About the Book

Life is an adventure, and every experience teaches us. This book is a compilation of true adventure stories, each with a life-lesson. The settings include mountain climbing, marathon running, cave exploration, travel, surfing, and competition. There are stories of disappointments and successes. Each has a powerful life-lesson that will resonate with the reader’s journey.

“This book is the closest thing in form to a kind of modern expression of parables I’ve ever read. Clear, compelling, mysterious, and evocative all at once. Beautiful. Read this!”

—A.J. Swoboda (PhD, Birmingham) is assistant professor of Bible, theology, and World Christianity at Bushnell University and the author of After Doubt.
