Book Review by Ira Kurtz

Islam Encounters Christ: A Fanatical Muslim’s Encounter with Christ in the Coptic Orthodox Church

She was a devout Muslim and suspicious of Christianity. She was also Dean of a girls’ high school in Cairo, Egypt with about 4000 students. Her position brought her into contact with Christian students and Christian staff members—even the high school principal who was a Christian. She also had Muslim family members in high positions in Egyptian society, for example the military, intelligence.

But she had an encounter with Christ in a vision, and later was baptized. That was only the beginning of her sufferings for Christ.

Read her story in this book, which you can find in our Church library.
