  • Insanity Of Sacrifice


    Bestselling author Nik Ripken (The Insanity of God; The Insanity of Obedience) leads readers through ninety days of meditating on the central place sacrifice holds in Christianity, both in God’s actions and in our response.

    God’s ways are unusual. They are unexpected. Many of us know that and have experienced it. We certainly have read about it in the Bible. Still, we are often startled when we experience God’s unusual ways firsthand. The methods God uses to accomplish His purposes are often difficult for us to understand.

    Nowhere do we see that more clearly than in the role sacrifice plays in the activity of God.
    In this ninety-day devotional, Nik Ripken leads readers to consider the centrality of sacrifice in God’s plan. We see this supremely in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for the sins of the world. But readers will also come to see the centrality of sacrifice in their response to the gospel.

  • Insanity Of Obedience


    Wise Sheep Among the Wolves

    All Christian disciples have one thing in common: as they carry the gospel across the ocean and across the street, persecution will become the norm for those who choose to follow Jesus. How believers respond in the face of persecution reveals everything about their level of faith and obedience.The Insanity of Obedience is a bold challenge to global discipleship. Nik Ripken exposes the danger of safe Christianity and calls readers to something greater. The Insanity of Obedience challenges Christians in the same, provocative way that Jesus did. This book dares you-and prepares you-to cross the street and the oceans with the Good News of Jesus Christ.

    Some of Jesus’ instructions sound uncomfortable and are potentially dangerous. We may be initially encouraged by His declaration, “I am sending you out.” But how are we to respond when He then tells us that He is sending us out “like sheep among wolves”?

    In light of the words of Jesus, how can modern day believers rest comfortably in the status quo? How can we embrace casual faith in light of the radical commands of Jesus which are anything but casual? Ripken brings decades of ministry experience in some of the most persecuted areas of the world to bear on our understanding of faith in Jesus. The Insanity of Obedience is a call to roll up your sleeves . . . and to follow and partner with Jesus in the toughest places on this planet.

    “We have the high privilege of answering Jesus’ call to go,” Ripken says. “But let us be clear about this: we go on His terms, not ours. If we go at all, we go as sheep among wolves. Jesus gives us Himself. And He gives us the tools necessary for those who dare to journey with Him.
