I received this book from Bethany House Publishers/Baker Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review.
Well, I am certainly glad I chose this book to review. Another awesome read from Bethany House.
I started reading it and couldn't put it down. It's not your typical missionary autobiographical story. First, God gave Carl Medearis a wonderful sense of humor. He could also have a career as a stand up comedian, I really mean that. He writes his stories with a conversational tone and humor. This book is a well written, easy to read account of the Medearis family as they traveled and lived among the Muslim and Arab people, how God opened up doors, unbelievable doors so they could minister to them, and share God's love. I enjoyed reading it so much, I didn't realize I was being taught and strengthened in my faith to say "Yes" to God, even when I'm afraid. I believe you will also be inspired in your faith too. I highly recommend this book. I'll sum it up in texting language. " Lol" ( )

Adventures Await When You Overcome Fear This is the story of a normal family of five living a very unusual life. The Medearis family has faced Middle Eastern prisons, death threats, being kicked out of a country two times, and war. It hasn't always been easy, but in the midst of it all, the invitation of Jesus to follow and not be afraid has won the day. But this is more than just their story. It's also a guide to help you step out in bold faith. Whether the call of Jesus for you means international intrigue, giving up all you have for the poor, or simply being the suburban neighbor you were always meant to be, it's time to begin your own adventure! To live a life where fear takes a backseat and God takes the wheel. In the end, of course, there are no promises of an easy life or a path free of troubles. But enormous blessings await those who walk in faith. It's time to go where Jesus is calling and do what God is doing. Don't put off the adventure he's been saving just for you.… (more)
