As a self-professed non-reader, I stayed up to 3AM just so I could finish the book! How amazing God is! It is a story of a woman - a Muslim by birth, with connection to high ranking Afghanistan officials and of upper class family connections - who one day came upon Jesus Christ in a dream which began her lifelong journey to seek the true God. Bilquis Sheikh risked everything - even her life and her love for her grandson Mahmud - to follow Christ. What was so hard to put down were the words that intricately described her emotional connection to God - something which practing Muslim must deny - and to have a personal relationship with Him. Her knowledge of the Quran and the Bible gave her an immeasurable platform which God used her even in the midst of death threats and personal sanctification. To be set apart for Christ was what she desired! I read the updated version of this book which gave some historical context to her life after she came to United States and the tragic murder of her beloved grandson Mahmud, who was defending a person from an 'honor killing' (a practice where Muslims kill a family member because they became 'traitors' to the Islamic faith). The book is truly God-inspired, words in which gave me an encouraging view of my faith in Christ and how NOTHING is for my own and glory but that ALL THINGS ARE FOR CHRIST'S GLORY. 'I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me...' Philippians 4:13

This woman was a sheer example of a true follower of Christ living in one of the toughest worlds to live in for Christians: the Muslim world. She was deserted by her family. She was deserted by all except the Christian missionaries and a few of her househole servants. She could have been murdered. Under the hardest circumstances, however, she never left God. She trusted Him and just like with Joseph He remained faithful the her. God is good.

This was an interesting, first person account of one woman's conversion to Christianity. She endured personal hardship and sacrifice to become a Christian. She experienced much personal growth and valued her new committments. I will be recommending this book to my book group.

I have never written a review before but was so moved by this book that I felt compelled to. Miraculous is the only way to describe the story. The sacrifice and threat of harm is more than we have had to experience in this country. A wonderful story of God's love and redemption through His son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior Could hardly put it down..

This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read.It is full of so many Bible truths. The authors testimony is amazing and truly touched my heart. I would encourage anyone who has lost sight of who and what God is to read this book. This is a true encounter with our heavenly father. I finished the book wiht a smile on my face.

I cried twice in the first half of the book seeing God work in her life. A wonderful story of God's call and the acceptance of it.

This book should be read by every nominal christian. It constantly challenged me to desire His presence more and to want to walk and commune with His Spirit throughout the day. I can see so many areas of my life that I must work on if I will ever be able to not grieve the Holy Spirit. She was taught by Him and I aspire to the same. I is beautifully written and, it's a quick read. I loved it.
