What is it like to live in a society where there is no active witness to the Gospel? In predominately Muslim countries, even the introduction of Jesus into a community can be dangerous. However, the Lord is bringing fruitful workers to begin discipling seekers. While fruit can be slow to produce and start as ones and twos, entire Muslim families and networks of families can eventually follow Jesus.
The first part of Where There Was No Church brings together stories that show what God is doing through his people among Muslims. The stories are engaging and bring to life fruitful practices and practical insights about reaching our Muslim neighbors. The second part of the book contains discussion questions to guide leaders in discussions about the narratives.
If you work in the Muslim world or are interested in doing so in the future, you will find this to be an excellent resource. The principles illustrated through the stories will also be of value to anyone living among peoples where there is no church. The stories can be heart-wrenching at times, but they also illustrate how prayer and faith can triumph in difficult circumstances.
