About the Author

Dr. Jeff Burns, a recovering evangelical/charismatic Christian and former minister shares about his peacemaking journey with Muslims in the U.S. and abroad in a series of favorite stories that he has shared around the world in churches, mosques, and synagogues.

Jeff has been a peacemaker between the Muslim and Christian community since 2005. Over the past 13 years, he presented a series of peacemaking stories called "Redeemed: How My Momma, My Wife & A Little Muslim Boy Saved Me From Racism." The focus of these stories was how Jeff went from being a rabid Christian Zionist who hated Muslims to become a peacemaker and how he confronted racism in Southern fundamentalist Christian churches.

After encouragement from many Muslims and Christian who have encountered Jeff and heard his stories, he has decided to write a series of books on his life as a peacemaker. These books will cover the good, the bad, and the ugly of his journey as a peacemaker in the way of Jesus.

If you go to Jeff's website you can hear his most famous story called "How A Muslim Child Saved An Evangelical Minister From A Life of Hatred." It is the second video recording on his website. He reposted this story on his YouTube Channel called I Follow The Path in September 2017, and it went from 1,000 views to 147,000 views by July 2018. The story has gone viral!

Also, if you go to Jeff's speaker section on his blog, you see several talks he has given:

As a charismatic pastor, Jeff's world got rocked, and he became a peacemaker and friend to Muslims when he rediscovered the core message of Jesus by loving his neighbor and treating other people the way he wanted to be treated and the importance of making peace with all people; even one's perceived, enemies. Jeff desires that his stories will give hope to a lot of people.
