Wise Sheep Among the Wolves

All Christian disciples have one thing in common: as they carry the gospel across the ocean and across the street, persecution will become the norm for those who choose to follow Jesus. How believers respond in the face of persecution reveals everything about their level of faith and obedience.

The Insanity of Obedience is a bold challenge to global discipleship. Nik Ripken exposes the danger of safe Christianity and calls readers to something greater. The Insanity of Obedience challenges Christians in the same, provocative way that Jesus did. This book dares you&-and prepares you&-to cross the street and the oceans with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Some of Jesus&' instructions sound uncomfortable and are potentially dangerous. We may be initially encouraged by His declaration, &"I am sending you out.&" But how are we to respond when He then tells us that He is sending us out &"like sheep among wolves"?

In light of the words of Jesus, how can modern day believers rest comfortably in the status quo? How can we embrace casual faith in light of the radical commands of Jesus which are anything but casual? Ripken brings decades of ministry experience in some of the most persecuted areas of the world to bear on our understanding of faith in Jesus. The Insanity of Obedience is a call to roll up your sleeves . . . and to follow and partner with Jesus in the toughest places on this planet.

"We have the high privilege of answering Jesus&' call to go," Ripken says.

a challenging book
5 stars By jin pian, Jan 31 2017
This is a challenging book that comes from the writer Nik Ripken's meeting with believers who went through persecution in different parts of the world. He learnt more through interviewing some of them and grew spiritually as well. The questions he raised after that are pertinent questions that dig deep into our conscience about obedience to the Lord. Ultimately is it fear or faith that moves us to obey the call to witness?
My faith has been strengthened from reading this book and I am encouraged to go on to witness for my Saviour and Lord with greater boldness. I strongly urge everyone who wants to serve the Lord to read this book. It will change your view about service and help sending churches to have a clearer perspective about mission.
