The Witness by Josh McDowell


Author Josh McDowell’s latest book The Witness is definitely not a light read.   With a storyline that involves murder, suspense and a man on the run for his life – you’ll be on the edge of your seat reading this book.  Be prepared – there’s a lot of action in this book and sometimes it gets a bit graphic.   There's so much suspense and action that at times, I felt myself getting nervous trying to keep up.

If you’re not planning to be up all night, don’t start this book at bedtime!

The storyline is written about a main character who is not a Christian, so his actions aren’t going to be those of integrity for most of this book.  This is a man who is running for his life from the police as well as the assassins who are after him and has to live by a barbaric, survival mentality.  

In the midst of all the chaos – Marwan finds himself falling in love which complicates his life even more.  The ending is a bit abrupt and made me wonder if there will be a follow up to this book?  If so, I’m sure readers of The Witness will be delighted if a second book is written about Marwan and his life with Dalia.

As a young man, Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling, overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. After trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, Josh’s life changed dramatically as he experienced the power of God’s love.

After his conversion, his plans for law school turned instead to plans to tell a doubting world about the truth of Jesus Christ. After studying at Kellogg College, Josh completed his college degree at Wheaton College and then attended Talbot Theological Seminary, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Master of Divinity degree.

In 1961 Josh joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ International. Not long after, he started the Josh McDowell Ministry to reach young people worldwide with the truth and love of Jesus.  Well known as an articulate speaker, Josh has addressed more than 10 million young people, giving over 24,000 talks in 118 countries.
