A native of Kuwait, Sam Shamoun moved to the United States with his family at an early age. As an adolescent, Shamoun’s Christian faith often came under fire from those who maintained Islam as the “one true religion.” After a thorough and critical examination of the Scriptures, he was reaffirmed in his faith and began to share the Gospel and answer skeptics’ questions, especially Muslim objections. Today, Shamoun is a frequent contributor to a prominent Web site dedicated to challenging the teachings of Islam. Additionally, he engages in debates as an informed apologist refuting accusations and attacks leveled by proponents of Islam against Christianity.
