Before 2005, I hated Muslims, but God brought a little Muslim boy into my life named Omar that completely changed my life and the way I saw Muslims.
I no longer see them as enemies but as dear friends, brothers and sisters who desire peace and want to make the world a better place. People often ask me what happened to my life after Omar? What changes did and I make and how have those changes impacted my world? I attempt to answer some of those questions in practical ways in my book. I want to show you how chose to live out my life and faith after my encounter with Omar.
In celebration of my 205,000 views on YouTube, I decided to write a short ebook called The PEACE PATH: A Practical Manual For Reconciliation Between Muslims, Christians and ALL People of Peace. I am giving this book away as a FREE download to all who are interested. This short book captures my best tools and practices that I have used and developed as a peacemaker for the past ten years. They have been field tested and proven by many people over the years (both Muslims and Christians) and around the world, so I know they work; if in our hearts we sincerely desire peace on earth and goodwill toward all people.
I hope you enjoy my book. I will be writing an expanded version of my FREE book to sell that will be loaded with stories and practical content. The expanded version will come out by the end of the summer of 2018.Thank you for your support and click the link below to get your copy of my FREE ebook. May this simple book inspire and guide you to help make a better world. Jeff
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 popular 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 10 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 www.jeffburns.org you can hear his most popular 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 in September of 2017 and it went from 1,000 views to 105,000 views by March of 2018. The story has gone viral! Here is the link if you prefer to watch it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9JK3DnT97E

As a charismatic pastor, Jeff's world got rocked and he became a peacemaker and friend to Muslims when he discovered the core message of Jesus by loving his neighbor and treating other people the way he wanted to be treated. Jeff's desire is that his stories will give hope to a lot of people.
