Description

"See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it." -Revelation 3:8

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. This encouraging, uplifting, and even humorous firsthand account of a Christian family living among Muslims will inspire you in your own walk of faith, teach you how to pray for Muslims and those who minister to them, and encourage you with the knowledge that God's loving Light is penetrating the darkness.

    Especially since 9/11 there has been a resurgence of interest in Islam and the Muslim world among Americans. For American Christians there is an interest in promoting Christianity in such lands. Yet the challenges seem insurmountable: while Muslims certainly appreciate the freedom of religion and freedom of expression that exists in the West, they do not provide such freedom in their own lands. While some countries tolerate Christians and others to practice their religion, they still demand a payment of a tax, and they are forbidden from proselytizing. The real danger is for the Muslims themselves: if they convert to Christianity, Islam demands their execution. Those who convert them also risk great personal danger to themselves.On account of these challenges it is easy for Christians to dismiss Islamic lands and focus on other places where there is a wider opening. Nevertheless, the call of the Gospel is to go out to every creature, even if it is illegal to do so (cf. Mark 16:15, Acts 5:29). Furthermore, despite the official lines, the ignorance, and the misinformation, many in the Arab world are curious about what Christianity is really about. Should they be deprived of the Gospel?There are some people who attempt to promote the Gospel of Christ in Arab lands. One such person has recently written an account of her activities in promoting Christianity there in a book entitled Which None Can Shut: Remarkable True Stories of God's Miraculous Work in the Muslim World written by "Reema Goode" (true name withheld, no doubt, because of security concerns)."Reema" seems to be an Evangelical with perhaps Pentecostal leanings. She describes the stories of how she worked among men and women in an undeclared Arab country. She talks about how the culture gave her an opening to advance her purposes: the women frequently visit with one another and talk about all kinds of things. Most of the discussions she has takes place in this environment.The Muslim women feel that they need to bring her to Allah; she feels as if she needs to bring them to Jesus. She demonstrates her methods-- the questions she asks them, the questions she is asked, the demonstration of the Christian life, her praying, casting out of demons (so believed), signs and wonders (so believed), and so on and so forth.While I am certainly in no position to limit God and His power, I am also not convinced, personally, that there is a need for casting out of demons and the "signs and wonders" mentioned in the text. I am in no position to judge what is being claimed, but I retain my skepticism about such things."Reema" certainly feels as if the Lord constantly speaks to her in some way or another, and again, I am not in a position to judge. I have some concerns about theology also, since the "believers" are encouraged to "pray" to receive Jesus as opposed to following the Biblical pattern of being immersed in water for remission of sin to put on Christ (Acts 2:36-38, Galatians 3:27).Nevertheless, the book has value in showing that many Muslims do want to learn about Jesus, that prayer has value even today, and that with the right people, the right manner of life, and the right information in place, many Muslims are willing to have their viewpoint challenged, are willing to see the bankruptcy of Islam, and are willing to become believers in Jesus, despite the risks.Which None Can Shut demonstrates that we should never write any group off and that we must find ways to get the Gospel-- and Jesus' representatives preaching the Gospel-- into Muslim lands.*--book received as part of an early review program.
