Book Review: Women Who Risk by Tom and JoAnn Doyle

17 September 2022

Women Who Risk gives us insight into the lives of eight women who serve Jesus while living in in predominantly Muslim countries.

Reviewed by Wendy Hateley

As a strong, independent woman living in a western country, I cannot imagine what it would be like to require my husband’s permission to do anything. The idea of being beaten if I were to disobey him or to be killed were I to choose a religion that was not the one I was born into is horrendous. Yet, in Women Who Risk: Secret Agents for Jesus in the Muslim World, we learn this is the story of many women living in the Middle East.

Tom and JoAnn Doyle share the stories of eight women who are former Muslims and now Christians in one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a Christian. My favourite story is about Kady, who lives in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, with her strict Muslim parents and brothers. Sadly, when they discover that she has become a Christian, her life comes into danger.

I was on the edge of my seat as I read what happened next. I had to remind myself that these are not stories of fiction but real-life scenarios that real people have lived through.

The joy these women have as followers of Jesus is contagious, and I am sure that as you take in this easy-to-read book, you will find yourself cheering them on and willing them to succeed as their stories fill you with joy as well.

Women Who Risk is available now at Christian bookstores.
