    For a fictional book, it is very realistic & full of adventure! I had a time putting it down to do my chores. I learned more about muslim life & the dangers of converting to believing in Jesus. Well written & reasy to read.

    People of the Book reminds us of our awesome responsibility to share Christ's love with others. This extraordinary book with its strong and moving plot, action-packed story and real-world characters, reveals the touch of a loving Savior to a lost and hurting world.

    All people have choices to make, and all choices have far-reaching consequences, some more life-affecting and life-altering than others.

    In Book 4 of the "Extreme Devotion" series, with rare grace and sensitivity, Kathi Macias makes a compelling story come alive in the hearts of people, proving that God's Word has incredible power to transform lives in unimaginable ways.

    With the extraordinary power of her pen, Kathi skillfully crafts a captivating, thought-provoking, and missions-oriented novel in which we see God touching the human heart.

    "People of the Book" searches for and finally finds Jesus Christ in an extraordinary tale of love, courage and sacrifice. Within the inevitable clash of faith, family honor and deadly, heart-wrenching realism, the people of "People of the Book" are held tightly in the everlasting arms of a loving, heavenly Father, who desires our heartfelt devotion above all else. To God be all the glory!

    People of the book was not an enjoyable read, it wasn't supposed to be.

    I didn't read it for personal pleasure. It was a shocking, frightening read about two young women's commitment to Christ that led them to die for Him.

    They professed their faith even though they knew they would likely die for it. They prayed for those who persecuted them. Imagine such commitment and Christian fruit in persecution!

    It was a beautiful story in a sad way, but perhaps the ending was the best ending for a Christian, if to live was Christ for them then to die was gain.

    It really will cause you to think of the Christians in foreign countries and to remember those Christians in our prayers,

    It certainly should not be read for enjoyment but for awareness and perhaps only for mature readers who will not be side tracked by the story and forget the truth, don't let your learning stop with this though.

    As Naomi Zacharias said, "Once you have been made aware, you have a responsibility to care."

    The author wrote this book well, though it is harsh, it is not graphic.

    I received this book free from the publisher it exchange for an honest review.

    If you liked Red Ink, then I believe that you'll love People of the Book. It draws the reader into the lives of two Arab women as they dare to face the "dangerous" possibility that their faith in Allah is false and that "Isa" is far more than a prophet. The heightened depth of emotion and appreciation for "Isa" is stirring. Once again, Kathi Macias brings closely touches the heart and reminds us of our need for a relationship with our wonderful Savior. I also think that it's a good reminder to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. And, it encourages me to pray for their persecutors and that they will come to Jesus, too. I'll end by saying, don't miss reading People of the Book!

    Farah and Nura, two Muslim girls in Saudi Arabia, are drawn to Isa (Jesus), whom the Quran claims is just a prophet. Could He actually be God, as the people of the Book claim? Farah meets Isa in a lovely garden in her dreams. He says He's come to draw her to His heart. Nura gets to know Sara, an American teen, in a Christian chat room online. Sara's story is interwoven with the Muslim teens' as she struggles with faith and her wayward brother.

    If Farah and Nura choose to follow Isa they know they could face intense persecution and even death. Farah makes every effort to be a devout Muslim woman, but she doesn't experience the closeness to God she longs for. Her brother, Kareem, despises her and seeks opportunity to crush her. She fears what might happen if he finds out what she and Nura have discussed. Will Farah and Nura choose true faith over family and tradition?

    This heart-rending tale brings forth the reality of Middle Eastern life and religion. It challenges as it touches the spirit, all the while reminding the reader of how God works in individual lives. I have known people who have worked in Riyadh and have a friend who interacts with Saudis in the US, so this book was especially interesting. I applaud Kathi Macias for her Extreme Devotion series with stories of Christians around the world. People of the Book is the fourth of these, and each novel stands alone.
