Customer Reviews For "A Wind in the House of Islam"Write Your Own Review
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.
