In The Land of Blue Burqas by Kate McCord

"In The Land Of Blue Burqas" by Kate McCord is about the author (under a Pseudonym name) life witnessing to and living with Afghanistan Muslims.  This was a very informative on the culture and life of the Afghan people.  Us westerns do not understand a lot of their culture just like they don't understand our culture.  The author really trys to help us understand things such as why they cannot accept a Bible.  She really goes into depth on explaining that when they receive a Koran its showing they are now a Muslim not like in our culture where if you receive a Bible then you just have got a Bible.  As it does not mean that you are a Christina in our society just cause you own a Bible but in their culture it means you are a Muslim if you own a Koran.  This book was very eye-opening and I really enjoyed how the author would use scripture and their own knowledge to explain Jesus's truths. This was a very good eye opener to Afghanistan culture that I would never have gotten unless I go over there myself.  I also really enjoyed that she talk about that us westerners do not need to go over there guns blazing on how we are right and they are wrong but that we need to go over there like Christ said which is to love our neighbors.  I highly recommend this very informative book. 

I was given this book from Moody Publishers for my honest review and was not required to give a positive review.
