Publisher's Summary

What happens when we take Jesus at his word when he says, "I have come that you might have life and have it to the full?" New York Times best-selling author Mark Batterson and his mentor, Richard Foth, have done just that with their lives - and in A Trip Around the Sun, they show listeners how they too can experience their lives and faith as the ultimate adventure.

In a fun, storytelling style, Mark and Dick challenge listeners to shake off fear, dream big, 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 minute, invigorating those of us who have found ourselves stuck in a rut dug by our sense of duty and our fear of the unknown. Anyone who wants to grab life and squeeze every ounce of joy out of it will be inspired by this unapologetic celebration of the life Jesus died to give us.

Worth every minute

This book sparks renewal and reset.....they inspire as they story tell and they reveal the heart of God in the path put before any one of us . A great start to a new year or a new day. Have loved both men as teaching pastors through podcast for the last several years, but this book takes it up a notch and inspires my desire to fight complacency and following the cultural herd; it renews my desire to leave a legacy for my children and to look at the second half of my life as the starting point! Thanks Richard Foth and Mark Batterson. WELL DONE!

Pretty Good

There were a few times where this book was thought provoking & inspirational but not as much as Mark Batterson's other books were to me. Still, it was an interesting & worthwhile read.

Not the best Batterson book

What made the experience of listening to A Trip Around the Sun the most enjoyable?

It was an okay listen. Not as good as Mark Batterson's other books.

Best Book Ever! DO NOT MISS THIS ONE!

I am a total Mark Batterson fan, but this book blended with Richard Foth and read by them was by far the most inspirational and thought provoking book I've read. It is chucked full of so many God nuggets that I am going to buy it in book form so I can highlight and remember all the great stuff. This is a MUST read for all Christians that needs their motivation recharged or just want to be challenged. I just loved it. Write some more together guys!! I love you Richard Foth! Don't care how old you are!

Exceptional

A great diolog about mentoring and it's impact on the way mentor as well as the mente. I think it is more impactful if you have read some of Mark's books and know more of his story, but I think I would have been impressed if I hadn't.

So Inspirational

Pastor Dick Foth and Pastor Mark Batterson did a masterful job painting a picture of a live filled with God blessed adventure! I needed to hear this book. I have hopes that after a length recovery from illness, God Almighty can and will use my life in dynamic life giving ways.

Grace

These stories remind me of God's Grace and help in my continued grief recovery. I am reminded in these words of the 'God Ordained' aspect of my adventures and to seek it BEFORE embarking on the next adventure glorifying Him!
