Terry’s Latest Book
As a Pentecostal preacher’s kid in small town Canada, Terry Law ran from the ministry and towards whatever adventure and trouble he could find, as fast and as hard as he could. As a man fully submitted to God? Well, some things never change. ‘Storm Chaser: The Terry Law Story’ chronicles the globe-trotting and oftentimes harrowing adventures of the World Compassion and Storm Chaser, LLC founder as he shares the Gospel, evades the KGB and Al Qaeda and fights for the religious liberty of Christians in some of the most dangerous places in the world.
The book encourages and calls believers to a life of obedience, action and evangelism in an increasingly divided and hostile world.
Why is this relevant?
- Rapidly escalating hostilities and events around the world directed at Christians, Christianity
- Millions of Christians increasingly unsure if/when/where/how to share their faith in Christ, due to cultural intolerance and concerns for their safety
- Domestic hostilities (Ferguson, MO for instance), agitators dividing the nation along racial, political, socioeconomic lines. Christians must engage, run towards life and culture’s storms armed with the Gospel. Many (most?) are hesitant.
- Growing secular/cultural movement to silence those of faith, eliminate God from the public square will require Christians to stand confidently with Christ in the center of the storm, not run for shelter
- Growing hesitancy towards international missions/travel due to safety concerns
- Increasing need to cultivate a confident, assertive generation of young believers, motivated towards global evangelism
