Full Product Description
In 1999 Simon went to Burundi with a team of evangelistic, which he pulled together to reach the youths of the streets. Several colleagues died and God honoured their efforts. Hundreds found faith and miracles became almost a daily occurrence.
Simon tells us in the book how he did not expect to survive, however God had other plans. A lady that Simon met called Lizzie was willing to share his tough life: they now have three children.
During his time in Burundi Simon was determined to construct the best conference centre there, which was built without incurring debts or paying bribes.
Simon states -
'The book combines prayer letters, diary entries and reflections from ten years in a war zone, from very humble beginnings to a massively fruitful ministry. It covers witchcraft, miracles, evangelism, Islam, orphans, street kids, aids, business for mission, and stories of triumphant faith in the midst of hideous suffering. It includes dark times and disillusionments. It's real, vulnerable and raw.'
Dangerously Alive by Simon Guillebaud was published by Lion Hudson in February 2011 and is our 750th best seller. The ISBN for Dangerously Alive is 9780857210111.

Dangerously AliveAlison Morgan, via The Good Book Stall
Simon and Lizzie Guillebaud are missionaries working with Scripture Union in Burundi, and this is Simon’s own account of his experiences there from 1998 to 2009, taken mostly from his diaries and emails to supporters. It’s an inspiring, energising personal story, in joy and in disaster alike, of what it feels like to be an ordinary human being serving God in a nation which at one point came out bottom in the world in an international survey of levels of happiness. It’s about Burundi and it’s about Simon and Lizzie – but it’s also about what it means to be a human being, what it means to face suffering with Jesus standing beside you, what it means to be alive and to know that it makes a difference that you are. ‘I hope your own plans, dreams and aims for this coming year are not so modest that they are achievable in your own strength’, Simon writes; and that about sums it up. Read it – and pray.
