Reports of Muslims coming to Jesus through the initial agency of dreams and visions of angels or Jesus has been so widespread across the last few decades it is hard to be a sceptic. In fact, such reports give many Christians hope that Islamic peoples now have opportunities to hear about Christ that they have never had in all their history.

This book makes it clear that in the pattern of the New Testament, these visions send the receiver to find a faithful Christian who will explain the Jesus they have encountered and call them to discipleship. A small appendix gives Doyle's criteria for an authentic dream in light of the biblical material.

I was impressed with the dedication of the new converts whose stories he tells, and their willingness to boldly proclaim Christ in circumstances where suffering and death are real and imminent prospects. When Doyle at certain points asks us to pray for particular people, I felt moved to do so.

This is a very quick read for a number of reasons - it's written that way, it's predominantly stories of people, and primarily it's exciting to hear about people coming to Jesus, particularly under dramatic circumstances.

But Doyle wants us to be more than interested. He encourages Christians to pray for and reach out to Muslims, whether internationally or locally, and to set aside the fear and hatred of many centuries of Western interaction with Muslims.

With many Western Christians fearful or at least suspicious, and with many of our countries caught up in conflict in Islamic countries, this book is a timely corrective and worth reading.

Basically this book is about stories of dreams and visions of the person of Jesus as He reveals Himself to Muslims in nine different countries around the world. I had heard about these encounters happening but never saw more than a brief paragraph summary. These stories are in much more detail and I found them intriguing.

Also included is a brief summary of several key dreams and visions in the Bible and information on how to test your dreams against scripture.

The object of the stories, that is the Muslims that get converted to Christianity, sound very passionate. I would say their passion is putting the western Christian church to shame.

Overall this book will impart a heart of compassion for the Muslim people, or at least help you to it if you are ready and willing. If you are interested in getting more compassion for the Muslims or like to read about actual dreams and visions where Jesus Himself shows up you will love this book.

What would you do if Jesus appeared to you in a dream? What if He came to you in a vision and told you to follow Him? What if these visions continued for over thirty days? would you believe? Would you put your trust in him? Would you devote your life to him?

Would you if you were Muslim?

Pastor Tom Doyle has spent eleven years as a  full-time missionary in the Middle East and Central Asia, spreading the word of Jesus Christ. Throughout his journey he has encountered a staggering number of Muslims who were first introduced to Jesus through a vision or dream so powerful that they eventually turned from their lifelong religion of Islam and embraced Christ as their Savior. Despite living in a culture where converting to Christianity can result in execution, these former Muslims have found hope, peace, and inspiration that comes from knowing Christ. Their stories will amaze you. Jesus is reaching out to the Muslims and they are responding. Did you know that Iran has the fastest growing church in the world?

Dreams and Visions is a remarkable collection of stories directly from the world of Islam. Doyle not only relates these stories, but also addresses the questions: Why would God use dreams to reach the Muslim world? Can dreams be trusted? What happens after these dreams or visions occur?

Travel to the heart of the Middle East to meet new believers who have truly been touched by Jesus in the most miraculous way, through their nightly dreams.
