Thought-provoking and response-evoking, Engaged in Love and War takes readers on a journey into the dangerous, endearing, and sacrificial responsibility of every believer. Jesus invites you to engage with him in both love and war – a relationship meant to change the world and endure forever.

Over five billion people live without Jesus and need urgent rescue. The time is short; the message is alive; the laborers are few. Now is the time for all believers to re-awaken their commitment to Jesus and join him with courage in his global purpose.

Engaged in Love and War will equip you to live with expanded understanding, passionate urgency, and strategic action. Engagement has never been so rewarding, or so challenging.


Engaged in Love and War will challenge you to grow deep in your love for Jesus so that you will go far into the world with risk-taking faith in the face of personal and global challenges. Through personal stories of the globally-engaging life that they are living, Leslie and Chad will help you, your family, your small group, and your church to impact the world for Jesus’ sake.

Engaged in Love and War is a hope-filled reminder that God is on the move to reclaim the world he loves and that his preferred method of getting things done is through us. The Segraves have done us all a big favor by sounding the alarm, pointing the way forward, and inspiring us to engage our world with courageous love, hope, and the gospel of Jesus.

Inspiring! Heart-piercing! Romantic! Courageous! Heart-rending and exhilarating stories illuminate how Christ-followers are fulfilling these biblical principles to bring the Gospel to all remaining Unreached People Groups (over 2 billion people who have not yet heard of Jesus). Do not read this book if you are unwilling to be challenged, inspired, disturbed, and soundly motivated.
