I got this book from a friend. Within 8 months 2 women I have known for yrs converted to Islam and Hasidic Judaism. Their decisions made no sense to me and the changes wrought in their lives were very similar: stricter moral codes, more modest clothing, food restrictions, different holidays and rituals, etc. Both of the women do not celebrate any Christian-origin holidays or "nationalistic" things like the 4th of July. I am familiar with all three Judeo-Christian-Islamic faiths and do not believe in any of them,so it helped to get an inside view of why a woman would choose such a radical path. One thing I noticed is that several of the women expressed dismay that their families were worried that they were going to go to hell for rejecting Jesus and spoke about "live and let live". Unless I am mistaken, Islam teaches that those who hear about Islam and reject it go to hell, so should their own children grow up and leave Islam they may have some of the same problems their Christian parents had with them. After I finished the book I realized that the only way for people to get along with religions which they do not accept is to ask some questions, be polite and then shut up about it. People are going to do what they think is right and if you get the idea that you're doing what GOD says is right, then it makes the decision that much stronger.
