Blog Tour Review: Door to Freedom by Jana Kelley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It's rough and it's smooth. It's dark and it's light. It's a masterpiece. It's us. Here in Sudan. We are scared of it and drawn to it. There is an open door, and there is much opposition.

In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia, who is raising her family in a Muslim country, has learned to boldly share her faith. Rania, the daughter of a wealthy Sudanese Arab, seeks to find the reason for her sister's sudden disappearance. Mia holds some of the answers, but both women quickly discover they must each walk through their own doors to freedom, the freedom that only comes when you trust God's sovereignty more than manmade security.

Part of New Hope Publishers' line of contemporary missional fiction, Door to Freedom, the sequel to Side by Side, opens the reader's eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Door to Freedom also reveals some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as for the salvation of the persecutors.

This was a well written, interesting book that makes you think twice about complaining about America!  The author bases her story on her real life experiences living in Africa and the Middle East.

Mia and Michael are not missionaries but they are Christian and they are working for a humanitarian aid company from the US.   As Christian's they seek to share their faith with their Muslim neighbors.  They have already converted one girl who had to disappear and flee the country after being beaten by her family for believing.  Now her sister is on that same journey of faith.  Will she be brave enough to face the same persecution or will her fear keep her a captive to her family's beliefs and customs?

I really like the deepening of Mia and Michael's faith and their increasing boldness to share their faith  as they start studying the book of Acts together. Their growth and the way God works things out for them is encouraging.
