Reviews - What do customers think about The Desert Is Alive?
Excellent first half, disappointing second half, still worth reading Dec 27, 2006
This book is a collection of views of the mission field in Arab lands through international eyes without downplaying the difficulties of this mission field or understating the bravery of those who risk all to leave their Muslim faith to follow Christ.
The book feels rather randomly organised; the first half is excellent, containing scattered vignettes about Arabs who have found Christ, sections written by mission workers giving fascinating insights into their daily lives, descriptions of some of the wonderful people amongst whom they minister and explanations of what can be learned from these different cultures.
The second half of the book is far less successful, with information about the history of Arab World Ministries which read rather like an Annual Report, other rather bitty descriptions of setting up missions in different regions and a supposedly humorous look at life in the Middle East which didn't seem very funny to me (British humour and American humour are very different, and this was American). The first part of the book was an excellent and inspiring read but the disappointing second section spoiled the overall effect for me.
