I received a copy of this book free to review. I was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed are my own and are based on my observations while reading this book.
It's rough and it's smooth. It's dark and it's light. It's a masterpiece. It's us. Here in Sudan. We are scared of it and drawn to it. There is an open door, and there is much opposition.
In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia, who is raising her family in a Muslim country, has learned to boldly share her faith. Rania, the daughter of a wealthy Sudanese Arab, seeks to find the reason for her sister's sudden disappearance. Mia holds some of the answers, but both women quickly discover they must each walk through their own doors to freedom, the freedom that only comes when you trust God's sovereignty more than manmade security.
Part of New Hope Publishers' line of contemporary missional fiction, Door to Freedom, the sequel to Side by Side, opens the reader's eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Door to Freedom also reveals some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as for the salvation of the persecutors.
"Door to Freedom" is the second book in this two-part series by Jana Kelley. Although it's not required to read "Side by Side"(book one), it would be helpful to read it so that you can understand the second book.
These two books are based on true events. I never took the time to understand all of the horrible things that happen to those who give up the muslim faith to follow Jesus.
Kelley did an amazing job in describing Sudan and it's culture. "Side by Side" & "Door to Freedom" are eye-openers of what it's like for a Muslim female to become a Christian & how it could lead to death.
