Publishers Description
Wonderlust is 30 spiritual travelogues that take readers on an adventurous journey around the globe, as well as on their own personal inner pilgrimage toward a better understanding of God and themselves. Readers join the author on a journey of discovery to find God's imprint on creation, from hiking the Inca Trail to riding a dogsled across the Arctic tundra. Readers will catch a glimpse of the wonder, beauty, and mystery of God's world--and their unique place in it and in God's heart.

From Publishers Weekly
A title as alluring as Wonderlust can't help evoking fantasies of the author's recollections, taking the reader floating across the world in luxuriously reflective repose or exciting adventure. Unfortunately, Kuyper (101 Ways to Be a Great Mom) does not quite deliver on the book's titular promise. Though her many vignettes tell of travels as far and wide as Machu Picchu in Peru, Assisi in Italy and the wilds of the Amazon, these are usually too short to suggest much sense of place and each ends abruptly with a laundry list of textbook like questions that attempt to shepherd readers through a similar revelatory spiritual moment. Though perfect for the morning commute, these short chapters won't satisfy the traveler who's settled in for a long trip. Rather than trust readers to "journey toward" the various chapter themes (Healing, Identity, Integrity, among others) on their own, she interrupts with awkward questions like "What has God used to `warm' you toward being more `positively' pious in your life?" For readers who can forgive the short chapters and ignore the textbookish style, rewards do await: though too hastily recounted Kuyper's travels (to 40 countries on five continents) are adventurous and fascinating on their own.

Reviews - What do customers think about Wonderlust?

Travel the world with humor and grace  Feb 12, 2008
Vicki Kuyper artfully ties her physical journey to her spiritual journey in a series of 30 stories based on her vast travels around the world. She has an enjoyable conversational style of writing and shares her experiences with authenticity, humor and grace.
Great gift or personal read  Dec 11, 2007
Short chapters in conversational style make this a perfect bedside read but is also applicable for personal devotions or a provocative small group study discussion. The word pictures of places you've never been make you feel on site and in awe. Perfect gift for anyone with a sense of adventure or desiring a deeper walk with God.
A Travelogue for the Soul!  Sep 13, 2007
Vicki Kuyper's new book, "Wonderlust" is an engaging read! She takes us on her journey to places as ordinary as Colorado to the exotic locale of Assisi, Italy, to the horrific Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Along the way she shares with us her spiritual journeys, along with discussion questions for the reader.

I found her writing style to be very fluid and well-balanced between her description of each location and her spiritual awakening at each location. This book is a nice way to vicariously travel the world, and to deepen your walk with God at the same time.

Perfect gift for the traveler at heart!
