Leaving Islam for Christianity cost her more than she imagined, but gave more than she could have dreamed.

Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents' orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.

Hiding in the Light is the story of Rifqa's remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how she ran from her father's threats to find refuge with strangers in Florida, only to face a controversial court case that reached national headlines. Most of all, it is the story of a young girl who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus--and who inspires us to do the same.

I was impressed of her dedication to Christ at a young age. Her dedication to give up all she knew, including her family to follow Christ. Wow!

I read a lot of books, and I haven't read many that I couldn't put down lately. I was up to 3 am reading this book. Loved it!

Powerful;insightful,perhaps inspiring and controversial. Extremely well-written real-life drama of a teen's conversion, the fall-out from it and the indefatigable faith of this woman!
