Eric Hanson claimed to follow the most remarkable person in history, yet his life was as exciting as sugarless gum. Confronted with a disparity between a promise of abundant life and what he saw in life surrounding him, he left everything behind for a year to travel around the globe through the world's poorest countries.
Refugees, hermits, prostitutes, mobs, secret police, monks, and a motorcycle gang. A dangerous journey introduces us to a fresh side of faith, God, and a fulfilling life.
My eyes were opening to whole new levels of pain and poverty, darkness and despair, I saw new and altogether beautiful things become real to me. The Bible is full of God's promises of healing and restoration, but those words always seemed plastic and hollow to me. For the first time in my life, I began to see God move and heal to truly touch people in the midst of unbearable pain. And in that, God's message of restoration suddenly took on a significant, real-life meaning to me.
As I watched Jose's transformation, my heart was ripped from my chest and squeezed until my muted soul could hear God whispering that this real change, real love, not contrite phrases in an old book was the heart of God for His people.
Eric has written a powerful, endearing account of his adventures around the world. But this isn't a book that will leave you feeling helpless. It will give you faith in your own story and hope for living a more meaningful one.
