Summary

Summary

The Insanity of God is the personal and lifelong journey of an ordinary couple from rural Kentucky who thought they were going on just your ordinary missionary pilgrimage, but discovered it would be anything but. After spending over six hard years performing relief work in Somalia, and experiencing life where it looked like God had turned away completely, the couple had a crisis of faith and left Africa asking God, “Does the gospel work anywhere when it is really a hard place?” It sure didn’t work in Somalia.

How does faith survive—let alone flourish—in a place like the Middle East? How can good truly overcome such evil? How do you maintain hope when darkness surrounds you? How can we say “greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world” when it may not be visibly true in that place at that time? How does anyone live an abundant, victorious Christian life in our world’s toughest places? Can Christianity even work outside of Western, dressed-up, ordered nations?

The Insanity of God tells a story—a remarkable and unique story to be sure, yet at its heart a very human story—of the Ripkens’ own spiritual and emotional odyssey. The gripping narrative account of a personal pilgrimage into some of the toughest places on earth, combined with sobering and insightful stories of the remarkable people of faith Nik and Ruth encountered on their journeys, will serve as a powerful course of revelation, growth, and challenge for anyone who wants to know whether God truly is enough.

“A heartbreaking, faith-stretching, insider’s look at what it means to pick up your cross and follow Jesus.” Mark Driscoll, #1 New York Times bestselling author
