If You Want to Walk on Water You've Got to Get Out of the Boat

Review of the Books, Video and DVD by John Ortberg

 

John Ortberg is both a psychologist and a church community Pastor. He gives excellent practical advice on how to move out of our comfort zone and start really living life to the full - fulfilling our innermost dreams, heart's desires and life purpose. The journey to personal fulfilment starts here, but there is a price to pay! - A certain amount of risk, fear and even terror may be called for, but Ortberg gives some fine advice on how to overcome our anxiety and fears.

The book is witty, well-laced with good humour and full of real-life present day stories to inspire us, as well as drawing on the symbolism of the well-known Gospel story of St. Peter walking on water (and also eventually failing) before he can return to the disciples storm tossed boat, which then becomes calm and safe under the direction of his teacher, Jesus Christ.

Although John Ortberg writes from a religious Christian perspective, the book is full of helpful insights and tips which can be helpful to anyone, regardless of their creed or religion or even in the absence of any religious belief.
