It is difficult for me to believe that this book has been out for a year and I am just now getting a copy of it. My brother gave me a copy for Christmas. I read it yesterday and knew that I must order 10 copies to give to my closest friends. The collection of stories in this book dramatically changed the way I view Islam and Muslims who forsake their faith in Islam. Oh what a high price they pay to follow Jesus. I read 30 to 40 books a year, and I believe this will most likely be the book of the year for me. Wow! Thrilling and Life-Changing!
At first I was troubled after reading chapter one. I simply could not comprehend the brutality that former Muslims are forced to face. However, I read a chapter every night before I went to bed. There is just something about this book that continues to draw me back time and time again. I have just completed reading 'The Costly Call' for the third time. It is the best devotional book I have read. I know that it is listed as a biography, but it should also be considered as a devotional. This book has challenged my own faith, and given me courage to share my fatih with two Muslim women at work. It is truly a challenging devotional.
The Costly Call is an outstanding tool to assist in understanding the Muslim mind. I have a much deeper respect for Muslims who have committed their lives to Christ. This book allowed me to reach into the hearts and minds of converted Muslims. POWERFUL!
This book has changed the way I view Muslims. Their stories are so passionate and genuine that it makes me examine my own relationship to Christ.
