Which None Can Shut Book Review

Book Description:
Imagine a place where becoming a Christian is a punishable crime—and your own family exacts the punishment. Where those who spread the gospel among locals are deported if discovered. Where converts to Christianity face persecution, isolation, or even death as the price for their faith. “Reema Goode” and her family are Christians working in a closed Middle Eastern country where all of these things are true. Yet they are also firsthand witnesses of a whole new trend that is taking shape in missions to Muslims. Despite all obstacles, God is opening miraculous doors in the Islamic world, where an unprecedented number of Muslims are becoming followers of Jesus. In this powerful collection of personal stories, Reema takes us deep inside her Arab neighborhood to show how God is opening doors in just one of many Islamic communities. As she walks us through everyday life in a Muslim town, she reveals the diverse, creative, unexpected, and thrilling ways God is reaching her neighbors with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. “See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it.”—Revelation 3:8

My Opinion:
This book was a quick and easy read. It flowed really well and was easy to follow along. It is amateur writing at best, but I felt like I could hear her voice telling a story as I read along. I am a Christian myself, and having said that, I have two things to say about this book, and the family it represents. I do not agree with their mission. But I also find them very very brave for doing what they believe in. I also think if you take the religion aspect out of it, it could be a book of goodwill and humanity, and changing the lives of the less fortunate. If people like the "Goode" family though would offer goodwill to people in their own country, then we would not have such distemper from other societies. Teach what you know where you know it, not in places that are not open to it.
