    This was a very interesting book about Goode's life sharing the Gospel in a Muslim nation. I enjoyed reading about the different culture and how Christians were viewed by the regular people in the community. It was an interesting snippet into how missionaries live in foreign countries, but also served as a reminder of how Christians can live in this country - walking the walk and demonstrating faith through our everyday interactions with others.

    It is a short book that could be finished in an afternoon, but the stand-alone chapters make it ideal to read over time while waiting for kids to get out of practice or school.

    A very interesting book that I would recommend for anyone who wants to learn about missionary life in the Arabian Peninsula.

    Ever wondered what is life of a Christian in a Muslim country is like?

    If you ever wondered about the lives of missionaries in Muslim countries and not just an "aerial" look but an account about the very lives, then Reema Goode's book is for you.
    Using the means of stories, something that we all love to read, she tells about her family's life and more importantly, how God opens the doors for witness among those of Islam religion.
    I have been interested in the happenings in the lives of Christians in countries like that for a long time. Mostly, it's because I think that those people really know what they believe because when you risk your life as well as your family members' lives for having faith in something, you better be confident what you believe and why. Also, I think that we can learn quite a lot from their experiences - we got too used to the religious freedom and stopped trying to sift the good teachings from the garbage that something sneaks in with the good stuff.
    What I especially like about this book is that the stories Reema tells are personal stories, not just "this happened to another person" but "this happened to my husband, my kids, and me" kind. Stories of God's majesty, stories of being afraid, stories about opened doors, and stories about what would God do in order to reach to His lost children.

    Learn Ways to Preach About Jesus to the Muslim World

    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 Review:

    In seems in recent days that there has been so much discussion in pertaining to the Muslim world and this book addresses all those very issues. Reema Goode felt a calling from God on her life to take the message of God into the parts of the world where the largest number of people needed to hear it and weren't. This led her to the Middle East. She ventured along with her husband Mike and for the past several years have led many people from the Muslim world to the truth in Jesus Christ.

    The book takes those down to earth stories from Reema and Mike and translates them to us to show how God uniquely used every day situations from a car not starting to a woman who was going to die with a brain tumor to lead them to Jesus.

    I received this book Which None Can Shut by Reema Goode compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and found it eye opening. Sometimes we don't know where to begin to share our testimony with others but in seeing the many ways Mike and Reema did, it has encouraged me to share mine more with people I come into contact with everyday. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about how to talk to Muslims about God in a personal way.

    Which None Can Shut

    American Christians take much for granted. We have an unlimited access to the Bible and are allowed to worship and proclaim our faith in Christ without fear of physical harm. Christians serving as missionaries in the Muslim world are not so fortunate. Which None Can Shut; Remarkable True Stories of God's Miraculous Work in the Muslim World is an intriguing book by "Reema Goode" (her name has been changed for security reasons) that chronicles her experiences as a Christian living in a hostile Arab country. With passion and raw emotion she describes how God is opening doors for the proclamation of the gospel among the Muslim people group. This book is about relationships. "Reema" speaks from the vantage point of a relationship-builder. She tells of her occasions to meet and get to personally know the women who were her neighbors. She takes the reader through her journey of taking time to get to know these women and their families and understand their Muslim culture and traditions. As trust was built from first being a friend, she was able to share the gospel with as the door opened. I really enjoyed the honest and accurate portrayal of the Muslim culture in this book. For those of us with little or no experience with Islam of the Muslim faith, Which None Can Shut gives some much needed and helpful insight. This book helped to know how I can better pray for Muslims around the world. Whether intentional or not, "Reema" gives the reader practical steps to beginning a dialogue with someone of the Muslim faith. If you want to know how to pray for Muslims, and also how to pray for the missionaries working to reach them for Christ, you will find this book encouraging, helpful, and enlightening. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
