Dangerous: Engaging the People and Places No One Else Will [Book In Review]
As a reader, I was instantly drawn to the author because he’s from a rural town in Nebraska, and by all appearances is just a normal guy with the courage to do anything. Caleb Bislow grew up with an adventurous father, and a wide open prairie to explore and expand his adventure. He writes this autobiography of sorts to detail how his life became so wild. He takes risks for the Gospel that no one else is willing to take by traveling to places and people groups that are ‘dangerous.’ At the end of the book, you will feel as if you know Caleb well.
The main content of this book focuses on his most thrilling testimonies of sharing the Gospel. Peppered throughout the stories though, he coaches the reader by sharing how he makes decisions and a priority checklist. He also gives practical advice as to how to get involved with each of the people groups he shares about just in case one of them grips your heart. He cautions that to be a missionary, you do need to have some more formal training, but also encourages the reader that he is an ordinary guy obeying the directions from the Holy Spirit and that anyone can share the Gospel of Jesus in the off limit places.
I personally love reading biographies and so this book fit right into that genre. I would recommend it to anyone over the age of 18.
I was given a free copy of this book for my objective review.
