As a citizen of the United States of America, I am spoiled. I can walk or drive to my church without being arrested. I can meet in people’s homes and talk about the Bible without fear of someone coming in and killing everyone in that room. I can talk about my relationship with God and my faith without the worry of being shunned by my family.
But, at the same time, as a citizen of the United States, I do not get to see the amazing mountains that are moved that bring someone to their own decision to follow God. I do not see blatant miracles and answers to prayer (not that it doesn’t happen, it just doesn’t happen as clearly as it seems to in other places).
In her book, Which None Can Shut, Reema Goode shares story after story of God’s hand at work in the Arabian Desert which is a strictly Muslim nation. Goode’s stories include stories of healing, stories of answered prayers (God even answers her young son’s prayer for rain in the summer that she is unsure will be answered) and stories of open doors and opportunities of sharing who Christ is with important people in the community.
Each chapter of Which None Can Shut reveals Goode’s love for the people of the Muslim nation and the reader is given just a peek into the awesomeness of God’s power moving through the Arabia and the surrounding areas. An added bonus is the addition of a few resources for people who would like to learn more about what is happening in this part of the world.
