I’ve been reading ‘New Life’ in Serbia … the Novi Sad Christian Fellowship Story by Vera and Danny Kuranji.  Danny was part of my table-group at Cape Town 2010.  Some of the stories he shared spoke very powerfully of God’s care and miraculous power and the couple’s amazing faith.  When I asked Danny more about these he gave me a copy of their book.

The book charts their journey, leaving the former Yugoslavia for Canada, being called back to Serbia as missionaries and then living through the civil war, the genocide, and the NATO bombing.  In most of the chapters is a short testimony/faith story of someone who is part of the Novi Sad Christian Fellowship, these stories add a sense of reality and community to the biography.

  1. Steven:

    I’m not sure what answer he would give, but there’s a lot of content from Greg available online. Free podcasts on iTunes, a blog on http://www.str.org and the STR group on facebook. I would try and ask him directly on either facebook or the STR blog.


    1. Hi Steven, I’m away at the moment, but when I get back I’ll flick through my copy and see if I can find my copy of the manuscript and give my thoughts.

      In one sense though, I don’t think you can ever directly answer that question. I think what Greg provides is a way to not be trapped into that issue, which some people, especially as teenagers use as an excuse to believe rather than as a genuine debate. I’m not here to defend Greg’s book, I’ve never met the man, nor read any of his other books, but I’m not sure that was his intention.

  2. You mean teenagers use as an excuse not to believe in a god who loves them the fact that this god passes by on the other side while Christians are being murdered?

    I thought teenagers were dumb, but that is dumb even by their standards.
