David Garrison

$29.99

Paperback

There are nine geo-cultural "rooms" in the "House of Islam," and the Wind of God's Spirit is blowing through every one of them. David Garrison spent three years travelling a quarter of a million miles through every corner of the Muslim world to investigate reports far and wide of Muslims turning to faith in Jesus Christ. In this amazing odyssey, Garrison gathered the stories of more than a thousand Muslim-background believers, asking them the question: "What did God use to bring you to faith in Jesus Christ? Tell me your story."

The result is a historic and unprecedented insight into the greatest turning of Muslims to Christ in history. Hear the stories of men and women who have sacrificed everything - home, family, even their lives - for the sake of following Jesus.

In this book, you will hear from men and women from West Africa to Indonesia and everywhere in between. You will see how God is at work through answered prayers; dreams and visions; 21st-century technologies such as Internet, satellite television, video and audio tools; and bold Christian witnesses who have often paid the ultimate price for the sake of reaching Muslims for Jesus Christ. Along the way, you will also gain insights into the fascinating background of each of these nine geo-cultural rooms in the House of Islam.

Very Encouraging
5 stars By Derek Davey, Dec 24 2015
David Garrison gives a review of the significant movements toward God in history and recently. It is a tonic for the frequent stories we hear of the persecutions and difficulties of mission to Muslims. He has researched as well as able across the whole of the Muslim world, interviewing many who have come to Christ. The majority of these have stayed in their communities, continuing to be able to witness and infiltrate, while gathering together in small groups for support and be accountable to each other. This is not a book of statistics, rather a few numbers and then people's stories. The common pattern seen is people being dissatisfied with Islam. Some dreams and visions act as triggers to search and understand the Koran. In understanding, they see the problems with Mohammed in contrast to the positive presentation of Jesus. They then search further in the New Testament, learning more of Jesus and the way of salvation. They confess Christ as God and Lord. Most are reached through personal contacts and their searching. Media is impacting some areas such as Iran. The Scriptures in their own languages is essential. David comments on how we can help and participate.
