Reviews - What do customers think about If You Want To Walk On Water Get Out Of Boat-Study Guide?
The best Christian writer of our day Jan 31, 2007
It's funny -- I love James Taylor and I love John Ortberg. I think the commonality there is that they are such great wordsmiths. Very honest, plain-spoken, and yet so much is contained in so little said. Ortberg is not a poet, but he's able to see great truth in simple things. If you avoid being confronted with truth, then avoid this book. But if you're ready to face it, then read it. He's the CS Lewis of our day.
You Too Can Walk on Water Jan 3, 2007
The weekly men's breakfast and Bible study that I lead spent an enjoyable six weeks examining how following Jesus today requires the same faith that allowed Peter to step out of the relative safety of the boat and move toward Jesus on the water. If you or the people you care about need encouragement in moving out of the comfort zone, this book will help.
Faith Sep 28, 2006
This is one of the best book that I have which talk about faith. If you need encouragement or something to help you increase your faith, then this is the book for you.
If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat - Participants Guide Sep 20, 2005
John Ortberg really knows how to make it real and how to get people to begin applying biblical principles to their lives.
Get Your Small Group Out of the Boat Mar 14, 2005
Ortberg's small group series are among the best, if used with his teaching DVD's (Zondervan, but you'll have to find that elsewhere, it appears).
This particular study appeals to a broad range of backgrounds, and experience levels. We all wrestle with "staying comfortable" vs. "stepping out in faith" when the situation calls for it. Through excellent groups discussion and Scripture investigation questions it is easy to guide a group to go beyond their current "comfort zone" and take steps of faith "outside the boat."
But purchasethe DVD for best results (use an Internet search engine and you should find it quickly). Ortberg is a master teacher, and his 25-30 minute teaching is a must.
