Format: Paperback
When I first read I Dared To Call Him Father it blew my mind so much so that I have re-read it at least 3 times, which is unusual for me.
The story is basically about a Pakistani woman whose life is transformed when she meets God.
Instead of being a one-off lofty kind of meeting, where God may or may not exist, her meetings with God are both powerful and personal. So much so that she risks losing her family, who don't accept what she has experienced.
I recommend this book to anyone who would like a touch of God themselves. It really is an inspiring and deeply interesting read. I love it.

I happened upon this book in a bookshop by chance. It is fabulously inspiring and uplifting. I have bought many copies since for family and friends. It affirms and strengthens my belief that we can find God anywhere - He seeks for us and when we're willing to pay attention we find He is willing to share in every part of our lives

Format: Paperback
I bought this book at a Worship Conference with the idea that I could recommend it to a friend of mine. Bilquis Sheikh speaks honestly and openly about her life, the political unrest, the way in which both women and Muslim converts to Christainity were treated. Bilquis speaks about how she found references to Jesus in the Qur'an and so felt she wanted to find out more. She managed to get hold of a Bible and searched for answers to her questions and found them. I could not put this book down once I had started reading it and even though I wanted to finish it, getting to the end was disappointing as I had no more to read.

Bilquis writes in a way that draws the reader into her life and one can't help but side with her through the trials and persecution she found herself in. It certainly gave me a lot to think about as I realised her bravery and the close relationship she had with Jesus. I have recommended this book to many people especially those who are searching for the answers to the 'meaning of life.'

Format: Paperback
This book is easy to read and captivating in the truths it reveals. This book is receommended to Muslims, Christians and those interested in either religion. Given it is a true story, the facts are laid bare and plain, at times even difficult to digest. How can a human being endure such experiences?

You will not be disappointed.

I loved this book and I couldn't put it down. I admired this woman and her stand for Jesus against her family, religion and background. Reading her witness to God's love has helped to strenghten my faith and walk with Jesus.

Format: Paperback
This was a short book - it only took me an evening to read - but it was very inspiring. I already knew that Muslims who converted to Christianity were persecuted but I wasn't aware that it was actually stated in the Quaran that honour killings should be made on family members who left Islam for another religion. Bilquis was an extremely strong and faithful woman to continue living in Pakistan despite the threats that were made in her life. It made me really grateful that I live in Britain where, although the government still tries to restrict the behaviour of Christians, it is nowhere near as dangerous to be a Christian as it is in the middle east. It was also interesting to read about the contrast between Bilquis, who told everyone in her family that she had changed her religion, and her servant who was a "secret Christian." It made me wonder how many other "secret Christians" there are in Pakistan.
It did take me a while to get into this book because of the simplistic style in which it was written, but once I'd read a few chapters I was hooked. I'm glad that I read it as it has enlightened me to the risks that Christians in the middle east have to take. The only parts I didn't like about the book were the extra chapters added to the book in the new edition, which were written by one of Bilquis's Christian friends. They really didn't seem to add anything to her story, especially not the one about the differences between Eastern and Western cultures. However, this is just a minor annoyance.
Overall, this is a short and simple book about a Musim woman who takes the risk of converting to Christianity and how it changed her life.

The book really made clear the scripture matthew 6:33 seek ye first the kingdom of God... It was a inspiring read full of anxious anticipation of what possibly could happen next... An inspiring read for those who's faith is challenged by family, friends or circumstance!
