Overview

Who Said Following Jesus Was Supposed to Be Safe?

In 2005 Caleb Bislow decided safety was overrated. Realizing there is nowhere on earth beyond the reach of God's love, he became what might be called an "extreme missionary," traveling to some of the world's most dangerous and despised places. From warring tribal villages in Africa to red-light districts in Asia to Guatemalan prisons, Caleb witnessed God's light break through the darkness again and again.

Are you tired of playing it safe? Filled with unforgettable stories of what can happen when men and women completely surrender to God's lead, Dangerous will help you see how He can use each of us no matter where in the world we are.

Includes resources to help you get started on your own adventures.

"A book for aspiring heroes, about real heroes, by a quiet hero." Bear Grylls, British Adventurer and TV Star

"If it was not for Caleb living out the principles of this book, I probably would not be alive today. May God bless every person who reads this book."—Ruth, refugee and sole survivor of a rebel attack in the Democratic Republic of Congo

"What would it take to persuade you to abandon the security of your family and home and venture into unknown, perilous corners of the world? For Bislow, there was one answer: a burning desire to spread the gospel message where no one else would go. Dangerous is both a call to fearless evangelism and Bislow's personal testimony of God's provision on the mission field. This book aims specifically toward mobilizing and empowering youth. Bislow advocates a brand of extreme but biblical Christianity that encourages sacrificing everything for the sake of Christ. His international emphasis risks minimizing evangelistic opportunities within one's local community, but it is also an inspiring reminder to brave the world outside your comfort zone. The appendix connects readers with existing resources and ministries for individuals interested in pursuing international ministry, especially one in dark, dangerous, and despised places of the world."—Church Libraries

    Inspiring, Challenging, and Entertaining Read

    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  I


      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.

    Since 2005, Bislow has ventured to the dark, dangerous, and desp

    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.
