Dispatches from the Front is a thoughtful, moving, understated, and ultimately convicting narrative depicting the work of the gospel in some of the most challenging corners of the world. It tells of brothers and sisters in Christ who in God's grace display faithfulness and transcendent joy, unflagging zeal to share the gospel, and an unfettered allegiance to King Jesus. To read of the kingdom advance in the teeth of challenges is to learn humility and rekindle contrition, faith, and intercessory prayer.
-D. A. Carson,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
The Lord promised to call to himself people from every nation, tribe, and tongue, and few things thrill me more than seeing and hearing how he is fulfilling that promise. Tim Keesee has a remarkable ministry in traveling the world to seek out what the Lord is doing and to make these things known. Dispatches from the Front allows you to travel with him, and if you go along, you will be blessed, you will be encouraged, and you will praise God.
We have been far more successful at westernizing the world than gospelizing it. Tim's book is a kind but firm challenge to a church that has exchanged the great commission for a smaller, more comfortable version. Each chapter is a serious wake-up call for churches and Christians to return to an authentic, New Testament mission.
President, Central Theological Seminary
This book is intriguing, well-written, and culturally informative, and it introduces us to fellow-believers who otherwise would remain unknown. Read it for those reasons. But read it first and foremost because it reveals anew the first-century Christ, who is now remaking diverse people of this twenty-first century into the elite citizens of his everlasting kingdom.
-David J. Hesselgrave,
Emeritus Professor of Mission, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
Riveting. Tim writes with artistry and passion about gospel needs and gospel triumphs. He labors in the worlds toughest places and, through his journals, takes us along for the ride. Read this book. Rejoice. Weep. Pray. Then find a way to join those serving on the front lines for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Pastor, Killian Hill Baptist Church, Lilburn, Georgia
Dispatches from the Front is a powerful book. It spreads a vision for God's mission to call a people for his name and provides incredible reminders of the gospel's power. Read it and your heart will be stirred to praise God for his mercy among the nations and to pray for its continued spread.
