Format: Paperback
"Penetrating the Stronghold of Islam" is the amazing story of Bob and Mariel Ward. In 1959 the Ward's responded to the Lord's "call" to join Wycliffe Bible Translators. After completing the intensive training requirements of Wycliffe's Summer Institute of Linguistics the Wards boarded an American Mail Line Freighter, destination Philippine Islands.

In careful detail Mariel Ward relates gripping stories of their forty-five years of ministry among the Muslim people on the Island of Mindanao. The unique challenge of translating the bible into the native language of any people group is difficult under the best of conditions. The Wards were faced with a major barrier; their people group the Maranao, were Muslims.

The Wards lives and the lives of their language assistants were threatened and a risk. Their story reads like a fast moving adventure novel, of kidnapping, murder, and intrigue. It might better be compared to an extension of the book of the Acts of the Apostles recorded in the New Testament. God's protection, provision, and guidance are shown as miraculous in timing and results. Mariel is a gifted communicator and a natural story teller.

The ongoing results of their ministry is being seen today in the lives of former Muslims who have become followers of Christ and are now reaching in their own communities with the message of the gospel.

In this day and age it is important to know all we can about Islam.
I confess I have been ignorant. This book is enlightening.

This book is eminently readable, and very educational for anyone who wants to get a first-hand look into ministry in the Southern Philippines. The stories shared by Bob and Mariel Ward will encourage your own faith in Christ!
