    1. Encouraging stories of Islamic women how have come to have come to faith in Christ. Readable, but poorly laid out.

    2. [Review as of 2009] As of posting this, I see a lot of very polarized reviews on this book. There are Christians who want to understand Muslim women in order to share their religion, and there non-Christians who feel that a book directed towards Muslim conversion is disrespectful. I'll try to stay more in the middle here!I enjoyed reading the stories in this book. There are dozens of life stories from women who have converted from Islam to Christianity in Africa, the USA, and the Arab world. In [...]

    3. Adeney writes really engaging stories of Islamic women, especially those who had converted to Christianity. The stories are good, though sometimes seem to be a little too uniformly glowing and a little too often trying to prove the same points. The book feels really focused on “what does it take to make Muslim women into Christians”, and misses a lot of the broader questions that are found within such an objective, including the questions that even making that statement brings up. The chapte [...]

    4. This doesn't seem to be what I expected, so I'm putting it straight onto my available list.OK - I decided to give it a try. I very much enjoyed some of the descriptions of the Muslim woman's world; the author took some very distinct women, from varied lives and backgrounds and described their environments and lives. Extremely interesting. She juxtaposed Islam and Christianity on several biblical thoughts, also interesting. Where I lost it was where she had these women converting to Christianity [...]

    5. Finished this up right before I went off to Egypt and Jordan as I wanted to familiarize myself a bit with Muslims. This book was very interesting, informative, and very easy to read. I highly recommend it to all my Christian friends because if you don't yet have any Muslim friends you most likely will soon enough and this book is a great introduction to Muslims, their beliefs, and how to interact with them. I was very encouraged by the book and now feel much more ready to engage Muslim women.

    6. Written by a Christian anthropologist, this book looks at the lives of Muslim women, and offers suggestions on how to reach out to them. The author provides a lot of good insights and interesting anecdotes, many of which aren't available elsewhere. However, her writing style is a little hard to follow. She tends to jump abruptly from one topic to a completely different one.

    7. Really enlightening/interesting to get the perspectives, attitudes, and general cultural roles of Islamic women. Goes against or gives a very different spin on many things that are taken for truth about women in that culture.

    8. Very informativebut through great stories. Helps one to see how to make an easy connection with Muslim women.
