Publisher's Summary

"After four years of hiding my faith from my family, I knew that it was time. I wrote with shaky hands, 'Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I refuse to deny him....' There was no turning back now. I had to get out of that house if I wanted to live. Was this worth risking everything for? Yes."

Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents' orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.

Leaving Islam for Christianity cost her more than she imagined but gave more than she could have dreamed.

Hiding in the Light is the story of Rifqa's remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity. It is also the untold story of how she ran from her father's threats to find refuge with strangers in Florida, only to face a controversial court case that reached national headlines. Most of all it is the story of a young girl who made life-changing sacrifices to follow Jesus - and who inspires us to do the same.

Critic Reviews

"Rifqa Bary's story is a powerful testimony to standing for the truth in the face of many difficulties and tall odds. In the words of this young woman who has already been through so much, we are painted a picture of stark cultural contrast - that of slavery and liberty, duty and love, and bondage and freedom. As much as anything, this is a story about the first freedom upon which America was built - the freedom to believe and live one's life according to those beliefs. Rifqa's inspiring story reminds us why we must continue to stand for faith and freedom!" (Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council)
"Rifqa Bary's story unveils God as the Father to the fatherless whose pursuit of His children is fiercely beautiful. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. She invites readers to walk beside her on her fascinating road and to see the God she saw when she said her very brave yes to Jesus." (Sara Hagerty, author of Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet)
"An extraordinary glimpse into the faith of a Christ-follower and the sovereignty of God. Rifqa's story informs, inspires, and empowers." (Max Lucado, pastor and author)

This is an amazing heart warming story!

This young lady has suffered through rejection of family, trials in the legal system and with cancer, all in her quest to follow Jesus. As a part of her story, it is inspiring to see how God used Christians in her life to to lead her to faith in Jesus and to encourage her in her Christian life!

Absolutely Amazing

My first book on audible, and so glad to have chosen this to hear first.
I heads about this book from a short clip of Rifqa's testimony on a talk show.

Incredible history of this amazing woman.
Unreal on how she persevered through her trials and fears and she has taught me to start taking my faith more seriously.

thank you Rifqa Bary, this has truly been memorising.

About to listen again.
