9Marks Reviews “Dispatches from the Front” book by Tim Keesee

Book Review by Alex Duke, Editorial Manager of 9Marks. “All around us, it seems, the sky is falling. America. Australia. The UK. Church attendance is down, cultural compasses are pointing east of Eden, and many so-called “Christian” veneers are vanishing. Once-nominal Christians are now comfortably non-Christian, while many once-amicable non-Christians are now comfortably anti-Christian. There are many ways we can respond to this. First, we can (and should) understand this news rightly, realizing that in every yarn of destruction there are threads of promise. Lord willing, the articles linked above and below are exercises in that. The sky isn’t falling, and as Christians we know it never will. Instead, we wait for the sky to open, our eyes straining for that white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. Second, we can (and should) look to history for encouragement, understanding that the church has seen such presumably dire straits before—and carried on with…

Persecution Update November 2014: Syria

The persecution of Christians has a long history in Syria. In the first century, Saul of Tarsus set out to crush the small Christian community in Damascus, but he was arrested by Heaven and converted to Christ. More recently, Syria was ranked #11 on the list of countries where Christians are persecuted for their faith. However, as a result of a three-year civil war in which Christians have been caught in the cross-hairs, Syria has now jumped to #3 on that list. The situation there is tantamount to ethnic cleansing, as hundreds of thousands of Christians have fled the country due to the violence perpetrated against them in the complex political environment of warring Islamic factions.  The caliphate of ISIS calls Christians “crusaders,” and considers them to be enemy #1. Believers caught by ISIS are given three options: convert to Islam, abandon their homes, or face execution. Please pray for…

Frontline Announces NEXT Program

What’s NEXT? NEXT is the short-term, cross-cultural missions program of Frontline Missions International. These field opportunities range from two months to two years and are designed to provide a realistic “next step” for those exploring long-term Gospel ministry in restricted-access countries. Because of the demands of the ministry and the sensitive nature of Gospel work in these settings, there are a limited number of positions, and the evaluation process is serious. Experienced field personnel will mentor and guide participants to a greater self-awareness of strengths and weaknesses. Immersion in practical missionary experiences is important to replace romanticism with the realism involved in working in an environment often hostile to the Gospel. NEXT will nurture Gospel-centered humility, a deep respect for indigenous brothers and sisters, and encourage bold, Spirit-enabled audacity in the Kingdom’s advance. 2015 Opportunities: NEXT: Africa is a 2-month field experience in North Africa and Ethiopia, taking place between mid-June…
