Born into a prominent Shia Muslim family in Pakistan, Ali had it all prestige, security, wealth, social status. "The Cost" is the extraordinary story of his dramatic encounter with Jesus that would change everything.

That life-altering choice to follow Jesus would turn Ali from a typical teenager into a target of a terrorist organization based in his hometown a target they would soon act on.

"The Cost" is the riveting and remarkable journey of a young man who left everything behind to follow the one thing he knew to be true.

This modern epic is a must-read for anyone who wants to be informed about the state of Christian-Muslim relations today, and inspired by just how much a single light in the darkness can make a difference.
