I promise...

...that I read more than one book this month.

I just never got around to blogging about the other books I read. And honestly, February is such a short, insignificant month that I get a free pass, right? Especially since our entire family spent at least half of the month sick...

This weekend, a friend lent me Woman to Woman: Sharing Jesus with a Muslim Friend by Joy Loewen. I read the book in around twenty four hours; it was excellent. If you have a Muslim neighbor or friend and want to learn more about how to share with them the Greatest Gift, take some time to read through this book. If you don't know much about Muslims or think that they are all terrorists, please: read this book. If you just want to learn more about Jesus and other cultures because you don't know how or where God wants to use you, go read this book. Not only was it a challenge for me, but it was an encouragement! It called me to prayer and to a fervent desire to share more earnestly with the Muslim women I know (even though evangelism is not my strong suit).

I grew up in a large Muslim country, so Muslims have always had a special place in my heart. As children of Ishmael, the one that God heard, I know that He loves them too and has a purpose and hope for them. If you don't have the time to sit down and read all of Loewen's book, take a look at her blog and maybe learn something new that can get you started. Either way, take the time to pray for those who are trapped in the legalism of a sad religion that promises no truth, hope, or grace.
