A Trip Around the Sun: A Book Review

About The Book:

A challenge to choose adventure.
If you had your life to live over again, what would you do differently? New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson and his mentor, Richard Foth, will help you answer that question before it's too late. In a storytelling style, Mark and Dick challenge you to take more risks, dream bigger dreams, and quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. The accumulated wisdom from their combined 117 trips around the sun radiates from every heartfelt page.

Want to grab life and squeeze every ounce of adventure out of it? Be inspired by this unapologetic celebration of the life Jesus died to give us.

My Review: 

This book seems a bit of a departure from others I have read by author, Mark Batterson, but it was still a great read. Combining Biblical foundation with personal stories, both men teach the reader to embrace life and it's various adventure and live life in such a way that God is glorified. You will be inspired by each story and encouraged to get out there and live life. I know I was.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
