Matt Dury grew up in Nebraska, then turned his back on the cornfields. Now he teaches in Dubai at an English as a Second Language school. He's passionately in love with Lola, a Filipino nurse at the Adventist hospital. There's something different about Lola--with her lovely dark-almond eyes, her imperturbable faith in God, and her constant refrain whenever he proposed marriage: "Let's wait."
Lola, you see, wants to marry an Adventist--someone who shares her values and beliefs. "Please, God, help me know what to do about Matt," she sobs.
Janda is a Muslim boy of 10. First he stole their hearts, then thugs stole him--and made him a camel jockey. In hot pursuit, Matt heads for exotic Dubai. Before it's over, they would all experience a new intensity in prayer.
As Matt disentangles the dark threads of his past against an international canvas of suspense and intrigue, he struggles with what the Bible teaches about death and the Sabbath. In this richly textured tale of spiritual coming of age in a Muslim country, you will learn what Islam and Christianity share in common and get acquainted with contemporary Christian life in a Gulf Arab state.
