Caleb Bislow goes into some of the most dangerous places in the world, sharing the light of the gospel and bringing hope to thousands. From war-torn Africa, to red-light districts in Asia, Caleb is helping to bring people to Christ in places where most missionaries wouldn’t dare to go, as well as training others to do the same, giving them the title of “Unusual Soldiers”.
Filled with incredibles stories of those whose lives were touched, and forever changed, by submitting themselves completely to the call of Christ to “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation”, this book is moving and deeply inspiring.
Dangerous is about facing your fears and learning to trust in God completely, allowing Him unfettered access to ourselves to complete His perfect will in our lives, and using us to make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Though traveling the world to share the gospel may not seem like the right fit for every one, Bislow explains that you don’t have to go to the ends of the earth to find people who haven’t been reached. Many places here in America are considered “taboo” or just plain too uncomfortable to talk about Christ, but he encourages us, if we feel God’s calling, to visit these places, unafraid, and share the love of Christ.
For those who feel the call to help Bislow in his efforts, the book includes lists of organizations that deal with ministry in various places throughout the world, with a list of the 10 most religiously oppressed countries, as well as ministries that deal with specific groups of people such as prisoners and victims of abuse and trafficking.
I cannot imagine the amount of courage it would take to do what Caleb Bislow, as well as the teams that he trains, do on a regular basis. The terror of stepping into the unknown, in regions of the world known for physical violence and human suffering, would be enough to deter even the most determined of people, and yet these people do it with grace and love, knowing that only the gospel of Christ can bring lasting change to these regions.
An incredibly inspiring book that will leave you hungry to do more for the Lord. Highly recommend!
