[Book Review: WHICH NONE CAN SHUT by Reema Goode]
If you ever wondered about the lives of missionaries in Muslim countries and not just an “aerial” look but an account about the very lives, then Reema Goode’s book is for you.
Using the means of stories, something that we all love to read, she tells about her family’s life and more importantly, how God opens the doors for witness among those of Islam religion.
I have been interested in the happenings in the lives of Christians in countries like that for a long time. Mostly, it’s because I think that those people really know what they believe because when you risk your life as well as your family members’ lives for having faith in something, you better be confident what you believe and why. Also, I think that we can learn quite a lot from their experiences – we got too used to the religious freedom and stopped trying to sift the good teachings from the garbage that something sneaks in with the good stuff.
What I especially like about this book is that the stories Reema tells are personal stories, not just “this happened to another person” but “this happened to my husband, my kids, and me” kind. Stories of God’s majesty, stories of being afraid, stories about opened doors, and stories about what would God do in order to reach to His lost children.
