Woman to Woman: Sharing Jesus with a Muslim Friendby Joy Loewen
Like many women in the Church, Joy Loewen didn't fully understand Muslim women or their roles in the Muslim culture and religion. In fact, she was afraid of them and not particularly interested in befriending them. But with prayer, wisdom, and a lot of love, Joy overcame these obstacles, found that she actually liked them, and that many of these women are irresistibly attracted to the love of Jesus. For the last thirty years she has used this knowledge to build authentic connections with Muslim women, reaching out to them in a sensitive, effective way.
In this practical and very personal book, Joy shares not only her insights into befriending Muslim women, but many helpful stories from her own experiences. Her goal is to help readers "move from fear to love and compassion" so that they, too, can love as Christ does. Woman to Woman is essential reading for Christian leaders, ministries, and any layperson who wants to grow in love for and understanding of Muslims.

Joy comes from a family background which has given her both the heart and the preparation for this kind of ministry. Over the years she has proven a definite capacity for this kind of sharing. You will not need to read very far into her book before you will be convinced that you too can and should be involving yourself in such an effort.I have given her 5 stars pretty much everywhere in these ratings; I am not such a judge to be able to properly critique the areas of "organisation, life changing, or your enjoyment" You can do this for yourself. Those other areas which I have rated so highly should motivate you to get a copy and to read it. We, who are involved in reaching Muslims, both men and women, invite you to join us in our efforts. We know that once you commence reading "Woman to Woman; Sharing Jesus with a Muslim Friend," you will be on your way.
