Publisher's Description

Church can be a great place to learn spiritual lessons, but sometimes you just have to get up and get outside to experience the grandeur of God. In Majestic and Wild, pastor, writer, and avid outdoorsman Murray Pura weaves his real-life adventures with spiritual inspiration and life lessons, capturing the majestic and wild creation that God has set before us all. From animal encounters to wildfires to raging rapids to Daniel Boone hunts and buffalo stampedes, the stories range from dramatic and suspenseful to light-hearted and whimsical. Each story is woven with spiritual lessons not easily learned from sitting in a pew.

A great gift for wives to give to their husbands and kids to give to their dads, Majestic and Wild will entertain and inspire anyone with a sense of adventure and a love for the great outdoors.

    Majestic and Wild is a great adventurous experience for 31 days. I must admit I could not wait that long to read all those great stories. The author drew me in from the first story and I didn't want to stop reading. For each day the author is offering one or two bible verses and is sharing one of his experiences in the wild—adventures in the forest or field, on the river, or encounters with wild animals. These experiences have taught him rich spiritual lessons—lessons that will also teach the reader more about God and His creation.

    The vivid descriptions will make you feel like you are watching over the author's shoulder. It will give you the feeling you are visiting the wild and experiencing what the author saw. It takes a talented writer to make you feel like you are living the adventures in a book—to make you see them in your mind's eye. Murray Pura is that writer who is blessed with this special gift of art in writing. His writing is like a cool stream or a gentle wind—so refreshing.

    This book awakened many emotions—happiness to see God's glory, sadness to see the wickedness of men, it brought a smile to my face to read some humorous comments between the lines, and I have also wiped away a tear at some emotional parts. Above all this book left me in awe of God's glorious creation.

    This book is for men and women who enjoy the outdoors. Get your copy of Majestic and Wild and go on an unforgettable adventure. While reading you will learn some valuable and biblical lessons_and you will be blessed!
