My Name Used to Be Muhammad by Tito Momen

Tito Momen was born in Nigeria to fundamentalist Muslims. His father wanted him to become an imam and sent him to Syria and Egypt to study. He began to have questions about Islam, but was beaten by his instructors when he asked those questions. His questions eventually led him to investigate The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and become a Mormon. Sharia Law does not allow a Muslim to convert to Christianity and so he spent many years in jail for his beliefs. Momen’s story is fascinating and I really like his writing style. I found it hard to put the book down at times. I highly recommend reading it!
