Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Warren, wife of megachurch pastor and bestselling author Rick Warren (The Purpose-Driven Life), traces her transformation from housewife to international HIV/AIDS advocate. Moved by a news article about AIDS, Warren made a life-changing visit to Africa in 2003. In this book, she tells stories of the world's great tragedies (HIV/AIDS, the genocides in Rwanda and Cambodia, sex slavery, orphaned children and deep poverty) through the lens of her travels. Warren challenges readers to engage with devastating situations and surrender themselves to loving others-particularly those who may be considered outcasts-in the name of Christ. She describes being "gloriously ruined" by her close knowledge of these tragic situations, having previously been unaware or simply too busy raising a family to realize what was happening in the world. . The book lacks practical suggestions for readers, demonstrating an unexpected emphasis on Warren herself and the "miracle" God has made of her life. At times this comes across as self-serving, especially in the midst of so much tragedy. No doubt readers will be inspired by Warren's considerable passion for the hurting world, though it remains unclear exactly what to do about it. (Dec.)

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
“Kay Warren is touching the conscience of a nation.” -- John Ortberg, Author

“This beautiful book is an astonishing achievement, the words of a modern-day prophet. Many chapters are stand-alone classics. It’s one of the richest reads I’ve experienced. It breathes the Spirit of Jesus on every page---so powerful, so well written, and so profound.” -- Gary L. Thomas, Author

“Dangerous Surrender will inspire you, challenge you, humble you, make you uncomfortable, and show how God can use you to make a difference in the world.” -- Dennis Rainey, Author

“Kay’s book is an unmistakable sign of a new evangelicalism that’s closer to the poor---and anything but safe!” -- Shane Claiborne, Author

“Kay’s book forced me to clarify my calling and grapple with how much I’m willing to pay to follow it faithfully. I needed to read this.” -- Lynne Hybels, Author

“Kay Warren suffers from a case of severe compassion. That’s why I admire her. Only read this book if you want a softer heart.” -- Max Lucado, Associate Professor of Historical Theology

This book is very good. I am almost done and am very inspired by it. The book makes me want to make a difference in 'something' in the world, also. The review from Publishers Weekly said 'The book lacks practical suggestions for readers, demonstrating an unexpected emphasis on Warren herself and the 'miracle' God has made of her life.' Kay does offer how we can do it and I felt she had to tell her story to get the points across. At least it was effective for me!
