Love In The Face of Isis: A Book Review

About The Book:

In less than a year's time, ISIS grew into a terrifying reality in the Middle East.

Thousands have been persecuted and martyred by this network of Islamic terrorists, and their numbers are increasing. It seems impossible to turn to the news without hearing of new atrocities committed by this violent organization. As ISIS continues to gain momentum and advance its territory, many Christians find themselves feeling powerless and afraid.

What can be done in the face of such evil?
In this timely, compelling book, Lorraine Marie Varela exposes the spirit behind ISIS and provides seven specific prayer strategies to effect real change in the Middle East.

Through true-life stories of supernatural intervention, you'll see how God is already at work in the midst of the violence in the Middle East--and you'll learn how to join His work through powerful, effective prayer. 

Don't be afraid.

Partner with the purposes of God--and declare to ISIS that Love is coming after them.

My Review:

I will be the first to admit that often I do not know how to effectively pray for the terrorist activity and strive that has occured both in the Middle East and all over the world, due in part to ISIS. I have such a heavy heart when I see the news and how many people are losing their lives because of this awful, gut-wrenching violence. 

The book, Love in the Face of ISIS was a remarkable and life changing read. It has given me great, practical tips of how to pray, how to love on our neighbor even when we don't agree with their actions and how to be Jesus in the light of pure evil. The book has a number of sample prayers that can be used individually or as a church for a prayer night! 

A valued resource that all Christians need to read and have at their disposal. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
