The Insanity of God: A True Story of Faith Resurrected PBBy: Nik Ripken, Gregg Lewis
Nik recalls that, God had always been so real to me, to Ruth, and to our boys. But was He enough, for the utter weariness of soul I experienced at that time, in that place, under those circumstances? It is a question that many have asked and one that, if answered, can lead us to a whole new world of faith.
How does faith survive, let alone flourish in a place like the Middle East? How can Good truly overcome such evil? How do you maintain hope when all is darkness around you? How can we say greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world when it may not be visibly true in that place at that time? How does anyone live an abundant, victorious Christian life in our world s toughest places? Can Christianity even work outside of Western, dressed-up, ordered nations? If so, how?
"The Insanity of God" tells a story a remarkable and unique story to be sure, yet at heart a very human story of the Ripkens own spiritual and emotional odyssey. The gripping, narrative account of a personal pilgrimage into some of the toughest places on earth, combined with sobering and insightful stories of the remarkable people of faith Nik and Ruth encountered on their journeys, will serve as a powerful course of revelation, growth, and challenge for anyone who wants to know whether God truly is enough."
