After the death of her husband, Austia Donatelli picks up his mission to work with the Muslims in her community to help create unity and peace. Her ESL classes are not only to help immigrants assimilate and obtain jobs, but also to dispel myths about Christianity. When one of her students is shot after becoming a Christian, clearly an honor killing, Austia fears she has become the next target.
I couldn't put this book down! The story is well written, along with having a wonderful point, showing how prejudice Americans can be when using the media as their source of information. Though Austia has an excuse to hate the people her husband ministered too, she chooses to show them Christ love, becoming His hands and feet to the world.
It would be so easy to write a spoiler for this novel, since there are a lot of twists in the story! I shall try to limit what I say.:D It has been a while since I last read a book that I couldn't put down, so it was refreshing to read The Next Target! I hightly recommend this story, since it is riveting and has an excellent message for Christians to become more involved in the world around them.
