Publisher's Description:

Their clothing is often distinctive. Their values are strongly held. They love their families. They comprise nearly one-tenth of the world's population, and they live everywhere around the globe. These are women of Muslim background. Many still belong to Islam, but some now belong to Christ. In Daughters of Islam, Miriam Adeney introduces you to women like Ladan, Khadija, and Fatma. You'll learn about their lives, questions, and hopes. You'll learn how they are both representative of and unique among their Arab, Iranian, Southeast Asian, and African sisters. And you'll discover what has drawn them to Christ. Adeney explores the many interwoven threads that make up daily experience for Ladan, Khadija, Fatma, and their sisters, including: sexuality, singleness, and marriage; children and extended family; finances; religious tradition and practice; and teaching and learning styles.

As you enter into the lives of Ladan, Khadija, and Fatma, you'll gain insight into how to relate to other women of Muslim background—and how to introduce them to Christ.
