Brad Smith leads us on a journey through the lives of the scourged. He does so much more than chronicle the struggle. He draws you into their life where you will experience the frustration and hopelessness of the battle and the joy of victory found in Christ Jesus.
From the pages of Scripture, Bradford Smith issues a surprising call, challenging God’s people to take action, to open their eyes to the affliction, to hear the cry of the orphan and to respond. No Higher Call will absolutely destroy any preconceived notions you may have. Shocking, in your face, gut-wrenching – this book will pierce your heart. Absolutely DO NOT read it unless you are prepared for the bitterest of truths, the sweetest of graces, and the reminder that…there is No Higher Call.
“What does God think about me killing all these people?” This one question haunted SSG Stephen Conway, from hell-on-earth in Ramadi, Iraq back to his home that became a battlefield. Brave Rifles takes you there, puts the gun in your hand, your finger on the trigger, then walks you through the Sacred Scriptures to apply the healing salve of God’s word to those stricken by the horrors of war. Bradford Smith’s third work, Brave Rifles: The Theology of War, handles this issue and more, exploring questions of eternal significance.
This is a powerful read in a small book. The subtitle hits the mark with its description of, "A Biblical Treatise on Adoption." The author poses a challenge to the reader to stop reading the book upfront if the reader does not want to be moved to action.
The call that sounds for the incredible need of emotionally and physically abandoned and orphaned children and one that when answered manifests the love of Christ.
This book is a must read for anyone affected in any way by addictions. So many of the situations in this book seem hopeless, but as Brad so clearly points out, Christ is the solution and the only hope of man. As long as there is breath, there is hope!
In Scourge, Brad offers us more than cold statistics or a cautionary tale. Instead, he offers us the solution - faith backed by action - to overcome this insidious problem Insightful and provocative, Scourge is a warning flag, guide post and rally to hope for all of us.
