5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book and astonishing biographical story, 16 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: I Dared to Call Him Father (Paperback)
This is a well written, easy to follow biographical account by a wealthy and prominant woman who lived in Pakistan in the mid 1960's. Pakistan a country of around 95% Muslims was not a country at that time where it was socially easy to convert from Islam to Christainity - indeed sadly some Christian converts were killed - by relatives who felt it their duty to do so in the name of their beliefs. It was within this context that the author began to have spiritual experiences and dreams that lead to her investigating the figure of Jesus Christ of the Bible (and who is referred to in the Koran though in a different manner in the latter book compared to the Bible).
I won't spoil the story but will say that The Lord Almighty is shown in the Bible as communicating with people many times down the ages through dreams and so the authors story isn't such a surprise. (Having read a number of biographies of people becoming Christians I am surprised more don't report dreams like this lady did).
The author does indeed in the face of huge and indeed threatening family and local opposition become a Christian. However there is much, more to the story than that and I recommend you read this book to find the rest out.
Its dramatic, scary in places and quite rivetting overall. There are surprises along the way as well.
It's said to be a true story and I believe it as it tallies with much other Christian experience as recorded in literature that I have seen and seems much in keeping with Biblical Scripture.
If you want to read of a risky journey of a woman to Christian faith and of what followed read this.

Excellent and thoroughly recommended.
