"Peterson is a thoughtful writer whose honest prose will appeal to any readers wanting to align themselves with Gods will, whether in a foreign land or at home."
"Amy Peterson's wise and provocative words should be required reading for any Christian about to immerse herself in another culture or community."
"Amy Peterson's writing is vulnerable and beautiful, and she is a good companion for Christians in search of an earthy, ordinary faith."
"Amy Peterson is one of my favorite writers."
"Peterson's thoughtful and vulnerable exploration of her missionary experiences urges us to peel away the layers. To learn, finally, what it is to rest in our own Belovedness."
"Amys is a story of a life broken open and remade: imperfectly, beautifully. We need more brave stories like hers."
"There is a disarming determination in these pages not to let Christian faith go until its blessings are known and felt."
"Dangerous Territory is a must-read for anyone, like myself, who longs to be a part of the global story of Gods coming kingdom. Here, Peterson unpacks the layers of the traditional missionary narrative in ways that are subversive, profound, and ultimately hopeful."
"Do not read this book if you are content with safe categories, messiah complexes, or serving God as a way to serve yourself. Do read this book if you want to wrestle with a God who works outside our boxes and humbles us in the process. By sharing so freely from her own life, Peterson gives us the opportunity to invite His work into ours. Simultaneously devastating and comforting, Dangerous Territory calls us beyond our simplistic notions of commitment to God to a place of full surrender."
"Amy Petersons Dangerous Territory is too honest to indulge the hero façade and too authentic to avoid the unresolved questions. But real stories are like that. If you want to read a real story, a well-told story, a story where shallow Christian missionary triumphalism is replaced by the messy, unresolved, and sometimes tragic life of faith, then read this story. In Dangerous Territory we set aside our adolescent faith with its tidy answers and clean endings, and we take up an adult faith; a faith with real risk, real loss, real questions, and Gods presence on the other side of pain."
"In this book Amy Peterson opens up her messy, ordinary, and beautiful life to let us see what it meant for her to go from a young woman wrapped in the mythology of missionary heroes, through dark days of disillusionment, into a deeper, more grounded understanding of faith and calling."
