Violence against Christ-followers is increasing globally. This book is a pastoral and practical resource for workers who advance the gospel in the world’s most dangerous places. Hampton integrates exegesis and psychology to explain how humans respond to fear and how the Holy Spirit enables us to make a different choice than our normal reaction to opposition. Having ministered in the harsh realities of Afghanistan, the author posits, by experience, that Jesus is worthy of whatever pain you go through, and whatever loss you experience. Good, solid advice on how to deal with danger and opposition.
