Anis Shorrosh is a Palestinian Evangelical Christian, who has published many books and has debated with the late Ahmad Deedat. Shorrosh is the translator of The True Furqan, which he says is intended to challenge the Quran. Shorrosh translated the book to English from Arabic.

Shorrosh served as pastor and evangelist in the Middle East from 1959-1966.

Born in Nazareth, he became a refugee in Jordan during the Arab-Israeli War, and later came to the United States with the help of missionaries. He received two degrees from Baptist seminaries, including a doctorate.[1]

In September 1995, Shorrosh was guest lecturer at NCI Bible College, Auckland, New Zealand. In the years 2004-2005, he held a tour around the world, giving lectures and holding debates.

In 2008, he was arrested in Daphne, Alabama, and charged with first degree attempted arson for allegedly burning tax records of his religious organization in an attempt to set his building on fire.[2][3]
