This was an incredible book, filled with adventure, scary times, and a man who felt that God was calling him to do and be more. I literally got goosebumps as I read the stories in this book, true stories of real adventures! The author is a man who is really “all in”. He was very honest about his struggles, about the challenges involved in ministry to unreached people (who have killed missionaries who tried to visit them in the past!), the way they chose to raise support, and how he (and his wife!) chose to do ministry overall. What an amazing story he has, and what an incredible witness to have it shared with us like that!
This book includes a section at the end with contact information for various organizations that serve in “dangerous” areas, as well as a list of the “most dangerous countries for Christians”. It’s a book that really makes you think outside the box of what normal ministry is like for us in U.S. and instead start to have a global vision – not just for the areas of the world that are like we are, but especially for the areas of the world that are nothing like our lives here. It’s a great book for those who are interested in missions, and also for those who have no interest in it – it makes missions come alive, and while I am well aware that not all missions work is done in dangerous parts of the world, I also know that this kind of book is a great way to see more and try to understand more of what goes on behind the scenes.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way required to write anything positive – the thoughts and opinions expressed here are completely my own.
