Publisher's Summary

If you truly love Allah, you will die for him. Your death will mean much reward for you and your family in heaven. Only death will prove your love.

It was the final test. A chance to win not only the love of Allah, but the love of her father - something she had never been able to earn. Esther took a deep breath and raised her hand in the air. At the age of 18, she had just volunteered to become a suicide bomber.

Defying Jihad is the true story of a girl growing up under radical Islamic rule, trained to believe her ultimate purpose was to serve Allah by dying as a jihadist. But two nights before she was to leave forever, she had a dream...one that would change the course of her destiny.

Against all odds, Esther became a follower of Jesus - even though leaving Islam meant her death sentence. But rather than kill her immediately, Esther's furious father challenged her to a series of public debates with Muslim scholars: the Bible versus the Quran. If Esther won, she might yet survive. But if the Muslim clerics won, Esther must renounce her Christian faith. For an entire month - if she lived that long - Esther would be brought before the mob daily to defend her newfound faith. Would God give her the words to argue against Muslim leaders, former friends, and even her own family?

Defying Jihad is an amazing story of a woman prepared to surrender all for Jesus - and whose life transformed from terror to overwhelming love.

Amazing life story. Amazing Christ.

I couldn’t put this book down. How I have taken for granted the privilege I have in South Africa, to talk & share freely about Christ. I have a new hunger for a more intimate relationship with my Lord Jesus Christ.

Wow. This was an amazing story- perhaps life altering for me. It’s hard not to believe in God with a story like this.

A profoundly moving account of becoming free!

This book is a riveting account of a woman's life before and after becoming Christian.
She, belonged to a very militant Islamic strain and therefore was brainwashed into believing that the only way to please Alla was to commit Jihad..
It is well written and narrated with great feeling.
A must read for anyone interested in understanding why Moslem's hate and want to kill in the name of Allah.
