When Doors Close: My New Book for Those in Cross-Cultural Ministry

I am so pleased to share with you about the release of my latest book, When Doors Close: Changing Course in Missions Without Losing Your Way, published by Xulon Press.

Authors Nik and Ruth Ripken shared this about the book:

In When Doors Close, Carol Ghattas does us a wonderful service of looking at the blessings of closed doors. She honestly shares her story and experiences, and then draws us to reflect using penetrating questions that help us think through each part of the journey.

Nik and Ruth Ripken

Drawing from my thirty-plus years of experience in missions, my goal is to lead cross-cultural workers and others in ministry through a variety of doors one can face in service. Addressing each potential obstacle, I share insights on how to face them with grace, confidence, and ultimately with trust in the sovereignty of God.

When Doors Close is a book for those thinking about missions, already on the journey, or reflecting on ministry from the other side of a closed door. I believe it will prove a valuable resource as well for churches, sending organizations, and families. With questions included for each topic, When Doors Close can be used for both individuals and groups.

I know the effects sudden change can bring to life and ministry. My cross-cultural experience is not confined to one region, country, or people group, as I’ve worked among Laotians, West Africans, and Arabs. I trust you will see that I’ve lived what I write, reflected in this book as well in this blog site, my non-fiction work, and novels, which I wrote under the pen name Um Daoud. I am available for speaking on closed doors in service as well as on Islam, missions, and other topics. Connect with me for speaking engagements through my website, lifeinexile.net.

When Doors Close is available at xulonpress.com or other online book distributors.

I appreciate your prayers for this endeavor and for God to use this book to his glory.

Grace and Peace
