The Next Target was a heart stopper - Once started, I could not put it down. The death of Sabirah because she had converted from Islam to Christianity was only the beginning. Following her death, there was the continued danger for those who had been involved in leading her to know Jesus.
The story was well worth the time spent reading - at least till the climax and events following that climax. The jump from climax to conclusion was too quick and unexpected, leaving this reader disappointed and expecting more. Events were missed and left unexplained in the context of the story.
That being my only disappointment, I found the book exciting and satisfying.
A year ago, I was privileged to read another book that focused on the evangelism of Muslims. The Camel: How Muslims Are Coming to Faith in Christ was a glimpse into the real lives of men and women who are sharing Christ to those who practice Islam. Though fictional, The Next Target served as a good review to the task that must be faced by those who are presenting a Savior to a faith that has rejected Jesus’ divinity.
