One Man's Extreme Faith Challenges Believers to Live More Radical Lives

From a warring tribal village in Africa to a Rob Zombie concert to a Guatemalan prison to a bombed out church in Sudan, Caleb Bislow shares firsthand stories of how God is working around the world. Some see Caleb's life and faith as extreme, but to him, sharing God's love in the most dangerous and despised places in the world is simply living a life of surrender.

With humbleness and even some humor, Caleb inspires readers to step out of their comfort zones and take godly risks wherever they are. Rounding out the book are appendixes of organizations to join or support and specific prayer needs around the world.

Its very refreshing to read a book about missions to the dark and dangerous places. Especially one that is not concerned about offending people that follow current fads and popular opinion whether Christian or non-christian. Highly recommend for those who feel God has called you to more than the easy and comfortable road of the American dream.

  DANGEROUS: Engaging The People And Places No One Else Will  In 2005 Caleb Bislow decided safety was overrated. Realizing there is nowhere on earth beyond God's love, He became what might be called an ''extreme missionary,'' traveling to some of the world's most dangerous places. From red-light districts in Asia to Guatemalan prisons to warring tribal villages in Africa. Caleb Whitnessed God's light break thru the darkness again and again. In this book Caleb shares his stories. Some are funny, Some are scary, Some are horrifying, But all of them are inspiring. He challenges readers to listen for God's voice and be ready to follow where he leads us. Along with the stories, he coaches the reader by sharing how he makes decisions and a priority checklist. He also gives practical advice as to how to get involved with each of the people groups he shares about in case one of them touches your heart. He cautions that to be a missonary, you do need to have some more formal training. I thought his training program for Unusual Soldiers was very interesting. It demonstrated that even the shy and timid are candidates to travel into dark, dangerous places to minister to others. This book is a good challenge for any christian who needs to get out of their comfort zone. While the book's radical approach may not be necessarily for me (Unless God has other plans), Believers will be reminded that this world is temporary and heaven and hell are eternal realities.  *Book has been provided courtesy of Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Since 2005, Bislow has ventured to the dark, dangerous, and despised places to share the gospel with others. He has traveled to various tribal villages in Africa, and even to a dangerous prison in Guatemala. In this book he shares his stories, some are scary, some are horrifying, some are funny, but all are inspiring. He challenges readers to listen for God’s voice and be ready to follow where He wants to lead us. I thought this was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I feel like it really gave me an idea of what it is like to be a missionary overseas in dangerous places, especially a glimpse into what it is like to be a missionary in places where few, if any missionaries have gone before. Bislow does a great job of tutoring readers on ways to share the gospel in ways that won’t offend others, but to find common ground and share the good news in a non-threatening way that comes from love. I thought his training program for Unusual Soldiers was very interesting as well. It demonstrated that even the shy and timid are candidates to travel into dark, dangerous, and despised places to minister to others. I think this is a book that would be enjoyed by anyone who has been a missionary, has been called to be a missionary, or is interested in what it is like to be a missionary. This book is geared toward adults as some of Bislow’s experiences are graphic and inappropriate for minor readers. I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
