    Perhaps that’s the greatest reason why He calls you to dangerous places: so that you will know His astonishing, sacrificial, life-restoring love.

    Soon after 9/11, Kate McCord left the corporate world and followed God to Afghanistan—sometimes into the reach of death. Alive but not unscathed, she has suffered the loss of many things: comfort, safety, even dear friends and fellow sojourners.

    But Kate realizes that those who go are not the only ones who suffer. Those who love those who go also suffer. This book is for them, too.

    Weaving together Scripture, her story, and stories of both those who go and those who send, Kate considers why God calls us to dangerous places and what it means for all involved.

    It means dependence. It means loss. It means a firmer hold on hope. It can mean death, trauma, and heavy sorrow. But it can also mean joy unimaginable. Through suffering, you come closer to the heart of God.

    Written with the weight of glory in the shadow of loss, Why God Calls Us to Dangerous Places will inspire you to count the cost—and pay it.
