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 Christ as her architect. We’ve done that, too— both here and here.

Third, we can (and should) commit ourselves to prayer, both corporately and individually.

But that’s not all. We should also look to the present for encouragement. We should take time to learn that the church, around the world and in the unlikeliest of places, is far from vanishing; instead, as people are being called out of darkness and into the marvelous light of God, it’s shining brighter and brighter and brighter and brighter..."

Dispatches from the Front goes to North Africa to people upon whom Christ has long set His sovereign love. From the martyrs of the early church in Carthage to the bold believers across North Africa today, Gospel advance there has always been marked by fear and faith, joy and risk, life and death. Follow the trail of Christians who are sowing the Word of the Cross and reaping its joyful harvest! From the birthplace of Arab Spring and its all-out assault on Christians to unreached cities on the edge of the Sahara, Day of Battle, goes to the front line, where the Gospel is extending the boundaries of Christ’s Kingdom and faithful men and women are taking up David’s praise in Psalm 140, “O Lord, my Lord, the strength of my salvation, you have covered my head in the day of battle.”

Also included on this DVD is Dispatches: ProloguePrologue is Tim Keesee’s spiritual journey—a restless writer’s travels set against a backdrop of world events that led him to the greatest story of all—the story of the bloody-Sacrifice-turned-Risen-King Who is transforming lives from “every tribe and language and people and nation.” As Tim wrote, “I could never have imagined the world I wanted to explore was just a window to my King’s saving work!”

"You Probably Don't Even Know His Name"

Justin Taylor's post includes the release of Frontline's latest video entitled Dispatches: Prologue. This short film goes back to Tim Keesee's hometown to tell the back story of the DVD series and the book, Dispatches from the Front: Stories of Gospel Advance in the World's Difficult Places.

DFF Christmas Box picture (872x1024)

Dispatches from the Front is more than a collection of missions DVDs. These episodes are magnifying our God, building confidence in His Gospel and opening our eyes to the world. Someone recently wrote, “Dispatches gives me a renewed realization that Jesus really is King, that the Gospel really is power to change, and that Satan really is not winning. American believers need that badly.”

Now through January 15th, you can order the set of all 6 episodes for only $50—and if shipped within the US, the shipping is free! (Regular price is $65 plus $6 S/H.)

Buy a set for yourself or as a gift for someone on your Christmas list. If your church hasn’t seen them, consider getting a set for your church. Or if you need to buy individual episodes, each DVD is on sale for only $10--plus free shipping in the US (regular price is $15 plus $3 S/H).

New Release: The Power of His Rising

Over two billion people in the world have no access to the Gospel—no Bible, no church, no Christians, no hope. Since many of them live in countries closed to traditional missionaries, how will they hear the Good News? One way is that Christ is calling and equipping men and women with skills—professionals—to use their talents to reach people who are hard to get to. The Power of His Rising is an inside look at how this is unfolding in South Asia, where baristas and bakers, pilots and farmers are a force for the Gospel! It’s an amazing journey by land, sea and air—down crowded streets and remote rivers—to find light shining in darkness and persecuted believers singing because of Jesus! Dispatches from the Front opens yet another window to see Christ at work in the world through His endless life and relentless grace!

The 6th episode of the Dispatches from the Front series, set in South Asia, premieres this weekend! DVDs are available for purchase HERE beginning at 5 pm TODAY (Friday, April 19, 2013) at a special introductory rate of $10 (+S/H) from now through June 15th!
