Publisher's Description

Torry Martin—a comedian, actor, and hippie—fled from California to the wilderness of Alaska, searching for answers to life's big questions. He found what he was looking for...and a lot more!

A moose got its head stuck in Torry's window. A reindeer was trapped in his kitchen. A bear almost prevented him from reaching his airplane. He once woke up frozen to his cabin floor.

Like the Israelites of old, Torry experienced plenty of miracles and mishaps in the wilderness. And like them, he came face-to-face with God and was changed forever.

Each of these true stories of Torry's hilarious blunders and misfortunes contains a nugget of truth, but one theme prevails: If God can reclaim and repurpose Torry Martin's life, He can do the same for you and those you love.

    "Of Moose and Men: Lost and Found in Alaska" by Torry Martin and Doug Peterson is a lighthearted little book that packs a big punch. It is easy to read, and easy to understand.

    This book contains a lot of comedy along with some very serious stories. Torry shares some of his experiences of the time he spent living in Alaska. He was learning many lessons about life and about God. Each chapter of his book deals with a different issue, a fun (and sometimes painful) story, and a life application. Torry has learned about the love God has for each of us, along with how to laugh and move on from the pain of the past.

    This is a great book about wildlife, God and life! I think men and teenage boys would especially find it fun and easy to read. You will find yourself laughing out loud while you read this.

    I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I have not heard of either of the authors of this book before, but boy was I in for a treat. I have a great love of books and each one is a treasure to me. This book made me laugh so hard I was crying while trying to tell my hubby some of the things in the book. I will never forget the bear story. Can you imagine you and a bear in the wilderness with pots and pans to arm yourself with? There are great stories throughout the book that have insightful lessons for all of us.

    The beautiful way Alaska was described made me think of the world that God created for us to enjoy and explore. The authors really had their hands full at times with mishaps and misunderstandings. Along their journey, they experienced surprises, answered prayers and a closer relationship with God. I loved the story about them praying for a table. God really answered their prayer that day with three tables. He knew what they needed and gave them exactly what they needed. The best part of the story is how they talked about God "uses broken , used up people to carry out His plans." The tables they were blessed with were not new, but to them it was perfect. Do we dismiss people because they look less than perfect to us? We need to learn to trust God and not discard what we think is unusable .

    Each chapter is filled with adventure and a reference to a story from the Bible along with scriptures. There was one story that really made me think about myself. One of the author's was talking about being bullied as a child because of his weight. I was teased as a child because I was so thin kids called me toothpick. I was very shy and hated everything about myself. Through his story I truly understood what it meant to see others the way Jesus does. I loved when he said," But the great truth is that we no longer have to look at ourselves the way the world does. We only need look at ourselves the way God does. And He thinks we're super. " Thank you for writing a book that is funny and teaches us to rely on God.

    I received this book from Book Fun.org and the option to leave my honest opinion of it was up to me.

    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Harvest House Publishers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with theFederal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 : Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

    Of Moose And Men explores the true-life adventures which are told by Torry Martin from a comical perspective. However, it does not end there, the adventures are mirrored along with Biblical lessons of truth and how they can be applied to everyones life. In addition, there are Scripture verses and references throughout the books content.

    When you are looking for encouragement and Biblical truth with a few chuckles and good-spirited laughter, pick up Of Moose And Men and start reading through the pages. Do not be surprised if you find yourself laughing out loud. Torry Martin tells of his adventures in the Alaska wilderness as well as giving the testimony of how he came to receive Jesus into his heart and life. Torry presents himself as a very laid back down-to-earth sort of personmuch like you and me.

    I recommend Of Moose And Men for many chuckles and a smile added to your face.

    Move over, Patrick McManus! Not since that survivalist humor writer (The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw, They Shoot Canoes, Don't They?) have I had to explain to my husband why I am laughing so hard as to fall out of bed. Author Torry Martin first became a household name in my family as my kids' favorite Adventures in Odyssey character Wooten, a redheaded hippy from Alaska based on Torry's own life. Of Moose and Men: Lost and Found in Alaska is a side-splitting odyssey of adventure for more grownup fans. But Torry's adventures touch a deeper chord than a good belly laugh, pointing readers towards the heavenly Father towards which Torry's wandering journey inexorably led--a Father whose loving arms are always open to embrace a returning prodigal child. Of Moose and Men will leave you wanting to laugh, cry, then pass the blessing on to family and friends.

    With a lighthearted and self-depreciating humor, I found myself giggling and most times laughing out loud--loud enough to wake my sleeping cat that hogged my side of the bed. Between the humor and words of wisdom, each chapter contained a story that was more relevant to a Christian in any walk of life no matter if we're from Alaska or not. I could visualize each scene and at times predict what would happen. And that made it an even merrier read.

    This book doesn't give black-n-white stories. It is chocked full of tie-dyed testimonies. Poignant reminders of Biblical truths that a reader is sure to highlight brings to light a refreshing and real look at life. God doesn't want perfect people. He wants us. And Torry Martin reiterates that time and time again.

    From crouching sin to the blindness to of the 21st century people to neon orange facial hair, these truths are spoken about in a heartwarming and delightful manner.

    I came away with quite a few quotes that spoke to me and I copied them down. I discovered new ways to look at things and people. And I felt a kinship with the author--for many reasons.

    I also learned more about how life intersects with another--from Air1 to Adventures in Odyssey, but I'll leave that for you to discover. And you'll enjoy discovering it, too.

    If I learned anything else from this book is that at times I'm a salmon ghost fish, I relate to the hippies, the misfits, and the weirdoes, and I suffer from "comparative worthistis", too. But it's all okay because God molded me. I, just like you, am His peculiar treasure.

    ***I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and complete review***
