Format: Paperback
Tom Doyle's collection of stories of divine encounters and visitations among Muslims stands as a potent testimony to the power and love of God, introducing not only supernatural dreams and visions in the Muslim world, but also the supernatural love of God for all of His creation. The book contains careful reporting of documented cases of dreams and visions of Jesus in almost every nation of the Middle East. While it's obvious that Doyle has been a responsible and thorough reporter, the writing is active and follows a nonfiction novel format, recreating scenes, emotions, and action through numerous interviews and meticulous research. Using the stories of dreams and visions as a centerpiece, Doyle carefully constructs the context for each story to take place, illustrating the history of numerous nations, describing Islam and its worldview, and describing how house churches and Christianity functions in these parts of the world, making the book as essentially informative as it is inspiring and exciting.

Doyle comes from a significantly strong conservative perspective and often highlights the ugliest aspects of Islam. As a field worker and an experienced researcher, he is well entitled to this perspective and portrayal. What he presents is fact; my only apprehension is that the sometimes sensational tone of his prose when partnered with these facts may inspire more fear than he intends. In some odd way, I feel like this book should have been better. Some of these stories have been published before in Voice of the Martyrs newsletters etc. They are highly impacting and poignant, and the author's energetic portrayal of the events seeks to make the most of each story. There are times when the prose seems overactive and too much like fiction writing.

Format: Paperback
I have to say that this was one of those books that was almost impossible to put down. As I'd finish one chapter, I'd just have to read another, then another before taking a break. It is an exhilarating read, especially as a Christian pastor, seeing what God is doing to reach the Islamic people in these last days.

Tom Doyle is a missionary who has extensive experience in the Middle East, but he explains that when he first heard of the supernatural move of God taking place in the Middle East, he had difficulty believing the stories. But the stories kept coming... and coming. One former Islamic person after another told stories of how Jesus himself came to them in dreams or visions which opened the door for them to become a follower of Christ. A statement made in the book that sticks in my mind is this: "God showed me that my theology does not determine his actions." Powerful thought right there.
In this book the authors have compiled several stories as told by former Muslims who were introduced to Jesus through a dream or a vision. These are real stories, not exaggerations or fantasy.

One of the things I loved about the book is that these are all verified accounts. As Doyle writes in the book, "If we couldn't verify the experience, we left it out--no Christian fairy tales here." These are powerful stories that will not only lift your faith, they will amaze you as you come to see the breadth and length of God's loving effort to reach the Muslim people in countries where spreading the Gospel is strictly forbidden and punishable by death. Yet in this setting, Doyle writes that "More Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus today than ever before.

Tom Doyle's book Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? is a fascinating look at an interesting phenomenon happening in Islamic dominated countries largely in the Middle East in which many Muslims are coming to faith in Christ via encounters with Christ in dreams and visions. For purposes of understanding where my theological presuppositions lie in offering this review, I should state that I am a Cessationist. I don't believe that the miraculous gifts of the Spirit as described in 1 Corinthians 12-14 and elsewhere have continued their operation in the present day. Contrary to misrepresentations of this view by many charismatics, that does not mean the Cessationist position denies that God does miracles today. The position states that there are no longer miracle-workers specifically gifted with miraculous and revelatory gifts that were used to establish the foundation of the Church and Biblical canonicity and authority. Having said that, I don't necessarily agree with many Cessationists who have dismissed these reports of Muslim dreams and visions of Jesus.

Doyle's book appears largely based on personal interviews with numerous Muslim Background Believers (MBB's) from every major Muslim nation in the Middle East. He states that if he could not verify the details of the testimonies then he did not include them. In either case, the book is not a critical evaluation of these dreams and it is written to a non-critical audience. The book reads like popular novelistic type history books. I wish he had included more details for each story. There are a number of unanswered questions the stories raise. They are more like quick snapshots and many of them end abruptly which makes the book choppy.
