The author speaks the local language and has interviewed and conversed ^with hundreds of Afghans, both men and women. She listened to their stories and ^lived among them. And in the midst of all of that, she found Kingdom responses to ^the beliefs Afghani Muslims hold to be true.

Riveting and fast paced, In ^the Land of Blue Burqas depicts sharing the love and truth of Christ with ^women living in Afghanistan which has been called "the world's most dangerous ^country in which to be born a woman." 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.

KATE MCCORD is not her real name. To protect her, and the women ^she talked to, all of the names in the book have been changed-including Kate's. ^At the pinnacle of a high-powered career, Kate left it all, sold everything and ^went to Afghanistan to start an NGO with the goal to help Afghani women. She taught ^herself the local language and served there for over five years. Now she wants ^you to know the Afghan women she has come to love.

"I lived in Afghanistan for five years. I learned the rules - ^I had to."


The gray-bearded and black-bearded men in the back of the ^rickshaw eyed me. The gray-bearded man asked me, "Are you a Muslim?"


 For ^him, the word Muslim had a very clear definition. He did not just mean, "Are ^you submitted to God?" To which I could have said, "Yes, of course." He meant something ^much more precise: "Do you submit to the laws of the Prophet Muhammad as recorded ^in the Holy Quran and Hadith and as taught by the mullahs?" Whatever true response ^I could give would not be welcome.


Still, I could give a true response. I ^answered the gray-beaded man's question softly without arrogance or apology. "No, ^I am not a Muslim. I am a follower of the Honorable Jesus Messiah."


The black-bearded ^man scowled, brows furrowed. He leaned too close to my face and glared directly ^into my averted eyes. His words came out as a command, short and abrupt: "You should ^become a Muslim. It would be better for you in this life and the next."




"I lived in Afghanistan for five years. I learned the rules - I had to."


Riveting and fast paced, In the Land of Blue Burqas depicts sharing the love and truth of Christ with women living in Afghanistan, which has been called &quote;the world's most dangerous country in which to be born a woman.&quote;
