of a Muslim Who Became a Christian Online Free - Tito Momen was raised Muhammad Momen. He was born in Nigeria and was taught to observe the strict teachings of Islam. At age five he woke at 4:45 every morning to attend the mosque and perform dawn prayer with the other men in his village. His training to memorize the Qur'an began at age five. It was at this same age that he began copying the entire Qur'an word for word. He was being raised to emerge as a leader among clerics, capable of leading a jihad, or holy struggle, to convert nonbelievers to Islam. However, Tito's path took an expected turn when he was introduced to Christianity. His decision to believe in Jesus Christ cost him his family and his freedom. Tito thought he would spend his remaining days enduring a life sentence in an uncivilized Egyptian prison. For fifteen years he suffered and waited and prayed. Tito said, "I never gave up hope. I never stopped believing." Although he was falsely imprisoned, beaten, and ridiculed, Tito's remarkable true story is one of faith, forgiveness, and testimony that God does hear and answer prayers.

I think if I had rated this book immediately after we read it, I would have given it 4 stars, but my opinion has changed a bit after some reflection. Burke gave me this book for Christmas and we read it together this past month in less than a week as we were so fascinated by the story. While Tito...

This is a frank and honest description of a very intriguing yet incredibly difficult paradigm shift; Islam to Christianity. Momen had an interesting and unique upbringing in Nigeria which is an integral part of his story. He was raised to be far more observant than the rest of Muslims his age, no...

I may be more inclined to give this book a 4 or 4.5, but marked it 5, because I really want people to read it when it comes out (I read an Advanced Readers Edition). The only reason for lower marks is because it is a biography, so by nature, there are parts that move slower. (Not slow, just slowe...

"The next time I see him will be on the other side. I do believe he'll be there. At that point he won't be a Muslim and I won't be a Christian. We will simply be children of God." -Tito Momen

I read large excerpts of this book in an "LDS Living" magazine with my wife. Sorry for the length of this review, but what an incredible story!
This man was raised in Nigeria to become a militant Islamic cleric and a leader of Jihad. His father sent him to a radical Sunni school in Syria and when...

This book gave an in-depth look into the Islamic religion which I admit I didn't really know much about. I bought the book thinking it would tell of his conversion to Christianity in general but I was surprised to learn that he actually converted to the Mormon church. He goes through his thought...

Tito Momen’s Story is one of confusion, searching, falling, and finding. It is an amazing telling of a humble man who could not fake what he believed, even when it was ingrained in him from every angle. I was absolutely enthralled and amazed to see how each event in Tito’s life prepared him for t...

Really amazing story and definitely made me think about how blessed I am. So many times people have to go through insanely tough times after changing their life around. I think that's what makes me people afraid to change even when they know they should. This was a really inspiring story.

I would love to meet this man. What an incredible story! My heart ached for him as a young boy living in an extreme fundamentalist Islamic city with a father who did not allow him many childhood freedoms. His life was spent studying and writing passages from the Quran and sitting at the feet of t...

I felt he entire book was long-winded with exhausting detail about every aspect of his life until he's released from prison. Then it ends. Just like that. What happened after he was released? What did he do for a living? Did he marry? Have a family? Ever see his cousins again? I would like to kno...
