What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

“Beware of Dispatches from the Front if you don’t like being moved and inspired and shaken out of the ruts of your life. These are kingdom stories that build faith in the present providence of God over his mission and stir up action for the sake of lost and hurting people near and far. I would love to see thousands of people mobilized as senders and goers for the sake of the glory of Christ and the relief of suffering on the frontiers, especially eternal suffering.”
John Piper, Founder, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College and Seminary

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, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“Like a war correspondent, Tim Keesee has brought us to the front—to walk down bomb-shattered streets, along jungle paths, and into the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Their Christlike courage in living as ‘lambs among wolves’ is a striking witness to the power of the gospel.”
Sen. Jim DeMint, President, The Heritage Foundation

“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.”
Tim Challies, blogger, Challies.com; author, The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment

Dispatches from the Front is a fascinating look at how the gospel is penetrating some of the world’s neediest places. These are regions where all the worst agonies of human life are multiplied and magnified relentlessly by war, extreme poverty, sex trafficking, drug dealing, false religion, and disease . . . but your spirit will be encouraged by the triumphant power of Christ.”
Phil Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You

“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.”
Sam Horn, 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 world’s 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.”
Chris Anderson, 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.”
David M. Doran, President, Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary
