Which None Can Shut>>>Book Review 4 Tyndale :)

Happy Happy Monday!!
 I'm BAAACK from another break! I missed YOU!!

A short while ago, as I was stalking Blogsville{{{grin}}} I stumbled across a blog which had a Tyndale Publishers Review button on her sidebar. As someone who loves to read, it "Caught  my Eye"! As someone who has experienced salvation through Jesus Christ,  reading about His work "amongst us" is a pleasure and also, an eye opener!

ANYhoww, I signed up to "review" and picked out  Which None Can Shut by Rema Goode.
DISCLAIMER:  This book was provided to me by Tyndale Publishing for the purpose of Review. I receive no other compensation for my opinion than the book itself.  

Cover: Which None Can Shut              The Book  is a compilation of True Stories of how God is working in the Muslim World. The author writes about how her family was called to minister to Muslims in  an Arab country! She writes clearly about  adjustments to a different culture, with a dose of humour thrown in. Characters are introduced that the stories revolve around.  Danger swirls in a fog around them. Their faithfulness to God, in a multitude of oppurtunies, gives great joy as you see miracle after miracle unfold!

Even MORE importantly, God's FAITHFULNESS to them is revealed. When there is no other way, but God's way, He is showing  himself to  a people who are tied to"the law" and traditions.  They are a people who live in fear of retribution instead of Hope. They strive for perfection instead of clinging to The Perfect One. Despite all the barriers and dangerous possibilities,  God  provides great oppurtunities and great provision to this family during their daily activities.

Which None Can Shut  is not what I consider a "heavy" read.  However, it IS thought provoking and eye opening! It will stir your heart and drive you to your knees in prayer. It will fill you with joy as you walk (read) through story after story of God's perfect timing and as His plan is revealed.

Ironically, it is the last sentence of the prelude which resonates in my heart. "If the gates of Hell won't prevail against it, how can Islam?"  That sentence is a reference to Matthew 16:18.  God is working and HE can NOT be stopped! No one  and no thing can overcome Our God.  This was a book I could not put down!  You can find copies of Which None Can Shut Here.  I highly recomend book to anyone who wants to see God's power and providence in our world today! I look forward to more from Rema Goode. I am so glad I had the oppurtunity to read it!



  1. I love the thought...""If the gates of Hell won't prevail against it, how can Islam?" One could put anything in that sentence, don't you think. Awesome!

  2. Sounds like a great book.



Have fun, but, please mind your manners:)
