Alert: My Testimony Is not for Sale

The story of God’s work of grace in my life is not for sale. Jesus Christ paid it all. I did not do anything to earn my salvation. I have been sharing this testimony free of charge for more than two decades. Listen to it here. Read it here. Read more about it here.

Many asked me to put the story in writing. Now my autobiography, Cracks in the Crescent, is in print. You can get your copy here.

Surprisingly, some reputable online retailers tout it as hard-to-find, rare and out-of-print book. They use these labels to justify their outrageous pricing even for used copies. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw some of their prices, especially one of them, which is a whooping US $346.13—22 times more than the cover price. Is this still capitalism or a rip off? Why would they mislead people when even their tag “Usually ships in 3 weeks” shows these retailers must be buying directly from me? Here are some examples:

On Books A Million a new copy sells for between US $193.32 and 346.13.

On Alibris a new copy sells for between US $115.44 and 230.24.

Here are a few things to note. First, Cracks is not a P.O.D. (Print or Publish On Demand) book. There are thousands of copies in print. If you would like a copy, you can order it from Amazon.com, Google, my website or visit these bookstores. Secondly, if you are just interested in the first few chapters, you can read it (my upbringing, conversion and persecution) for free on Google Books here. Thirdly, if you would like to get a copy, it retails for US $15.99 and there is an offer for free shipping.

To minimize any distortion of the testimony—some unhappy Muslims have made attempts to distort testimonies of ex-Muslims including mine—I have come up with some guidelines you can read here. Please feel free to print my posts in any non-commercial publication provided you include this copyright notice: “© 2010, Hussein Hajji Wario. All rights reserved. Originally published at http://www.cracksinthecrescent.com.” You can also duplicate audio of my testimony for your own use or for your organization as long as you are not charging for it.

I hope these guidelines are clear. Please feel free to contact me with further questions. Have a blessed day!
