There could be no two better servants of God, than Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg, to teach us how to reach people with the message of Christ. They have chosen to share some of their most fantastic evangelistic experiences through, "The Unexpected Adventure." What the authors show us is that this journey of faith will bring amazing "unexpected" encounters when we're trusting in God to use our lives for His purposes. With incredible transparency and subtle humor, the authors present a wide range of unexpected encounters throughout their lives that have brought lost souls to a place of surrender. The Great Commission is not to be taken lightly; it is our responsibility as Christians to be vessels of God. But too often, we get comfortable in our "religious" ways; reading our Bible, attending church, and serving in the community-we believe that surely that is enough to live a life of faith. We fail to take the extra step of evangelism because fear stands at our door. Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg use their experiences to show us that there are no boundaries to how God can use you in any given situation to bring the message of the Good News to those who are lost. "The Unexpected Adventure" is not a book that you read cover to cover in a few sittings. It is truly a devotional type book and an incredible resource that provides even further resources within it to help you through your own adventure. This book filled me with conviction by the Holy Spirit that the time is now and I must do more to reach those who are lost with the message of Christ. "The Unexpected Adventure" has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and move to the front lines in my journey of faith. Strobel and Mittelberg show us that there's nothing to fear, we've got "Spiritual back-up!" Through this book, you will learn that God is behind the scenes of your adventure with plans and purposes that reach far beyond all that you can dare to hope for or imagine!

"The Unexpected Adventure" by Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg is a book I really enjoyed reading. Having read other books by Lee Strobel I was excited to read this book and I was not disappointed.This is a devotional style book that is hard to put down but needs to be in order to digested. It is not a deep theological book but one that challenges our comfort zone of not sharing our faith. It is a humorous book that will motivate/challenge you (me) to be more willing to step out and share our faith. The stories in the book will show the reader that sharing one's faith is not a complicated ordeal nor is it only for those who stand behind a pulpit/podium.My favorite part of the book was that it reminds us that we may not always be the one to reap the harvest of a soul won for the Kingdom. Some of us may be the seed planter and that is perfectly fine.Using my criteria of "was I moved" this book receives a 4.5 out of 5. I was challenged to look at my life and see if I was being pro-active enough in sharing my faith (thinking). The book also allowed me to laugh. I would highly recommend this book for my friends.Paperback, 304 pagesZondervanMay 01, 2009

This book has inspired me to actually pray for opportunities to share my faith, and God has answered my prayers. The authors stories made me want to embark upon my own evangelizing adventures. What an amazing book! If you have been afraid to share your faith, this book will give you courage and strength!

This book was not what I was expecting. It was a great collection of motivating stories about how this person was able to share Christ in his life. However, I was expecting more of an educational account of how to work sharing Christ into my everyday life. I wanted steps on how I could begin to talk with people in a more comfortable and natural way. To be fair I must say I did not finish the book. I flipped ahead and it did not look like it was heading where I needed it to.
