    One thought on “Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?”

    1. Real live adventure stories“Dreams and Visions” by Tom Doyle is an exciting set of stories from the Middle East about how Jesus is appearing to Muslims. The book cycles through the major counties in the Middle East with stories of how real people have had their lives changed through Jesus. Each story is fairly short and many are told as adventure stories, and as a result are impossible to stop reading part way. Interspersed through the book are various commentaries from the author who reflec [...]

    2. This was one of those "hard to put down" books! Doyle tells the stories of Muslims throughout the world who are converting to faith in Jesus Christ through one-on-one encounters with Jesus in dreams and visions. He's careful to build the case stating that no one goes to bed a Muslim and wakes up a Christian (or Jesus follower). But the encounters begin a journey of asking questions, researching on the internet, and studying the Bible, followed by miraculous encounters with other Jesus followers [...]

    3. I read a book Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity and was almost profoundly moved by the first person story it relates. So I picked this book upd it's not bad. I can only give it 3 stars as it's a third person narrative of what happened to other people. The stories are interesting but I found them more distant (as I'd suppose they'd have to be) and the doctrinal teaching a little more heavy and center stage.So not a bad read and some will enjoy it far more than [...]

    4. I like stories (I loved my anthropology classes at A&M). You might think I read a lot of fiction (and you would be right) but nothing, not even a vampire-werewolf-love triangle, can hold a candle to real life stories of faith, forgiveness and finding your way. They are my favorite type of stories and Dreams and Visions by Tom Doyle is full of these types of stories. I love that he begins but stating that these are NOT fairy tales, but that he himself or someone trusted close to him, know the [...]

    5. This was an amazing book. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first. I typically don't give much credence to "dreams" or "visions", but the overall argument of the book is compelling. Doyle lists many examples of Jesus appearing to Muslims all over the Middle East, and the cumulative effect is astonished gratitude for how God is showing His face to people trapped in dark places. The stories of torture, persecution, and execution were heart-breaking, and stirred me up to pray more diligently [...]

    6. Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? By Tom Doyle with Greg WebsterPastor Tom Doyle, full time missionary in the Middle East and Central Asia has spent over 11 years spreading the good news of Jesus Christ among Muslims. In his time in ministry, he has witnessed many Muslims who had specific dreams and visions of Jesus. Despite the Muslim rule of law in many countries that says that if you convert to Christianity, death will be your end, many Muslims are pursuing Jesus after [...]

    7. If you need a shot of encouragement of what God is doing today in some of the darkest and volatile places in the world, Dreams and Visions - Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? by Tom Doyle and Greg Webster is the book to read.The visions are often very similar. A figure in white robes with arresting eyes and nearly always an experience of intense love. Many times Jesus turns up night after night, often entering into conversation and a call to ‘follow me’. The dreamers are inexplicably draw [...]

    8. I have nothing but praises for Mr. Doyle's work in Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? But more than the narrative and page-turning compilation of the amazing stories of visions and dreams of Jesus that our Muslim brothers are having, is of course, the only Savior Himself - Jesus!We all know or at least are familiar with the persecution of Muslims who converted to become a follower of Jesus Christ, it is a downright dangerous path for them. And since the risks involved for m [...]

    9. I am Assyrian American. I was raised in the Anglican Church, then belonged to an Evangelical Church and then, found my way back to my mother's native church, the Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East. Mr. Doyle has conveniently left out key historical and current facts about Christians in the middle east. Or, he simply fails to understand the history of Christians in the middle east. His point of view is very typical of the western Christian mentality to divide, conquer and control [...]

    10. "Dreams and Visions" contains confirmed, first-hand accounts of Muslims who have dreamed about or had visions of Jesus. These dreams motivated them to seek out Christians and ask questions about Jesus and for a Bible to read. Christians have been able to use these visions as a way to lead Muslims to Christ. It was exciting to read about how God is powerfully working in the Middle East! Do I believe God can send dreams and visions? Of course. There are examples of this in the Old and New Testamen [...]

    11. One of my favorite books of all time!!! What a powerful, eye-opening account of how Jesus Himself is appearing to Muslimsat they may know Truth and embrace Him as Savior. The gripping stories of former Muslims who became followers of Christ will challenge you as you witness their depth of faith that compels them to seek out and share Truth at the ever-present risk of losing their own lives.

