Nik Ripken and his wife, Ruth, continue to work amongst believers in very high-risk countries. This documentary tells the story of how God led the Ripkens to Somalia naïvely expecting (while feeding thousands of people each day) to partner with Jesus to see light overcome darkness. Instead, after seven long, hard years they exited Somalia asking faith-shaking questions such as, “Is Jesus who he says He is? Does He have both the love and power needed to overcome the entrenched evil in places like Somalia? Or is Jesus just for the Western countries where resurrection has become so celebrated, but crucifixion has been forgotten?”
Accompanying the documentary, Nik Ripken's book, THE INSANITY OF GOD: A True Story Of Faith Resurrected, explains how he traveled to more than 72 countries and interviewed more than 600 believers who live, or have lived, in the midst of persecution. By reading this book, you can sit at the feet of the Ripkens and learn from them whether one can say in the places of severe persecution, “Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world."
