Face to Face with Jesus
A Former Muslim's Extraordinary Journey to Heaven and Encounter with the God of Love
By Samaa Habib and Bodie Thoene

About the Book

It starts as a story ripped from the headlines of the war-torn Middle East.

An extremist faction of Islam bombs a church during a service. The one door in the back isn't big enough for five hundred people trying to escape.

Some are killed.

But after the chaos and fire and smoke, one young woman comes back to life.

In this thrilling true tale, death does not have the final word. From the first time Samaa heard the Lord Jesus calling her out of Islam into faith in Him, till she met Him face to face in heaven, her life is marked by God's supernatural love and power. Full of hope and encouragement, and overflowing with Jesus' love, her riveting account reveals the power of God to break through any circumstance -- and is a moving reminder that, in a place beyond what we can imagine, we have a Savior waiting to welcome us face to face.
