The author of this book, a surfer/extreme sports athlete, I've seen on TV and what a great message. I was wondering what your thoughts were on this blurp about his book :

"Live the More You Were Made For! Amped for adventure, dulled by responsibilities? Always searching, never settling? Since God is creative, mysterious, and wild by nature, and you are created in His image, it's true that your need for the extreme was His idea. To live on the edge is a desire not meant to be squelched, though daily demands and responsibilities may have you fooled. Your life, whether it's painful, blissful, or a haphazard smorgasbord of everything in between, was intended by God to be a thrill - an intense pursuit of Him! Mike Barrett writes to every fidgety believer who's itching for more . Modern-day tales of adventure and risk meld with biblical stories of people who lived dangerously. Pinpoint what it is you're fighting for, and discover the adventure God made you to live."

great book - go for it!!!
its worth the price, the time, and your sacrifice !!!
I saw your post and I registered just so I would tell you!

Read it... it

I’m almost done with the book.
All I can say is. This book was written to encourage me, to give me more hope, and to understand my characteristics a bit better. I'm a soccer player, mountain biker, biker, and other sports as well…. and I know what is to take big risks in my life and in FAITH.
