In The Land Of Blue Burqas
Full Product Description
Riveting and fast paced, In the Land of Blue Burqas depicts sharing the love and truth of Christ with women living in Afghanistan which has been called "the world's most dangerous country in which to be born a woman." These stories are honest and true. The harsh reality of their lives is not sugar-coated and that adds to the impact of the book. Through storytelling the author shows how people who don't know Christ come to see Him, His truth and His beauty. The stories provide insight into how a Jesus-follower brought Jesus' teachings of the Kingdom of God to Afghanistan. They reveal the splendor of Christ, the desire of human hearts, and that precious instance where the two meet.
This is a collection of vignettes tethered together by the real danger that muslim women face in Afghanistan. These are firsthand accounts from the authors experience drawn from living among these women. The reader will see just how revolutionary Christ's message is today, and how radical it was during Christ's lifetime - the present day Afghan cultural attitudes are not unlike they were 2000 years ago. All of the names of those involved - including Kate's - plus the locations have been changed to protect the participants. Just take a few minutes and read the opening pages. You'll be hooked.

In the Land of Blue BurqasRuthie Thomas, via The Good Book Stall
Kate McCord is not her real name nevertheless the spirit of the author shines through in her stories of life among Afghanistan's men and women. The writing is very descriptive and is as detailed as describing and using a dialogue on the colour and length of beards worn by the Afghan men. Also among the sights and sounds of everyday life the pages share some startling stories of covered pain. This book is also an exploration of a Christian woman into the belief and way of life of the Afghanistan people. She walks with strength, sharing her personal story of forgiveness in the hope of being an example. We see powerful change amongst individuals with horrific stories as they decide to forgive those they hate.
