Would you follow Jesus, even when it doesn't make sense?
That's the question that is asked of Nik and Ruth Ripken as, out of the pain of losing their only son, they choose to follow Christ into the darkest, most dangerous places on the planet. To the very heart of the persecuted Church.
There they see suffering, pain, and near-hopelessness. They visit Somalia, one of the most troubled Nations on the Planet, and are left wondering if the Gospel can ever prevail there. They see conflicts in the Middle-East, despair in parts of Africa, and are left with the profound doubt of wondering if Christianity is even possible in these neglected nations. How can faith survive in such circumstances?
It seems impossible.
But, through their story, the lives of believers from across the globe prove them wrong. Tales of perseverance, of flourishing faith, and of resilience for Christ prove the Ripken's doubts to wholly wrong, time after time.
They discover a God that will never make sense, that defies odd, and that grows in the places where they thought were barren. Based on their bestselling book of the same name, The Insanity of God doesn't just ask 'Is Jesus Worth It?'
