Endorsements

Kay Warren’s story of surrender to a deeper meaning demonstrates the way to make sense of the chaos and jubilation that characterize our existence. Through Kay’s human and humble submission, we learn, as Kay did when she decided to form the “Seriously Disturbed and Gloriously Ruined Club,” that we cannot afford to remain indifferent. - Her Excellency, JEANNETTE KAGAME, First Lady of Rwanda
“Dangerous Surrender should come with a warning label—like "flammable" or "explosive." Books this raw and real don't come along often, especially from highly visible leaders with global impact. Read it at your own risk—but take the risk!" - Bill Hybels, Courageous Leadership
“Kay Warren is touching the conscience of a nation.” - John Ortberg, The Life You’ve Always Wanted
“This beautiful book is an astonishing achievement, the words of a modern-day prophet. Many chapters are stand-alone classics. It’s one of the richest reads I’ve experienced. It breathes the Spirit of Jesus on every page—so powerful, so well written, and so profound.” - Gary Thomas, Authentic Faith
“Kay Warren suffers from a case of severe compassion. That’s why I admire her. Only read this book if you want a softer heart.” - Max Lucado, Facing Your Giants
“Dangerous Surrender will inspire you, challenge you, humble you, make you uncomfortable, and show how God can use you to make a difference in the world.” - Dennis Rainey, Growing a Spiritually Strong Family
“Kay’s book is an unmistakable sign of a new evangelicalism that’s closer to the poor—and anything but safe!” - Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution
“Kay’s book forced me to clarify my calling and grapple with how much I’m willing to pay to follow it faithfully. I needed to read this.” - Lynne Hybels, Nice Girls Don’t Change the World
Kay Warren, like it says in Robert Frost’s famous poem, “took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” - RICH STEARNS, president, World Vision U.S.
Kay’s intimate portrait of brokenness reminds us of what surrender to God ultimately produces — a person with God’s own heart for the hurting. It is a deeply moving story that a watching, suffering world needs to see in the church today. - WESS STAFFORD, president, Compassion International
Be careful. While reading this book, you may wrestle with an angel as Jacob did, and limp with joy in the continuing discovery of surrender and privilege in serving Jesus. - DEBORAH DORTZBACH, international director for HIV/AIDS programs, World Relief
Kay Warren is an unflagging lioness. More than simply a call to an awakening to global suffering, this book is a primer in Christlike obedience that anyone can consider. - STEVE HAAS, vice president, World Vision U.S.
If you think this is a book about how to be the wife of a successful minister, you’re wrong. It’s the story of someone who models the journey from self-interested religiosity to unconditionally loving Christ by embracing the lepers of our own age — the victims of HIV/AIDS. - TONY CAMPOLO, professor emeritus, Eastern University

Publisher's Weekly

Warren, wife of megachurch pastor and bestselling author Rick Warren (The Purpose-Driven Life), traces her transformation from housewife to international HIV/AIDS advocate. Moved by a news article about AIDS, Warren made a life-changing visit to Africa in 2003. In this book, she tells stories of the world's great tragedies (HIV/AIDS, the genocides in Rwanda and Cambodia, sex slavery, orphaned children and deep poverty) through the lens of her travels. Warren challenges readers to engage with devastating situations and surrender themselves to loving others—particularly those who may be considered outcasts—in the name of Christ. She describes being "gloriously ruined" by her close knowledge of these tragic situations, having previously been unaware or simply too busy raising a family to realize what was happening in the world. The book lacks practical suggestions for readers, demonstrating an unexpected emphasis on Warren herself and the "miracle" God has made of her life. At times this comes across as self-serving, especially in the midst of so much tragedy. No doubt readers will be inspired by Warren's considerable passion for the hurting world, though it remains unclear exactly what to do about it. (Dec.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
