I had to get out of that house if I wanted to live. Was this worth risking everything for? Yes.”Rifqa Bary grew up in a devout Muslim home, obediently following her parents’ orders to practice the rituals of Islam. But God was calling her to freedom and love. He was calling her to true faith. He was calling her to give up everything.Leaving Islam for Christianity cost her more than she imaginedbut gave more than she could have dreamed.Hiding in the Light is the story of Rifqa’s remarkable spiritual journey from Islam to Christianity.
