‘Outrageous Courage’ is the true story of the courageous missionary, Tracy Evans, who has lived with radical obedience in war-torn countries, Communist nations, Muslim dominions and the poorest of slums.
Ever since she parked her motorcycle outside of Bethel Church, in Redding, California, Tracy has been impacting lives and risking it all for the gospel. ‘Outrageous Courage’ is her missionary story, told by her close friends and mentor Kris Vallotton and his son, Jason. Real stories like:
• When Tracy was shipwrecked then taken hostage by Gorilla Rebels on an Asian Island
• When Tracy was sipping tea with bullets whistling past in Mozambique
• When Tracy hosted seminars for important government officials
This short book reads more like an action movie, or a fast-paced novel than a biography. And amazingly it’s all real-life, it all actually happened! Many books claim to be life-changing, but few can live up to the description –it’s books like ‘Heavenly Man’, ‘The Hiding Place’, ‘God Smuggler’ & ‘Outrageous Courage’ that motivate genuine transformation in the reader.
Tracy Evans is a physician assistant who has served as a Christian medical missionary in 64 nations over the past 30 years. She established clinics and ministries in Muslim and Communist developing nations and in countries recovering from war or natural disasters. Currently she has a registered ministry, iReachAfrica, in postwar Mozambique.
Tracy’s ministry, iReachAfrica, has:
• built a baby clinic
• developed a feeding program
• built a hospice/recovery center that serves 900 orphan infants and HIV-positive children, plus their caregivers
• planted 21 churches
• built a preschool/kindergarten
• developed two prison ministries
• hosted leadership seminars for government officials and pastors
Kris Vallotton is the senior associate leader at Bethel Church in Redding, California, where he has served with Bill Johnson for three decades. He has written several books, including the bestselling ‘The Supernatural Ways of Royalty’ and ‘Heavy Rain’.
His prophetic insight and humorous delivery make him a much-sought-after international conference speaker, and his personal testimony of deliverance from fear and torment brings hope and freedom to thousands. He has appeared on numerous media outlets, including The 700 Club. Kris and his wife, Kathy, live in Redding, California.
Jason Vallotton is the author of ‘The Supernatural Power of Forgiveness’ and coauthor of ‘Moral Revolution’ with his dad, Kris Vallotton. A pastor at Bethel Church in Redding, California, he helps oversee the School of Supernatural Ministry. Jason currently serves on the board of Moral Revolution and is a sought-after counselor and speaker.
Outrageous Courage by Jason Vallotton; Kris Vallotton was published by Baker in February 2013 and is our 5999th best seller. The ISBN for Outrageous Courage is 9780800795542.
The book is written in the first person being based on interviews with Tracey and published with her full permission. In the book she bares her soul speaking of her mistakes, her struggles and her joys. What shines through is first how God can transform hardened sinners (which she was herself) and second what a live devoted to God can achieve. The book is rightly entitled Outrageous Courage as her actions are brave, sometimes reckless, but never selfish.
I could not agree with all her theology, or methods. I cannot endorse the way she speaks to God nor the way she says that God guides her through dreams and visions. I found those parts of the book a little disturbing. However if you are able to look beyond this then the book has something to teach us about sacrificial service to the Lord.

Contained in these pages is a story that will change your life. Consider yourself warned.
This is the story of one of the most courageous, radically obedient people we know.
Tracy Evans, a physician assistant, has treated rebel guerillas while captive on an Asian island. She's sipped tea in a Mozambican hut while bullets whistled through the grass walls. She's cared for 900 HIV-positive orphans.
In these pages you will find not only gripping, unembellished true stories of Tracy's exploits around the globe, but the more amazing account of what God can do with--and through--one person's raw faith and obedience.
Tracy's life has had an unbelievable impact on us, our families and our friends. We pray that you, too, will be inspired to radical obedience, faith adventures and wild trust in God’s power and purpose for your life.
Put on your seatbelt and let the journey begin!
Love in Christ,
Kris Vallotton Jason Vallotton
"This remarkable story will stir you on to greater depths of love and obedience."--HEIDI BAKER, Ph.D., founding director, Iris Global
"A faith-building book that contains more drama than a novel, except this one is true."--RANDY CLARK, founder and president, Global Awakening and the Apostolic Network of Global Awakening
“This is a book that makes you want to take immediate action to love more, serve more, and make a difference in the lives of others.” – Suzy_Q, Amazon.com review
“It is an easy book to read, but don’t let that fool you. If you allow the truths upon which Tracy endeavors to live her life to percolate down into your spirit and soul, you will never be the same.” – J.Bridges, Amazin.com review
30 years on the mission field will undoubtedly yield countless stories that would make the average Christian stumble over their driveway and head butt their privileged lifestyle. Yet many of us have aspirations to go on daring adventures into faraway lands with our Bibles and a suitcase of sun tan lotion to proclaim good news, love people and get stuck in.
If you’re one of these people, I’d recommend reading a missionary biography – like Tracy Evans book, ‘Outrageous Courage’. They give you a window into the life of a missionary, the immense cost and the worth-while reward. Not only will it open your eyes to the needs of our hurting and torn up world, it will prepare you for the eventuality that doing mission work will also hurt and rip you into pieces.
Tracy’s church history threads back to Bethel Church, in Redding, California. She rode her motorbike up to the church one day and got talking to Kris Vallotton, now one of the pastors. Bill Johnson, world-respected pastor and speaker, is close friends with Tracy and mentors her. It’s interesting to read how he opens the book in the preface:
“… there are few people in the world I fear as much as Tracy. I realize that may not sound biblical to some, or even healthy, yet the most honest expression of my heart is “I fear God in Tracy.” – taken from the Preface in ‘Outrageous Courage’, Bill Johnson.
You’re right Bill, that does seem strange. But he goes on to explain the reason for the title of this book – Outrageous Courage. Tracy Evans has supernatural courage, and that is very scary.
This book illustrates one big lesson for budding missionaries – the cost is great, but the rewards are greater. Tracy’s short book illustrates that genuine growth in Christ doesn’t happen in the safety of church, the classroom or morning devotionals. It happens when if God doesn’t intervene, you will fail, or even die.
Travelling to a war-torn country is nothing short of crazy, why would anyone with an ounce of sanity go? You need supernatural, outrageous courage. Inside Tracy’s book you read about all the experiences she has dealt with, the truma, the near-death experiences, the heart-ache – but you also tatse the rewards. Tracy is probably one of the strongest Christians alive! Spiritually, mentally and emotionally!
“Outrageous Courage will not disappoint. Read it hungry, and you will finish it hungrier. It does more than satisfy; it launches the reader on a quest—a partnership for something new.” – taken from the Preface in ‘Outrageous Courage’, Bill Johnson.
