MY THOUGHTS:
This is an incredible book. It will refresh your faith, encourage you, amaze you, inspire you, instruct you, and convict you. Most of all, it will cause you to realize anew that God is at work and transforming the hearts and lives of a people whom many of us as Christians often have viewed as unreachable. Testimonies of former Muslims fill the pages as they tell of the spiritual emptiness and dissatisfaction that simmer beneath the surface of so many within the Muslim community, revealing their experiences, many of them miraculous and supernatural, of coming to Christ. More than just a collection of anecdotes, however, this book provides practical guidelines for effective evangelism and discipleship following the model set forth by Jesus as He invested in the disciples. I highly recommend it!

VERY interesting! I taught at a private Muslim school last year. To say I faced challenges because I was open about my faith is an understatement. I will never forget the people I worked with and the students I taught. Though I changed to a public school this year, I'll never stop praying for them.
