The Insanity of God: A True Story of Faith Resurrected – Film


The Insanity of God film is based on bestselling The Insanity of God book…. a true story of missionaries Nik and Ruth Ripken. After the death of their son, this ordinary couple journeys into the depths of the persecuted church, asking the question – IS JESUS WORTH IT?

How does faith survive, let alone flourish in the places of the world that are overcome with the darkness of sin, despair and hopelessness? Join the Ripkens as they tell the story of being taught by believers in persecution “how to follow Jesus, how to love Jesus, and how to walk with Him day by day even when it doesn’t make sense.”

The Church License DVD Edition gives your church the authorized public exhibition license to show the film for one year to your church and community. The DVD features the church license and event DVD.
