Publisher's Description

Ron like many in Prison Fellowship International stepped out from his comfort zone to share the message that God cares even in places of conflict, pain and guilt. He seeks to present the message that Jesus had also gone through intense, severe, undeserved suffering yet did not retaliate. Read the amazing story of how these radical believers dared to make difference in a very broken world.

In his devotional, Radical Love in a Broken World, Ron Nikkel conveys the necessity of bringing light to the dark places and living radically for God. People around the globe are in hopeless and dismal situations, and need to hear the good news of God's grace and love. Nikkel believes that, as Christians, it is our duty to bring hope to these broken and needy souls. He feels it can be done through prayer, financial support, direct witnessing, and even with modern technology.

The importance of "being" the good news and avoiding judgments is where Nikkel begins. He continues by discussing hope and living justly, mercifully, and humbly (Micah 6:8). The book is a compilation of devotions that are sectioned into six parts according to specific themes. As the president of Prison Fellowship International, Nikkel has a lot of experience in loving folks who feel broken and abandoned. He has spent years listening to their stories.

Radical Love in a Broken World expounds upon the idea of Ephesians 5:1: "Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love." Christians should be active in loving others and caring for their needs. Nikkel says, "To be a Christian is to follow in the way of Jesus, learning to think and speak and act like Him, not literally, but in the radical way of loving and caring for people as He did." He dares us to make a difference in the lives of others and, as Christians, live visibly different from unbelievers.

The book is well-written and engaging and it explains many topics that would benefit Christians who desire to have a more hands-on approach to reaching the lost for Christ. It had a solid biblical focus, and it challenges the reader to act upon the Word. I recommend it to an adult Christian audience, either for private analysis or group study. - Tara Gnagy, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
