About the Book

Traveling here makes one feel like a modern-day Apostle Paul, like being in another “holy land,” like being in the Bible, and like a life-changing experience has just happened for so many who have no access to the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is an adventure of learning, loving, sharing, tasting, seeing, and encountering the living Lord.

This region is the cradle of ancient civilization and history where Western thought, philosophy, art, and sculpture originated. This is the place where Apostle Paul was born and traveled during his journey in the Book of Acts; where the Apostles John, Luke, and Phillip are buried; where Noah landed and the animals were dispersed; where Abraham lived and roamed; where the early church councils were held; where the seven churches of Revelation are found; where some of the New Testament was written; where Galatia, Colossae, Ephesus, and the area mentioned in Philemon are located; and where the earliest Christians were scattered in Cappadocia, Bithynia, Pontus, Galatia, and Mysia. This country is beautiful with sweet people who are unaware of the good news of Jesus Christ.

We encounter people at markets, ancient sites, homes, gardens, workplaces, and resorts with the continual response, “I have no idea why Jesus had to die.” For most, it is a matter of explaining rather than defending why Jesus had to die on the cross. It is also a matter of convincing people with the heart and not so much with the mind or argumentation. In other words, trying to “outlove” these people, if you can, is no small challenge. I invite you to come along with me as I have lived and traveled through this region for the last twenty years, sharing the good news.

About the Author

Davut, a native of the southwestern US, was a carpenter when he accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. He was immediately called to missions and earned bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees in Biblical studies. Gifted by God with the ability to learn languages, he was hired by an English-speaking religious organization and spent several years in other areas before being posted to the Middle East.

A chance encounter with taxi drivers in a major city, who wanted to learn better English, allowed him to teach them and learn their language. They called him Davut Abi (Brother David). After a couple of years, he left his job to begin his own ministry. Being recognized as an authority on ancient and religious history, he conducts tours throughout the country, going where the Apostle Paul went, and doing what he did.
