Publisher's Summary

Explore the incredible work of the Lord in the hearts and lives of women in the Muslim world! In these gripping stories of Christ's presence straight from the underground church, Pastor Tom Doyle and his wife, JoAnn, show you how women in Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Iran are leading their communities to faith in Jesus—and how you can too!

Despite enormous risks to themselves and their families, former Muslim women are now influencing their husbands and their children and bringing others to faith in Jesus Christ. No matter where they live, these women are the God-ordained spiritual gatekeepers of their families. Even though the level of oppression that women face under Islam is unfathomable to many in non-Muslim nations, these brave women stop at nothing to share their faith.

The Doyles believe that women are a major reason why more Muslims than ever are coming to faith in Christ. Over the years they have discovered that once God sets a Muslim woman free, she becomes an unstoppable force for God. Women Who Risk takes readers into Muslim homes in Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, and other hot spots to see the power of Christ at work. This incredible book contains:

  • Inspirational stories straight out of the underground church—stories you don’t get on the news
  • Examples of the miraculous works of God happening in the Muslim world
  • The experiences of pastors who have worked for the past twenty-five years in the Middle East
  • A clear call to action sounding the alarm to the body of Christ
  • Motivation for all Christians to boldly share their faith with family and friends

The stories of these women are both breathtaking and heart-rending. Living on the edge, these women spread the gospel without fear, and the victory of the gospel is thrilling for all to see. If you’re wondering if God still performs miracles or are afraid your life can't make an impact, then this is the book for you.

Critic Reviews

"The stories in this book have broken my heart, put tears on my face, and pressed me to my knees in prayer for women who have risked everything to follow Jesus. Their steadfast faith when facing death, their strength to endure abuse, their courage to bear witness of the Truth, and their sheer joy in Jesus make them women to emulate. Read this, and you will love Jesus more and be filled with gratitude that He loves you, and me, and women everywhere. Thank you, Tom and JoAnn Doyle, for these incredible, jaw-dropping stories." (Anne Graham Lotz, author, Jesus in Me)

"Eye-opening, awe-inspiring, praise-evoking - Women Who Risk is an exhilarating peek behind the veil to see how, despite the danger, Jesus is reaching and empowering Muslim women to live for him. Let our friends, Tom and JoAnn, take you on an exhilarating journey of discovery that will enrich your faith and encourage your soul. You'll be riveted and enthralled by these astounding stories!" (Lee and Leslie Strobel, authors, Spiritual Mismatch and The Case for Christ

"Like war correspondents, Tom and JoAnn Doyle report from behind enemy lines about the spiritual combat conditions we, who live under a Declaration of Independence, cannot comprehend. Women Who Risk is not fiction. These are all real-life stories that have been lived out in the midst of savage brutality and unmitigated evil. There is a higher battle than the ones played out in the Middle East today. It's a battle for human souls. Here is wrenching fear and pain transformed to ecstatic joy, a gritty, compelling account of our world God calls us Christians to confront with His transforming power." (Jeanne Hendricks, speaker, author, and wife of the late Dr. Howard Hendricks )

Fire for God!!!

Words cannot express how much these stories blessed me. Many times throughout the book I had to stop and pray, unable to hold back my tears for my sisters’ sufferings. I also wept with a burning desire to love and serve the Lord with such fervency, and thirst for his Word as they did. I was convicted for taking my freedom for granted and all that I had at my disposal here in the states. Praise God for taking the risk to record these precious testimonies…

So powerful!!

I do chores around the house like laundry and dishes while I listen to audiobooks. This might be one of the few times that I couldn’t wait to get work done around the house! These stories are so eye-opening from my comfortable suburban house in America with my loving husband. I think the Doyles for sharing these impactful stories of how Jesus is changing lives around the world.

man or women reader, this is amazing!

good thing it's an audio book, so I didn't have to put it down. It was so exciting that I could listen to it while doing my long runs. Its inspirational and makes you think differently of the women who live in Islam. My prayer life has changed too. I really couldn't recommend this enough. Don't think this is just a book for women either.

Convicted and Inspired

Women who risk became one of my favorite books. I couldn’t quit listening to the stunning recounts of visions, acceptance of Christ, their willingness to lay all on the line for Christ - now their first love. I couldn’t help but yearn even more deeply for their fervor to catch fire here in the west among Christians. I teach Bible studies where it would start off packed and midway through a series it would’ve dropped by 50%. Everyone always had something else more pressing to do. But these women risk their lives just to get to Bible studies. My heart applauds them on, while grieving for us and our apathy. God bless these MBBs. I will always be praying for them as a result of this book.

Tom and JoAnn Doyle are an inspiration to those of us who want to reach the persecuted church and stand with them in their sufferings as they stand for Christ. You will be amazed and encouraged by the accounts of these who risk everything for the gospel.
