Hiding in the Light: Why I Risked Everything to Leave Islam and Follow Jesus 

 by Rifqa Bary

In 2009, a sixteen-year-old girl made national news when she ran away from her Ohio home, claiming that her father, an observant Muslim, had abused and threatened to kill her because of her Christian faith.

Today, that girl is a young woman who is ready to tell her story, despite threats and ongoing concerns for her safety. In Hiding in the Light, Rifqa Bary recounts in riveting detail the events leading up to her decision to leave home and how faith in Jesus grew in her heart, even as she kept it secret from her family.                                                                                                For more information, visit

Our own Florida Family Policy Council President John Stemberger represented Rifqa as her lawyer in Orlando when this high profile case went international and his participation is written about in the book.
