About "Door to Freedom":

"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 man-made 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 Freedomalso 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.

My thoughts:



I don't know anyone that is a Muslim so I only know a little bit about their culture from what I hear in the news or social media. Jana gives the reader a glimpse of how Muslim woman are treated and how Christians endeavor to live in an area where they are persecuted due to their beliefs. I also realize how good my life is here in America. I have the freedom to choose my spouse, my career, and I have the freedom to believe in Jesus. I feel as if I am better informed about the struggles that Christians and Muslims have to endure for their faith. 
I will be reading Side by Side as soon as I get caught up with other books that are waiting for me to get to.
