Publisher's Summary

There will be pain ahead, and trouble and problems that I won't be able to fix on my own.

But in them all, I know God will be there, calling me to look to him. Inviting me to take the next step toward his open arms.

And I will say yes.

And yes.

And yes.

Annahita Parsan was born into a Muslim family in Iran and grew up with the simple hope of one day finding a good husband, having children, and doing some good in the world. Married and a mother before she turned 18, Annahita found herself unexpectedly widowed and trapped for years in an abusive second marriage that she later fled - discovering instead a God who might love her.

Stranger No More is the remarkable true story of Annahita's path from oppression to the life-changing hope of Jesus. Fleeing Iran across the mountains into Turkey, she spent months in the terrifying Agri prison before a miraculous release and flight to Europe, where she and her two children knelt in a church and prayed, "God, from this day on we are Christians".

Filled with unthinkable circumstances, miraculous rescues, and the quietly constant voice of Jesus, Stranger No More leads listeners deep into the heart of God and draws them toward the same call that Annahita heeds today: using her past to save others from theirs. As the leader of two congregations in Sweden, Annahita has baptized hundreds of former Muslims since her own conversion, has seen firsthand the powerful ways God is at work among those who have left Islam behind, and is reminded every day that saying yes to God is always worth the risk.

Narrator's irritating voice ruined the story

the story was interesting and held my attention but I couldn't tolerate the narrator's voice - so irritating; monotone; like a snooze alarm pulsing, pulsing, pulsing, with no variation or enthusiasm. ruined the story.

True life is stranger than fiction

A difficult and painful story that eventually transforms into a redemptive message of hope. Thank you Annahita for sharing your heart and faith.

Great and harrowing story

I picked it up and could not put it down. What a wonderful testament to what Jesus can do in anyone life from any walk. The world would be so much better with more Anahita's

Amazing

I wish I could give 6 stars.
Amazing, really changes the way you view muslins and refugees. Not much in a way of teaching but what an incredible walk, in reflection you can see a drawing all the way.
You are a true blessing and I pray you will continue to walk in Farther Gods perfect love knowing he is your refuge & strength.
