This book was excellent and very easy to read. Using personal examples and biblical accounts, John Ortberg gives practical suggestions for those who feel they are "stuck in a rut" but feel reluctant or uncertain how to take that next step. While the book stands alone, the study guide that accompanies it was very helpful and provided additional insight.
This is the third Bible study my congregation has done over the past several months, and by far their favorite. They are thoroughly enjoying the combination of John Ortberg's humor, the reading, DVD, and Bible study questions. I would highly recommend this curriculum for Bible study or small groups.
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.
