The title of this book should be "How to Walk with God on the Road You Never Wanted to Travel". Mark Atteberry makes it VERY plain and clear at the beginning that this is a HOW TO book, only, and not a book that seeks to answer the WHY questions.
The exodus of the Israelites out of the land of ancient Egypt is both the backdrop and the main source of Atteberry's material, which he uses to demonstrate the lessons he wishes to teach. Each chapter contains a mix of biblical scriptures along with his experiences as a pastor/counselor. His biblical discussions were much more helpful to me than his personal experience stories.
One of the important things this book drove home in my mind, is that a lifetime walk with God is a guaranteed certainty that the journey will be on a route no one would ever deliberately choose. Be careful what you ask for.....you just may get it!
On the other hand, it is an irritating turn-off that Atteberry uses the "Devil's gonna get you" mentality throughout his book. Living in fear of Satan is not a basis for righteous living. It is more important to live a life motivated by the love of God.
I enjoyed the real-life stories he tells within the book, as I thought they made a bigger impression into why things happen the way they tend to do in life.
However, towards the end in the discussion section, I was a little drawn away that he offers no suggestions no how to go about locating or seeking the items/defining moments in your life, so as to answer the questions and progress onwards in your faith journey.
I felt that this book might be geared more towards those that have already heard God's call versus those that are seeking Him out. Lost sheep would do better reading another book.
