Book Review: “Dangerous” by Caleb Bislow

Dangerous: Engaging the People and Places No One Else Will

Being a missionary overseas often means putting your life at risk in one way or another. It isn’t easy, and it definitely isn’t for the weak. But we often have pictures in our heads of missionaries living an idyllic life, far from harm, and having great success in their ministries all the time. While that might be true in some cases, this book focuses on the realities of ministering in the tough places.

Dangerous by Caleb Bislow is fascinating and filled with adventure. Caleb is no ordinary missionary – he travels to the most extreme places following the Lord’s leading, and his stories will keep you engaged!

God is using Caleb in extraordinary ways to reach people who might not be reached otherwise. I loved this quote:

“Jesus didn’t let locked doors keep him from being with his disciples, so let’s not let locked doors keep us from outsiders. Sometimes the best opportunities are just beyond the “locked doors” in front of us.”
(pg. 140)

This book definitely challenged me because, like most people, I like being comfortable and playing it safe. But there is also part of me that longs for adventure, that longs to go to distant lands to tell people about Jesus even if it is dangerous.

Read this book and allow God to use it to challenge you. This isn’t everyone’s calling, but we can all learn from Caleb’s mission and testimony and apply it to our lives.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
