The Edge of Paradise by Martin de Lange Monarch Books, 2012
Martin de Lange was living a successful life in South Africa when he felt Gods call on his life to serve the people of Turkey. Uprooting his family, he travelled to a country where people ask intrusive questions. The Government watches every move and men think his wife is a prostitute.
Martin and his family become fluent in Turkish, set up a Bible Distribution network and pastor a growing fellowship, but harassment, loneliness and threats lead them to a crisis of faith and difficult choices.
This book is a must read for anyone interested in missions, especially in Muslim countries. It is written by a humble man who was obedient to God’s call on his life.
