Face to Face with Jesus by Samaa Habib

Born into Islam, Samaa becomes a Christian as a young teen.  Her story of being a Christian convert caught in a war-torn country full of Sunni and Shia conflict is a testimony to the saving power of the gospel and the sustaining power of the Holy Spirit.

Can Samaa survive war in the streets, family conflict inside the home, and finally a church bombing by terrorists?  Badly burned in the bombing, Samaa gets a glimpse of heaven before she is returned to do more work on Earth.  Her joy amid horrible hardships is incomprehensible--unless Jesus really is who He said He is and the Holy Spirit really abides in believers as the Comforter.

I received a free review copy of this book from Chosen Publishers.
