Publisher's Description

The Insanity of God is the personal and lifelong journey of an ordinary couple from rural Kentucky who thought they were going on just your ordinary missionary pilgrimage, but discovered it would be anything but. After spending over six hard years doing relief work in Somalia, and experiencing life where it looked like God had turned away completely and He was clueless about the tragedies of life, the couple had a crisis of faith and left Africa asking God, "Does the gospel work anywhere when it is really a hard place?  It sure didn't work in Somalia.

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.

    It seems that we have become too comfortable in our lives. This book should awaken every heart and soul from their slumber and make them wonder why as Americans we have not suffered for Christ. Why we sit in our comfortable church pews and houses listening and reading our works of literature and Bibles. We should be stirring up our souls to find where Christ is at work. We should be finding our missions and do what Christ called us to do, seek and save the lost. This book makes you yearn for the faith of those persecuted. To want to find the same passion for the lost. It stirred my soul.

    Ripken writes of his own family's experience trying to help Somalis in their collapsed country and how that led to a lot of other problems. He decided to try to write a guide for new missionaries trying to work in hard situations like Somalia, and he got the idea of going to visit different regions of the world where Christians are persecuted and getting their input on how to be helped. Needless to say, he was blown away by the answers he got, and he ended up writing a very different book than what he had expected! YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK! It is vital for the life of the Church that we western Christians get a different view of the Christian life than what we currently have.
