Christian Voice Mag May2012coverMost of us have had a pretty cushy life. But in his book Reckless Abandon David Sitton forces Christians to question whether God wants us to step outside of our comfort zones. Sitton is featured in a cover story in the May issue of Christian Voice Magazine. In the article David says, “In the time it takes to read these paragraphs, another Christian will be killed because of his or her faith in Jesus Christ. One hundred sixty thousand believers around the world will be slaughtered this year alone… simply because they love Jesus.”

In the article and in his book Reckless Abandon, David describes the butchering of Christian missionaries as horrifically beautiful. Horrible because of the torment they experience and stunningly beautiful in their Christ-likeness. As the writer for Christian Voice Magazine puts it, “be prepared to have your life challenged and changed” when you read David Sitton’s book.

Missionary Shares Gospel in Cannibalistic Areas

For immediate release: Is Jesus simply not worth the risk to many of us? In Reckless Abandon: A modern-day Gospel pioneer’s exploits among the most difficult to reach peoples, author David Sitton inspires and encourages readers through his own story of working in cannibalistic areas of Papua New Guinea to risk their lives for the gospel. “If we, as gospel ambassadors, are unwilling to suffer even as much as soldiers and firemen, could the reason be that we don’t treasure Christ enough or value the gospel enough to sacrifice significantly for its advancement into unreached regions?” asks Sitton in his new book.

Sitton was barely a man when he left surfing and partying to live in Papua New Guinea, a faraway, perilous land. Leaving Texas with a Bible, a suitcase and a surfboard, he took the gospel to people who had never heard the name of Jesus. For thirty-four years God has used him to help train missionaries, spread the gospel and establish dozens of churches in remote regions. Through this book, experience the amazing things God did as David recklessly abandoned his will to the will of God.

Sitton and his wife Tommie founded The Center for Pioneer Church Planting, which began in January, 2006. This missionary training program is dedicated to recruiting, training and launching pioneer church planters into the far-flung regions where Christ is still unknown. Published by Ambassador International, Reckless Abandon will be available online and in stores by mid-September. Learn more at
