Women Who Risk: Book Review

Tom and Joann Doyle have written a book about the testimony of eight Muslim women. The book provides a window into their life experiences. After each women’s story, the authors provide the text of Joann’s interview with her.

Women Who Risk was published in 2021. The setting is Syria, Lebanon, the Gaza Strip and Saudi Arabia. Each of the women have been on a spiritual journey that has given them hope and peace. The book provides an important perspective for our time. 

As I read about their life experiences, I praise God that He reached out to them with compassion and love, visiting them in dreams. 

The Bible reveals the worth of women. The book of Genesis states that both men and women are created in the image of God. The worth of women is displayed in God’s protection of Hagar in the desert, the rescue of Rahab from Jericho, Queen Esther in Persia. God chose Mary to carry Jesus, the Messiah, in her womb.
