These stories are honest and true. The harsh reality of their lives is not sugar-coated and that adds to the impact of the book. Through storytelling the author shows how people who don’t know Christ come to see Him, His truth and His beauty. The stories provide insight into how a Jesus-follower brought Jesus’ teachings of the Kingdom of God to Afghanistan. They reveal the splendor of Christ, the desire of human hearts, and that precious instance where the two meet.
This is a collection of vignettes tethered together by the real danger that Muslim women face in Afghanistan. These are firsthand accounts from the authors experience drawn from living among these women. The reader will see just how revolutionary Christ’s message is today, and how radical it was during Christ’s lifetime – the present day Afghan cultural attitudes are not unlike they were 2000 years ago. All of the names of those involved – including Kate’s – plus the locations have been changed to protect the participants. Just take a few minutes and read the opening pages. You’ll be hooked.
