Police disrupted a plot to assassinate Pastor Emre Karaali, but they weren’t able to stop the murder of Turkish Believer Necati Aydin. On 18 April 2007, Necati and two other Christians were brutally murdered by five young men seeking to rid the country of Christians. In this personal account of his brother-in-law’s sacrifice, Wolfgang Haede, who worked in Turkey for many years, explores the question of what is worth living and dying for. In the process, he also examines the deep historical roots of Christianity in Turkey, a nation that is culturally Muslim but officially secular.
