Book Review: Which None Can Shut by Reema Goode
There are many times when I have wondered what it would be like, to be a missionary in a Muslim country. After reading Reema Goode's Which None Can Shut: Remarkable True Stories Of God's Miraculous Work in the Muslim World I feel that I have an idea of what that life might be like. Writing under a pseudonym to protect not only her and her family, but those who have been led to Christ by them, Mrs. Goode shows us the world that she, her husband and her two children live in.
This book is not a book that instructs people how to evangelize the Muslim world, nor, is this a book that tells the world the statistics of those who were Muslim and have now come to faith in Jesus Christ. What this book is, is a wonderful collection of experiences that Mrs. Goode and her family have lived through while sharing the love of, and the Good News of Jesus Christ. This book is a very easy read and was one that I had a hard time putting down. As I read this book, I felt as though I was having a cup of coffee with Mrs. Goode in my living room, listening to her tell her stories to me.
This book will encourage as well as challenge you. If you are even remotely interested in the lives of missionaries in Muslim countries, then this book is a must read.
Please note that Tyndale House Publishers has provided me a complimentary copy of this book for my review; however, the opinions are my own. I have not been required to publish a positive review.
