- We Died Before We Came Here
Reviews (3) Write a Review
The whole of my family (including teenage children) read this autobiography one after the other - including some of us reading it in one sitting. Not that it is particularly short, but it is very readable and quite unputdownable. It tells about the sacrifice inherent in accepting the call to cross-cultural mission in a closed country. One of my favourite lines is that it is called the "great commission" and not "the great suggestion". The book itself challenges apathy, unwillingness or fear to serve God in reaching out to our Muslim neighbours - be they here or across the world. We would recommend this to anyone who loves the Lord - but you will definitely need a box of tissues to hand as it is a heart-breaking though heart-warming read.
I’m really glad Emily Foreman decided to write her story. She’s very honest about her struggles, and it’s amazing to read about how God changed her and gave her a real passion and energy for reaching out to Muslim women. Although Emily and her husband were very normal and definitely not perfect, God used them incredibly. This is a very moving and readable account of their experience and sacrifice.
I have just finished reading this. It's a really moving account of an ordinary family who went to serve God overseas. It a warm, well-written and challenging book of normal people, from our generation who are all out for God. I really commend it.
