New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson and his mentor, Richard Foth, will help you answer that question before it's too late. In a storytelling style, Mark and Dick challenge you to take more risks, dream bigger dreams, and quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. The accumulated wisdom from their combined 117 trips around the sun radiates from every heartfelt page.

    Want to grab life and squeeze every ounce of adventure out of it? Be inspired by this unapologetic celebration of the life Jesus died to give you.


    "There is no word in the English language like the word adventure. A Trip around the Sun will awaken your hunger to make your life your adventure. If you can read this book without being stirred to life--check your pulse." - John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Soul Keeping

    "This is a terrific book, written by two of my favourite people on the planet. I've known Dick and Mark for many years, and they're trusted friends and guides. Though they are authors, scholars, leaders, and pastors, they don't care at all about titles. They care about people. I've seen the way they embrace the disenfranchised and the way they interact with leaders of entire countries. It's exactly the same. That's because they've learned to love people the way Jesus did. You'll want to do the same after reading this book." - Bob Goff, attorney and author of Love Does

    "A magnetic message of risk, reflection, and relationship. Throw this one in your luggage for your next trip around the sun." - Christine Caine, author of Unstoppable

    "This book will inform and inspire you during your annual trip around the sun. Writing from the overflow of remarkable living, Mark Batterson and Dick Foth provide an owner's manual for an abundant and adventurous life." - Dr Barry Black, Chaplain of the United States Senate
