Publisher's Description

Wonderlust is 30 spiritual travelogues that take readers on an adventurous journey around the globe, as well as on their own personal inner pilgrimage toward a better understanding of God and themselves. Readers join the author on a journey of discovery to find God?'s imprint on creation, from hiking the Inca Trail to riding a dogsled across the Arctic tundra. Readers will catch a glimpse of the wonder, beauty, and mystery of God?'s world and their unique place in it and in God?'s heart.

Publisher's Weekly

A title as alluring as Wonderlust can't help evoking fantasies of the author's recollections, taking the reader floating across the world in luxuriously reflective repose or exciting adventure. Unfortunately, Kuyper (101 Ways to Be a Great Mom) does not quite deliver on the book's titular promise. Though her many vignettes tell of travels as far and wide as Machu Picchu in Peru, Assisi in Italy and the wilds of the Amazon, these are usually too short to suggest much sense of place and each ends abruptly with a laundry list of textbook like questions that attempt to shepherd readers through a similar revelatory spiritual moment. Though perfect for the morning commute, these short chapters won't satisfy the traveler who's settled in for a long trip. Rather than trust readers to "journey toward" the various chapter themes (Healing, Identity, Integrity, among others) on their own, she interrupts with awkward questions like "What has God used to `warm' you toward being more `positively' pious in your life?" For readers who can forgive the short chapters and ignore the textbookish style, rewards do await: though too hastily recounted Kuyper's travels (to 40 countries on five continents) are adventurous and fascinating on their own. (Sept.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Publisher Description

    This is a must read for everyone that loves travel or wants to travel and experience God and what he is doing in your life when you travel. Vicki is an excellent author, her descriptions are awesome and she lets you know about how the troubles in your life are taken in be a loving, comforting God.I do know Vicki personally as a good friend, but I hadn't really read anything from her before and she is now one of my favorite Christian authors, not because I do know her but because her book is excellent and hard to put down. It is an easy read and you really can't put it down and if you do you can't wait to go back to reading it. Her questions after each chapter are very thought provoking. This would be a great Bible study book for women or any group.It is funny and eye opening to places you probably will never get to. She has stretched out her comfort zone in some of the places she has visited. I now feel like I have been to many places around the world without leaving home. You have to get this book.
