Product Description

For Russell Fralick, there were never enough adventures, never enough challenges, never enough dangers. His ambition drove him to seek the next big thrill in hanging hundreds of feet off the ground in his native United Kingdom and around the world. He was consumed with climbing the highest mountains and most daunting rock faces.
And then it happened. In the wet darkness of a climb gone awry, he came face-to-face with death. Suddenly this man who had been running from questions of faith and immortality as fast as he could climb the next mountain was confronted with not just the end of his climbing career but the end of life itself.
In Over the Top, Russell Fralick pulls you up the highlands with him to experience all of the adventure, heart-pounding excitement, and absolute terror that come with extreme climbing. Join him as he scales glaciers and mountains in search of meaning that goes beyond the next big rush.

    What an exciting book! You do not have to be a rock climber or sports lover to enjoy this book. The author does a good job of pulling you into his story. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I enjoyed the action and the personal account of his life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to see how the Lord can direct your life even when you think all is lost. Overall this was an enjoyable book, although I do not think I would read it again!

    I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    Not being a rock climber or knowing that much about the sport, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book. I thought it might be boring with all the details about rock climbing techniques, but I was pleasantly surprised! It was very interesting and the author's detailed explanations put me right alongside them experiencing everything. It also gave me a newfound respect for the strength and courage this sport takes.

    The author's story is like many people searching for Christ and trying to fill that void with other things. I must admit his way of running from God was much more dangerous than the average!

    I usually read at night before I go to sleep because it helps me relax. It didn't work that way with this book! I could feel Mr. Fralick's frustration in his attempt to be the best, gain the respect among his peers, and get that adrenaline high he craved. I felt my body tense at the unpredictable and suspenseful moments he faced. I also became exasperated with him that even after many close calls he was delivered from, he turned around and went again to even riskier ones! With all the suspense this was definitely NOT a help you go to sleep book!

    His story proves you can't run from God. With all his wanderings, risk taking and seeking the wrong solutions to the anxiety he was experiencing, I could see God working. His hand is seen throughout the story planting seeds, gently guiding Mr. Fralick closer to Him. Yet as with many of us he just didn't get it until that one climb, that one moment he never thought would happen to him, when he faced death head on. It was a blessing that when he did accept Christ he gave himself and his life completely to Him. His passion for rock climbing took on a whole new direction and meaning in the Lord's hands.

    I received this book free from Discovery House Publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
