Will you follow Jesus even when it doesn’t make sense?


Nik Ripken has walked with followers of Christ from the hills of Kentucky to war-torn Somalia.  Faced with suffering in his family, the realities of war around him, and the systemic destruction of the work he felt called to do, the evil was at times overwhelming.  How could God be good, when life was so dark?  How could Christ reign victorious on a day when the number of martyrs included some of Nik’s best friends?   Is there really power in Christ no matter the circumstance?


The ashes of Somalia led the Ripkens to travel around the world to listen to the stories of more than 600 believers in over 60 countries.  These were men and women who had learned to be tough enough and prepared enough to walk with Jesus through environments of persecution.  These believers shout along with the testimony of those in Scripture that Jesus is worth it--He is worth my life, the life of my spouse, and the lives of my children.


How does faith survive, let along flourish in the places of life that are overcome with the darkness of sin, despair, and hopelessness?  Join Nik as he tells the story of being taught by believers in persecution “how to follow Jesus, how to love Jesus, and how to walk with Him day by day.”  We may think that we would rather live like the world than to do the “insane” things that Jesus asks of us.  But are we really more joyful than those walking the darkest, craziest paths?  What does it mean if we are not?  Is God truly enough?  Have your questions answered in The Insanity of God.


Nik Ripken is the world’s leading expert on the persecuted church in Muslim contexts.  He is a missions’ veteran of 25 years, having served primarily in North Africa and the Middle East.  He is the author of many articles and, along with his wife, has done extensive research on the persecuted church, and on Muslim background believers, in approximately 60 countries.
