Product Description

Far too many of us have put our faith in a casual Christianity that never compels us to leave our comfort zones. But, deep within our hearts we know that Christ has not called us to comfort, but to an exciting, sacrificial and overwhelmingly fulfilling faith. In If You're Going to Walk on Water John Ortberg teaches us how to step out of the "boat" of casual Christianity so that we can faithfully follow the Lord who is calling us out onto the risky, exciting waters of the high seas. Let Pastor Ortberg teach you how to leave your comfort zone for a remarkable life of faith.

Publisher's Description

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.

    If You Want To Walk On Water You've Got To Get Out Of The BOAT
    January 31, 2015
    This book is awesome. There are so many things in life that holds us back from expressing our faith. This book provided helpful guidance to strengthen my faith. Time to get out of the many boats that we think provide "security".

    Awesome book. First read it on my Kindle, and before I was done, I ordered several 'real' books- one for me, and 5 more for gifts to friends. I know I will be referring to that book often! So much practical application and examples of walking with the Lord and His messages to us in His Word, the Bible.

    I've already started another John Ortberg book, and have more of his titles on my 'to read' list.

    This was an excellent read and study. I read this many years ago, the hardback and gave it away, then would buy another copy to keep the cycle ongoing to guys that came into my path who were searching and trying to understand some of God's ways of teaching. Why am I going through this? What does this mean? What am I suppose to understand with these principles? This book exceeds in its own way of delivering "a way to grow" in Christ, thus for a Christian - "how to grow in my life path?"

    You will not be disappointed with this read and study, especially when making a life application!

    The Good Book says we're to yell upon the housetops, those things that Christ does for us, here I am yelling to you.

    Read & Praxis the principles of this book. When we can learn through others experiences and growing instructions, then this is the wisdom of God that comes into our lives. The only bad thing here, is you have to purchase the wisdom.
