Door to Freedom by Jana Kelley


Door to Freedom (New Hope, February 2017)
It’s rough and it’s smooth. It’s dark and it’s light. It’s a masterpiece. It’s us. Here in Sudan. We are scared of it and drawn to it. There is an open door, and there is much opposition.
In the dusty, Islamic country of Sudan, Mia, who is raising her family in a Muslim country, has learned to boldly share her faith. Rania, the daughter of a wealthy Sudanese Arab, seeks to find the reason for her sister’s sudden disappearance. Mia holds some of the answers, but both women quickly discover they must each walk through their own doors to freedom, the freedom that only comes when you trust God’s sovereignty more than manmade security.
Part of New Hope Publishers’ line of contemporary missional fiction, Door to Freedom, the sequel to Side by Side, opens the reader’s eyes to modern-day persecution and the life of Muslims in Sudan. Based on real-life events, Door to Freedom also reveals some of the struggles that Christians face when living under Islamic law. The reader will be inspired to pray for those who are persecuted for their faith as well as for the salvation of the persecutors.

My opinion: This book was such a wonderful read, I utterly devoured the two books in the series in a matter of days which is saying something! This book takes Mia and her family through another test of their faith as things in Sudan become harder and harder and threats are all around them, do they have the faith to stand up in the time of great danger even when there appears to be someone reporting them? We also get to know Rania who is upset and distraught over her sisters disappearance when she became a Christian, is Rania going to find that peace her sister found and is she willing to sacrifice everything to embrace it? Thought provoking and well written this book really brings to light what it must be like for those who are willing to give it all for the gospel.
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
