Luke's Dispatches: Episode 4
Athens, Episode 4
DVD. 34 Minutes
Journey with us to Athens, where the same Gospel that Paul preached here in the first century is still mighty to save. The Athens of Paul's day was a city full of idols and empty philosophies. In our day—beyond the postcard scenes of the ancient Acropolis—Athens is a city roiled with a flood of desperately needy refugees, street violence, and trafficking in human misery. Into this maw of need, God has sent His people to serve with compassion and to speak the Gospel with clarity and courage—whether in a mosque or a crack house. 'Radical Rescue Work' opens a window into the lives of these faithful servants of the Risen Christ as they run to—not from—the cries in the darkness. 'Radical Rescue Work' is the fourth film in the Luke's Dispatches collection. These stories from cities and regions in the book of Acts show the power of the Gospel at work today in the places where it was first proclaimed. This Acts-based series is part of the Dispatches from the Front films, which for more than a decade have opened windows to Christ's Kingdom all over the world.
What Others Are Saying
"Beware of watching these Dispatches if you don't like being moved and inspired and shaken out of the ruts of your life. My wife and I were riveted in watching the frontline reports of God's work recorded in the Dispatches from the Front. This is the sort of information that builds faith in the present providence of God over his mission, and stirs up action for the sake of lost and hurting people near and far. I would love to see thousands of people mobilized as senders and goers for the sake of the glory of Christ and the relief of suffering on the frontiers, especially eternal suffering.'
- John Piper, author of Desiring God; Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis
