In this honest, suspenseful, and moving memoir, author David Nasser recalls being forced to escape from his native Iran during the 1979 Revolution. Through the lens of a terrified boy you will witness the destructive power of religion and the pull of peer pressure as he tries to fit into a vastly different culture, the American South. Nasser's raw and transparent account of his transition from hating religion to having a living faith will touch you soul. His unflinchingly honest, yet humorous, assessment of the church from an outsider's point of view is both enlightening and challenging. Jumping Through Fires takes you on a riveting journey from religion and fear to the life-changing discovery of God's grace. (Book Jacket)
