Self-inflicted wounds: when the Body hurts its own members
June 3, 2013

Mina Nevisa was born into a family of Islamic fundamentalists in Iran. Her life was translated from the ordinary to the extraordinary with a dramatic supernatural encounter with Jesus Christ. That pivotal experience turned her family and the Islamic authorities against her. Over the course of the subsequent twenty-one years Muslim radicals pursued her from nation to nation. The accounts of God’s miraculous interventions in her life will thrill and intrigue the reader.

Fridays, I am featuring a piece of literature, a teaching, or something related that has impacted me hugely and which I would like to see enrich the lives of others. Today, it is Mina Nevisa’s heart-pounding memoir of her encounter with Christ as a Muslim teenager, and her subsequent escape from Iran. Miracle of Miracles is a breathless page-turner that kept me rejoicing, crying, thanking God for my freedoms, and challenged me to pray for the persecuted church. Nevisa also educates Christians about Islam, and sheds light on its realities which the western media has scrambled to hide. Our contemporaries in other nations are living the book of Acts, and inspire us to contend for more of the Kingdom of Heaven. Now is the time, today is the day!

    Been wanting to read that book and keep forgetting to add it to my list. Thank you for this reminder.

    We are so blessed to live in a land where we have so much freedom.

    Yes, even I read this book Charity! And on a serious note, it’s probably the most intense, impactful book I’ve ever read.
