While serving in a remote Russian village, Jason Butler saw an orphan eating an orange peel. There was little else to eat. Grieving and angry, he began to ask himself what he could do. What he should do.
The only way to make a genuine difference, he concluded, was to move to the village and live among the orphans. Such a move would cost Jason's career, future, and life. So, like most of us would, he chose not to take the risk.
But unlike many of us, Jason's initial failure to trust God haunted him . . . and eventually changed his life.
In Dangerous Presence, Jason Butler tells how God eventually gave him a second chance to follow Jesus into the hard places and how he learned that the Christian who ministers among the broken and oppressed actually becomes a danger to the powers of oppression and injustice.
With an engaging, verbal style, Butler weaves biblical narrative and inspiring real-life stories of urban ministry into a prophetic call for Christians to become a dangerous presence to the forces of injustice in the cities of America and around the world.
