This book somehow reflects the sad events in my country as there were priests that were shot in the middle of Eucharistic celebration and in public. I feel like they were the modern believers stoned for their faith. So this book will be informative and inspiring as this review said.

Reynold Conger's native American culture based book Stoned for his Faith is all about staying true to yourself and being the best person you can be. Religion plays a huge role in a society and some people are accepting that others have different beliefs and some believe that there is only one way and everyone else is wrong. This is very important when it comes to a young girl who is trying to help her friend Amna who is a Pakistani Muslim, understand more about her Christian culture. When Amna's father finds a book about Christianity that Amna had forgotten in the car he becomes very angry with Amna. He becomes so angry toward Amna that he hits her and this terrified the poor young girl. It wasn't fair that Amna was being forced to believe something that she didn't want to. There's so many different beliefs about everything in this world and Amna is so young and hasn't experienced any of it yet. She should be able to decide what she will believe on based on her own life and the things that she has learned. This causes Amna to run away from home. Her father puts on a whole search party and wants to meet the author of the book he found in the car, to tell him he should stop preaching and publishing his book. How selfish can Amna's father be? There are many others out there that this book has helped and he wants to take that away from people? This book is inspirational and thrilling all at the same time, it encourages people to have the freedom to be there own person and believe in what they want.

thats it, there are times people do with good intention only for others to misunderstand. See the father of this innocent muslim girl he took everything to an almost undue extent here. Altho its a fiction but i see it really applies matters too. Let us always learn to keep our cool and to make no Fuss about nothing. Let love always prevail. We must know that religon is made for man and not otherwise but when we start to kill for religion we Abuse God's purpose of religion. Pls let us always note this, thanks for bringing this up.

The book seeks to explain the value of evangelization and spread of the good news. It states that Christianity can as well be spread to persons of different faith including Muslims.
