  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/11/2014

    " I liked it, but didn't finish it all. Easy to get the gist once through a few chapters. Important and challenging concept about being willing to take risks in life in order to really experience it at it's fullest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Barber | 2/5/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 2/3/2014

    " During my junior year of college, I took a Romans class at PCC. We had to write a paper and I referenced this book. It was such a help to me that after college I purchased it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 1/27/2014

    " I don't know why people give me so much grief for how strongly I took this book to heart. It was a great challenge to me and also gave me some one liners that still sting my soul. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crae Achacoso | 1/9/2014

    " This is probably the best book I've read this year. I like how Ortberg referenced relatable and true-to-life stories in the concepts he talked about. My book is practically abused with pen and pencil underlines. It's the type of book you'd love to reread again and again and still get new insights from it each time you do. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Youstina Demetry | 12/31/2013

    " This book is inspirational. It gives an new perspective to the story of peter walking on water. This book maybe that little push you need in your spiritual life. Loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abby | 12/18/2013

    " This was OK, but the metaphor of the boat felt cheesy to me pretty fast. I didn't finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ricka | 12/17/2013

    " It usually does not take me this long to read a book but when you have to stop every so many pages and reflect on what you've read and what it means to you, that is what happens. Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to "walk on water". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 12/12/2013

    " amazing book, highly recommend it. "

    " On my top ten list "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kay Melton | 9/14/2013

    " I felt like this book repeated itself a lot. I could have read most of it in one or two chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 8/25/2013

    " This is an amazing book on getting past every day routines and living out your walk with God! "

    " This book changed my life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mac | 6/19/2013

    " An easy book to read with some searching questions at the end of each chapter. This book was an epiphany for me particularly Chapter 8 on Focussing on Jesus. Not just explained as theory but practical steps. A good small group resource, we're doing it in our group at the moment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 3/8/2013

    " It's been a while since I read this book, so I cannot speak to great specifics, however, I found Ortberg's book both applicable to my life and humorous. It was a read that my Bible study enjoyed discussing and reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 11/10/2012

    " Great Book...stepping out of our comfort zone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tosha | 10/6/2012

    " Great Book! Loved the humor but more than that, I loved how he spoke on the debilitating disease of fear and how it robs us of what God has for us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 10/5/2012

    " very good! Almost each sentence speaks to my heart. Ortberg uses down-to-earth words to explain things, the book made me laugh even when it is talking about heavy stuff. Well deserved 5 stars! "

About the Narrator

Maurice England moved to the Chicago area in the fall of 2006, after a twelve year run as a long-haul trucker, to continue the cultivation of his lifelong interest in the expressive arts and oral interpretation. A veteran audiophile, Maurice listened to well over one thousand audiobooks while on the road and fell in love with the genre. From his past experience in broadcasting, community theater, music performance, and ministry he saw narrating as a means to merge his love for books, ideas, learning, and spiritual evolution with his interest in artistic expression. While his narration experience has primarily been nonfiction, personal development, and spiritual-growth titles, Maurice anticipates using his authentically warm and folksy southern style to entertain and inspire through storytelling. Inspired most by the behind-the-scenes artists who engineer, direct, edit, and master the audiobook productions we hear, Maurice has become an absorbed student and participant in the process.
