Marjorie White, a missionary teacher for over twenty years, has written this book at the request of missionary schools who want to train educators to serve in Muslim countries. The book covers the personal perspectives and experiences in Iran during her time of service and her own perspectives on relating to those of the Muslim religion that she learned from interaction with her Muslim students, friends and co-workers.The books of Moses were the only text that she was allowed to use in her religious education classes in both Sudan and Iran and this presentation is fairly representative of what she taught. Parts of this book are devoted to her use of the new teaching technique of using literary methods to teach science and other non-literary subjects. This book is timely, as it addresses today's new interest in teaching Bible truths throughout school curriculum.
