Winner of the 2002 Christianity Today Book Award! You're One Step Away from the Adventure of Your Life Deep within you lies the same faith and longing that sent Peter walking across the wind-swept Sea of Galilee toward Jesus. In what ways is the Lord telling you, as he did Peter, 'Come'? John Ortberg invites you to consider the incredible potential that awaits you outside your comfort zone. Out on the risky waters of faith, Jesus is waiting to meet you in ways that will change you forever, deepening your character and your trust in God. The experience is terrifying. It's thrilling beyond belief. It's everything you'd expect of someone worthy to be called Lord. The choice is yours to know him as only a water-walker can, aligning yourself with God's purpose for your life in the process. There's just one requirement: If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat.
This book is a great "life application" based upon Scripture, in helping you to stretch your faith in becoming all the God intends for you to be.

Another great Ortberg book!
As if any of his books wouldn't hit home. This one really made me stop and think and ponder on things I hadn't even thought about before about the scriptures. I love Johns writings and this wasn't a letdown ever. Its almost like the Nike saying-"Just do it!" You have to make the effort and take that first step, after that it gets alot easier. Thanks once again John.

Great Spiritual Reading
If you're looking for something to measure your spiritual growth, then this book is what you need. Once you begin reading you don't want to put it down. I started reading my friend's copy and wanted one for myself so I could mark passages and special lines. I LOVE IT!

The reason that I chose this book was because of the catchy title, but when you begin to read it there is so much more. This book deals with overcoming issues of life, such as fear. I felt that after reading this book, it helped ignite a diminishing fire. This book gets right down to where you are at in a realistic yet humorous way. Buy this book, you'll be glad that you did. I purchased the mini version for a friend and she was so glad that I did.

Great book for a Bible Study group. Author combines his knowledge with humor.
Publishers Weekly, 2001-01-15 Singer, speaker and author Walsh (Stories from the River of Mercy) tenderly gives voice to the unspeakable fears and sorrows that consume even the most stalwart Christians. Walsh advocates bravely confronting the demons of the unknown by opposing fears with faith in the unchanging, dependable character of a God who promises to meet every need. In the midst of fearful emotional and mental wandering, Walsh asserts, searching for reasons for life's tragedies can only compound one's miseries. She suggests a different track for achieving and maintaining courageous peace, by honestly exposing innate human frailties. Then, she says, Christians can surrender to God's plan as the jumping-off place to genuine fearless living. This book's titular premise to live fearlessly is discussed through three converging paths: truth-telling, fear-facing and soulful peace gained by relinquishment. Walsh challenges readers to let go of the illusion of control, embracing God's wisdom through uncertainty and finding freedom in a plan beyond understanding. Through her speaking role with the Women of Faith conferences, Walsh has conversed with many women who have suffered deep pain, and she skillfully recounts their poignant stories of freedom from fear. Walsh says that such stories challenge her to live life with a similar bold trust in God's sovereignty and provision. The author's generous and humorous personal experiences bring balance to an otherwise heavy subject. Walsh's call to a faith-based journey toward courage will inspire Christians to free themselves from fear. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