    12. This is an amazing account of Jesus appearing to Muslims in dreams and many of them coming to Christ as a result. It is a powerful book and has caused me to want to reach out to Muslims rather than fear them.

    13. I was moved by each chapter. one that is hard to put down!! LOVE to hear how God is working in the hardest of hearts and just how powerful a dream can be to some!!! whatever it takes. God does work in mysterious ways

    14. 4.5 stars, actually -- but only because the "conversational" tone of the book sometimes made it difficult to follow. Amazing subject; amazing book -- and there is an almost palpable love and joy that permeates the whole thing!

    15. I recently finished reading "Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?" by Tom Doyle. So there's some history to my interest in this subject. A while back I started hearing that many Muslims in the middle east have been seeing visions of Jesus and becoming believers, oftentimes despite having no prior familiarity with Christianity outside of what they've been told by Islamic leaders. A few of these reports have even made it into independent news articles, which you've probably see [...]

    16. In the preface it talks about the state of the world. “Sometimes it seems as if the “tares” sown in the Master’s field are taking over. Yet there is a God in heaven who still cares about us. Still sits on His throne, and still has a plan. And thanks to His revolutionary plan for our world, the wheat is flourishing.”I want to share a couple of experts from stories found in Dreams and Visions. The first is from Imam’s the Word.Hassan startled awake to a rough hand clamped firmly over h [...]

    17. Awesome"And it shall come to past afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophecy, your old men shall dream dreams. Your young men shall see visions. And also on my menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days."- Joel 2:28-29. This book talks about how God is reaching the Moslem world through dreams and visions. Since 80% of the Moslem world don't read the dreams become an effective avenue for sharing the good news [...]

    18. Hubs bought this book and kept sharing some of the stories with me. I was hooked. Our Lord is appearing to Muslims in the Middle East, through dreams, and directing them to specific Christians to learn more about Him. Fascinating events. Opened my eyes to so much that Jesus is doing in people's hearts and minds in cultures that are closed to Him. Prayer DOES reach those who need His comfort and life! God just keeps giving them Himself, every night, for 30 nights, with a peace and love they never [...]

    19. Always encouraging to hear of how God is working in the hearts of people around the world. He's doing amazing things in the Islamic communities. Need to keep praying for these new disciples of Jesus that literally are putting their life on the line daily to serve their lord Jesus. Convicting for me too, that I don't share my faith with half the fervor as these believers who have seen the risen Savior in dreams and visions and have felt his peace. And this peace shatters their understanding of Go [...]

    20. Just a few words on this book. This is a must-read for anyone planning a mission trip to any predominantly Muslim country. A friend of mine is going to Jordan in November, 2017, and I convinced him to read this book. Very well written, with lots of very good stories that will help give him a better understanding of what to expect when he begins his missionary work there.

    21. Fascinating stories of God moving in the Muslim worldThis book, along with Standing in the Fire and Killing Christians, has opened my eyes to the Muslim world an how God has been revealing Himself to people there. It is humbling to read of their courage, their faith, and their committment to all the Bible teaches.

    22. Excellent read. Both informative as well as inspiring and faith-building. Gives great background on a number of different Arab countries and cultures all interwoven in narratives and testimonies of Christ revealing Himself to people in love. Highly recommend.

    23. Good read, gives a broad overview with specific stories country by country of how Muslims are seeing dreams and visions of Jesus. Has helped grow my understanding of the middle east and the people who live there.

    24. Relentless. This is a portrait of a God who is relentlessly loving and gracious and powerful. My heart is so challenged. I feel as if I have traveled throughout the Middle East and met these amazing fellow believers, whom I long to learn from and grow to be more like.

    25. An eye-opening book that was both heart-wrenching and inspiring. I am glad to have more understanding and love for Muslims than I did before reading these stories. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a unique perspective of the Muslim world.

    26. Christian NonFiction ExcitingRead this a few years back, and I'm so glad I did. It is a truly encouraging account of what the Lord is doingright now, in our lifetime!Many thanks to Mr. Doyle for writing it.

    27. Pros: I enjoyed the research into what God is doing through dreams and visions in the Muslim world. Cons: The stories all seemed to much the same after awhile.
