Reading this book we are about to leave the country to step out into God's mission. Reading this has led us to evaluate exactly what we are walking into and if we are truly ready to be 'obedient'. This book is for those who equally want to go across the street and across the world, and for those who want to know best how to encourage those living cross culturally, wherever that may be.

HASH(0x8cafe2f4) out of 5 stars The Title Pretty Much Says It All.. 29 Jan. 2014
By Cathie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Insanity of Obedience is companion piece to Ripken's previous work, The Insanity of God. Although the two works cover some of the same ground, each book deserves a reading. The Ripken's felt called by God to go overseas as missionaries. When they responded to that call, they had no idea that they would eventually end up working in Somalia. In that lawless land, their faith took a major nose dive. Their losses were huge. Eventually they came home wounded emotionally and spiritually with a huge question mark hanging over their heads: can faith survive under intense persecution? They set out on a quest to find the answer to that question, eventually interviewing 600 Christians who had endured under some form of persecution. That is the subject of Ripken's first book. His second one, The Insanity of Obedience examines what it looks like to go out as sheep among wolves and gives story after story on how to carry out the Great Commission - even when obedience looks crazy from a human perspective.

HASH(0x8cc713a8) out of 5 stars Read this book 9 Feb. 2014
By Razan R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having read Nik Ripkens' other book, The insanity of God, and now this one I could not give it a higher recommendation. I am an avid reader but also a finicky reader. I hope that this book will both challenge and enlighten the next reader as it has done to me. It is by no means an easy read in regards to the way Nik enlightens the church on the concept and reality of those who are being persecuted and those who are put to death for the Lord. I do hope this book will be placed in all the libraries of all the churches worldwide as well as in every seminary. The church in the west needs to hear how other parts of the body of Christ are handling the choice they make, when they choose to follow The Lord Jesus Christ. May the Lord continue to challenge us as we grow in Him. Your brother in Christ, Albert R.

HASH(0x8cc35348) out of 5 stars Love the perspective of this book compared to The Insanity ... 3 Jan. 2015
By Larry E., Ninas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Love the perspective of this book compared to The Insanity of God. Rather than tell Nik's story, this book puts us in his mind as he grapples with the meaning of the Great Commission. No, it is not a re-hashing of the same material. This book has a different, more practical perspective.

HASH(0x8d73f00c) out of 5 stars The Great Commission Done Biblically 14 Dec. 2014
By Jamie L. Rachels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
You will be shocked how American Christianity is woefully lacking with practical survival skills in evangelism, faithfulness and spirituality. I found I am so far behind the brothers and sisters living in persecution, that I am horrified. I am even more horrified to see that our institionalized Christian ways are not good arenas for nurturing the growth of any of the above three areas. I don't know if the American church could survive vicious, unrelenting and continual persecution. We have much, much to learn from our persecuted brothers and sisters in Iran, Iraq, China, Russia, Somalia and other places. If you want to learn how to truly walk in the Spirit, read this book then fall on your knees to beg God to teach you how to follow Him.
