The Insanity of God: A True Story of Faith Resurrected


This book tells the story of an ordinary couple from rural Kentucky who thought they were signing up for an ordinary missions journey, but discovered it would be anything but that. After six years of tiresome work in Somalia and dealing with life where it looked like God had turned away, the couple had a crisis of faith and left Africa. They were left with questions like “Is God enough for the weariness of soul you experience under difficult circumstances?” “How does faith survive let alone flourish in a place like the Middle East?” “Can good truly overcome evil?” “How does one maintain hope when everything is dark around you?” You will connect with the spiritual and emotional journey of the Ripkens and their insightful and sobering stories. The Insanity of God serves as a powerful challenge for anyone who wants to know whether God truly is enough.
