How far would your faith take you? Would it take you to another continent to help desperate people? Would you still be able to serve them after the sudden death of your child?
For Nik and Ruth Ripken the answer to all these questions is yes. For years the Ripken family has ministered in the Muslim world, primarily in the Middle East and North Africa. The Insanity of God tells the story of their remarkable journey. They've seen unspeakable evil in Somalia when four of their best friends and Christian converts were killed by radical Muslims, and when their sixteen-year-old son Timothy died suddenly from a severe asthma attack in Kenya. Despite these heartbreaking circumstances, their faith has survived as they learned from the persecuted people they came to serve. The Insanity of God asks many difficult questions. Questions that are especially difficult for the average American to come to terms with. Yet the Ripken family, along with millions of other persecuted Christians around the world have decided to follow Christ regardless of the personal danger, because they know who Jesus was and is. And that makes all the difference.
