We all know that ISIS is very much front page news, and that many people are on edge about radical Islam. While the military are destroying ISIS targets by force, I think we need to learn about and pray for an increase of God's activity in converting many in the Muslim world. In fact, there are reports that this is going on! There is a book out called A WIND IN THE HOUSE OF ISLAM: HOW GOD IS DRAWING MUSLIMS ALL OVER THE WORLD TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST. Another is WHICH NO DOOR CAN SHUT by a woman who testifies about God's work in her Middle Eastern community. There are other books.

There is an out-of-print devotional that I'm looking for. It is called DAY BY DAY WITH THE PERSECUTED CHURCH by Jan Pit.

Thank you & God's blessings to all!

There are two books that I've read lately that I found to be really good.  The first is the story of a wealthy woman in Pakistan that began to have dreams that sent her on a search for the true God and how she was shunned by her family.  The second is about a Muslim young man living in America and his search for the truth about his religion.  The second book is really good as the author really describes being brought up in a devout Muslim household, explains what they believe, and how he is converted.  The book is more than 300 pages and has footnotes and notes to explain the meanings of terms.

I Dared to Call Him Father:  The True Story of a Muslim Woman's Encounter with God by Bilquis Sheikh 

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus:  A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity by Nabeel Qureshi

I'm sorry I do not have copies of these books to trade.  The first I passed on to someone else and I got the second as an e-book.  But I do re commend both of them for anyone wanting to know more about their faith.
