AN INTERVIEW WITH MOH-CHRISTOPH BILEK: ALGERIAN, BERBER, EX-MUSLIM AND CATHOLIC
AbstractDM: Most people who leave Islam for Christianity become evangelicals of some sort, yet you are Catholic. What would you say to the person thinking about converting to Christianity regarding the Catholic Church?MCB : To answer this question I will go back quickly to my conversion: when I heard on the radio, in the 60s, of Jesus Christ and the Gospel, I was studying a catechism by mail with the Protestants of Switzerland, I was visiting the beautiful churches of the Middle Ages in Paris. For me, all this was one: there were only Christians, the disciples of Jesus Christ. In brief: like most of the Muslims who convert, I was fascinated by Jesus Christ. It is only after I discovered the division between Christians and that I entered into the Catholic Church, because of saints like Francis of Asisi or Theresa.
