5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate, captivating, bold, just plain good! September 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Never have I read a work on this topic that is written with such intimate familiarity with and full respect for both the Christian and Muslim faiths, while not shying away from the facts -- both the common ground and the source of conflict.

Just as in our real, modern world, the various characters in this riveting novel have their distinct and antithetical opinions on the great question, "What is that source of conflict, and how can we ameliorate it?!"

Read this book! It sheds light on a big part of the answer that may be quite enlightening to many Americans. Besides that, it's just plain good!

Resist the Devil is a captivating read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bit of work July 4, 2014

This is a very thought provoking read. Islamophobia has been around since long before 9/11, yet the surprise behind it is still intense. I thought the author did so well to first bring it up like it was another facet of casual conversation, then break it down for what it is, and explore it in a great way.
the fear and the differences behind conflicting values is a big theme of this and by no means was it just a light read. the author really delved right into a subject that was so well researched and obviously something I felt she knew a lot about. nothing was overplayed or understated, yet still there was drama and tension and some really great moments you will remember long after you finish reading it

5.0 out of 5 stars On breaking down barriers of hate... November 7, 2013
Format:Paperback
I have just finished Mary Jeddore Blakney's book "Resist the Devil" in one afternoon session of reading. It is a compelling story of intolerance which we often wish to ignore. The author sends a strong message to readers: do not accept at face value the ideas and opinions of those around you. The book's main character, Gina Gelasi,whose day job is helping refugees in a mid sized New England city, is conflicted by what she sees in her work and what is taught in her Fundamentalist church. Being a free thinking person, she decides explore the world of her clients and begins to question the dogma spread by her pastor and others in her church.

While the story is mainly told by Gina, the author also adds the voices of her pastor and a Turkish-American graduate student which gives the book more depth. Blakney does an excellent job fleshing out her characters. One almost can picture them in full while reading this novel. The plotting is very good as well and her description of autumn in New England is priceless.

I highly recommend this novel to anyone wanting some insight on the fragile nature of our diverse society.
