Martin de Lange is happily married, enjoying his job, living in South Africa. But stirred with passion for the spiritually lost in Turkey, he uproots his little family and heads north. Turkey is utterly different, a land where people ask obtrusive questions, the government watches every move and men think his wife is a prostitute. Over 15 years Martin gradually becomes fluent in Turkish, setting up Bible distribution networks and pastoring a growing fellowship. Marriage difficulties, police harassment and loneliness at times lead the de Langes to crises of faith. As threats mount, Martin is faced with a difficult choice. Head for the safety of home, or live where God has led them? Finally they are blacklisted and forced to leave. Six months later, three of the men Martin recruited are horribly murdered by extremists.

About the Author:

A former police officer in South Africa, Martin and his wife were for many years missionaries in Turkey under the auspices of Operation Mobilisation.

Review:

This book is a fascinating and insightful read. -- Isabel Reyes * JOY * `We urgently need books about Turkey, one of the largest most unreached nations in the world. Martin's book deserves your attention. Please get extra copies to give to your friends. Use it to mobilize prayer and action.' -- George Verwer, Operation Mobilisation `Rarely has a story captivated me so quickly and so much. A compelling narrative.' -- Nick Chatrath, author of Reaching Muslims: A one-stop guide for Christians "I'm always challenged by people who loved the truth enough to live it, who `did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death'. These brothers did that, and their story needs to be heard." -- Simon Guillebaud, author of Dangerously Alive `A story of raw honesty, mixed with humility. Well chronicled, well written and easy to read.' -- Peter Tarantal, Chairman of Wensa (World Evangelization Network of South Africa) `The moving account of the love and passion of two modern-day missionaries willing to give their lives in a foreign country. A captivating real-life story.' -- Isak Burger, President of the Apostolic Faith Mission of SA It is refreshingly fast moving and clear about the costs such work involves, and a challenge to my own superficiality about God, and deep-seated materialism. As an inspiration for those considering sacrificially following Jesus today and wanting to be evangelistically direct, it would take some beating. -- John Holden * The Reader *
