I love reading about WHY Muslims turn to Christ. Did you know that many of them see dreams of a man dressed in a white robe? Not thousands, but Millions are seeing dreams of a man named Jesus. They feel compelled to read the bible after experiencing these dreams. In many of these countries, giving your life to Jesus can cost you your life. Its a life and death decision, yet, millions are choosing HIM. They find the LOVE in the bible the exact thing they have always longed for. Here are the highest rated testimonies of those Muslims who take a leap of faith and follow Jesus, even if it costs them their lives.

Dreams and Visions is a remarkable collection of stories directly from the world of Islam. Pastor Tom Doyle has spent eleven years as a full-time missionary in the Middle East and Central Asia, spreading the word of Jesus Christ. Throughout his journey he has encountered a staggering number of Muslims who were first introduced to Jesus through a vision or dream so powerful that they eventually turned from their lifelong religion of Islam and embraced Christ as their Savior. Despite living in a culture where converting to Christianity can result in execution, these former Muslims have found hope, peace, and inspiration that comes from knowing Christ. Their stories will amaze you. Jesus is reaching out to the Muslims and they are responding.

“The story itself is also amazing. As a Christian, it was inspiring to see how one sentence from the Bible was able to transform Mosab’s heart and change the course of his life. As a result, many lives were saved.”
How does faith survive, let alone flourish in a place like the Middle East? How can Good truly overcome such evil? How do you maintain hope when all is darkness around you? How can we say “greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world” when it may not be visibly true in that place at that time? How does anyone live an abundant, victorious Christian life in our world’s toughest places? Can Christianity even work outside of Western, dressed-up, ordered nations? If so, how?
David Garrison spent three years travelling a quarter–million miles through every corner of the Muslim world to investigate reports far and wide of Muslims turning to faith in Jesus Christ. In this amazing odyssey, Garrison gathered the stories of more than a thousand Muslim–background believers, asking them the question: “What did God use to bring you to faith in Jesus Christ? Tell me your story.”
The result is a historic and unprecedented insight into the greatest turning of Muslims to Christ in history. Hear the stories of men and women who have sacrificed everything – home, family, even their lives – for the sake of following Jesus.
To many Christians in the Middle East today, a “momentary, light affliction” means enduring only torture instead of martyrdom. The depth of oppression Jesus followers suffer is unimaginable to most Western Christians. Yet, it is an everyday reality for those who choose faith over survival in Syria, Iran, Egypt, Lebanon, and other countries hostile to the Gospel of Christ. In Killing Christians, Tom Doyle takes readers to the secret meetings, the torture rooms, the grim prisons, and even the executions that are the “calling” of countless Muslims-turned-Christians.
Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh knew they were putting their lives on the line. Islamic laws in Iran forbade them from sharing their Christian beliefs, but in three years, they’d covertly put New Testaments into the hands of twenty thousand of their countrymen and started two secret house churches. In 2009, they were finally arrested and held in the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran, a place where inmates are routinely tortured and executions are commonplace. In Captive in Iran, two courageous Iranian women recount how God used their 259 days in Evin Prison to shine His light into one of the world’s darkest places, giving hope to those who had lost everything and showing love to those in despair.

All Christian disciples have one thing in common: as they carry the gospel across the ocean and across the street, persecution will become the norm for those who choose to follow Jesus. How believers respond in the face of persecution reveals everything about their level of faith and obedience. The Insanity of Obedience is a bold challenge to global discipleship. Nik Ripken exposes the danger of safe Christianity and calls readers to something greater. The Insanity of Obedience challenges Christians in the same, provocative way that Jesus did.

If only Muslims would read this book. They would have no doubts of the “smoke and mirrors” that Islam truly is. Islam is diabolical in that it portrays itself as a Religion of the “Book”. Yet it leads sweet Muslim souls away from the “Book”; God’s Word already revealed in the Jewish Torah and Christian Gospels (500 yrs before Muhammad). The Qur’an actually makes Muslims believe they are reading something divine. When all it is – is mostly unintelligible lies, murmurings and threats from an intolerant, belligerent, non-divine, non-prophet of a man. 1 in every 55 versus in the Qur’an incites Muslims to make war on unbelievers. This book literally drips with evil. The word “love” is conspicuously missing from the Qur’an entirely.
