Today on Brave Men one of America’s eminent storytellers, best-selling author Charles Martin, jumps into the middle of the story of Jesus and his disciples. From his acclaimed book, They Turned The World Upside Down: A Storyteller’s Journey With Those Who Dared To Follow Jesus, host Paul Cole and Charles walk through the dusty roads of the early church bringing to life the struggles, triumphs and challenges of carrying the message of Jesus to the world.
In the first century, a believer didn’t just mean someone who heard and agreed with Jesus; it meant someone who acted on that belief. And when the outside world saw the faith of these new believers, they declared “they turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). This is a picture of brave men.
Charles Martin is a New York Times best-selling author of fifteen novels: They Turned The World Upside Down: A Storyteller’s Journey With Those Who Dared To Follow Jesus, The Water Keeper, What If It's True?: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus, and The Mountain Between Us, to name a few. The Mountain Between Us was made into a major motion picture by 20th Century Fox starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. Charles currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife and three boys. He spends his free time bow hunting, working out and doing Tae Kwon Do.
