I Put My Sword Away

by Yacoub Yousif

From a Muslim in the Iraqi army... to a conscientious objector in a Bruderhof, the fascinating life story of Yacoub Yousif.


In this true story of finding faith in the midst of destruction, Yacoub Yousif describes the hell he endured in the Iraqi army during the Iran-Iraq War, and his agony of soul when forced to decide between killing or being killed. Refusing to fight in Saddam Hussein's Iraq meant summary execution, but as he trusted in God's faithfulness, Yacoub was able to find the courage to make life-changing decisions that led him on a journey toward peace, reconciliation, and brotherhood. This candid memoir of a soldier who became a conscientious objector and peacemaker will be of particular interest to any young person considering military service.
