Where did we get this idea that God wants us to be complacent? What if we were called to forfeit our comfortable lifestyles?
Meet the called: mountain climbers, deep-sea divers, fighter pilots, and jungle missionaries who follow God into the adventure of a lifetime. "Dangerous Faith" tells their dramatic true stories, revealing incredible truths only risk can inspire.
Each of these trailblazers rejects security to reach for a perilous place few Christ-followers dare. Their stories will thrill and amaze you. What they discover just might revolutionize your life-because He's calling you, too, into a life of risk.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Dangerous Faith: True Stories of Answering the Call to Adventure?

Challenging your faith  Jul 5, 2009
A DANGEROUS FAITH is an excellent book filled with faith-challenging short stories. Good for adults, teenagers; has thoughtful questions and comments at end of each chapter. Could be used for small Bible study.
Outstanding Book!  Oct 22, 2008
I didn't know what to expect when I picked up this book, but I quickly found myself drawn in by the stories and the messages they contained. There is nothing "small" about anything here: not the adventures, not the beautifully detailed, highly resonant descriptions, and certainly not the God they celebrate. Everything is larger than life, exactly like that same God. A real triumph for Jim Lund and Peb Jackson, reflecting lots of careful thought and serious research. I especially appreciated Mr. Lund's short, chapter-ending devotionals - he demonstrates not only a genuine gift for storytelling but also a corresponding sensitivity to the "hidden linkages" that tie together what man's nature would have us do and what God's nature would have us learn. Highly, highly recommended!
Love it and will share it!  Sep 4, 2008
I was delighted and humbled in reading the true life experiences of the numerous characters in this special new book. The experiences shared in almost all cases were very very touching and also strengthening in Faith. I was especially appreciative of the writings after the stories conveying the connection to Jesus and God. Remembering how God helps us, even in times of great dispair is a good message to bring forward. Truly not knowing at the time what blessings will come from the lesson, is protrayed here well.
I believe James Lund does an excellent job in story telling and bringing clear messages to us.
Terrible Book!  Jul 12, 2008
As a Christian, I was expecting a book that glorified Christ in times of crises, not a self-serving, ego-driven author whose opening chapter describes his slaugher of a Cape buffalo, an animal he went intentionally to Africa to kill. The guile of this man in saying that hunting for him "was never about wanting to vanquish another creature" is appalling, in light of the photo of himself toting his huge gun standing over his kill. To place himself as an example of "dangerous faith" alongside survivors of September 11th takes unmitigated gall. We live in times when Christian men need to step up to the plate and live lives that give glory to God, not feed our personal egos by killing His creatures.
great read  Jun 17, 2008
These are exciting and dramatic adventure stories, but even better, each story leaves you with a point to ponder about the connection between risk and faith. Highly recommended.
