Editorial Reviews

Review

"Skillfully written raw adventure on every page . . . sure to be life-changing."--Steve Chapman, author, A Look at Life From a Deer Stand

From the Back Cover

"Skillfully written raw adventure on every page . . . sure to be life-changing."--Steve Chapman, author, A Look at Life From a Deer Stand

Not all spiritual lessons can be learned while sitting in church.
Sometimes you have to get up and get outside to experience the grandeur of God. In Majestic and Wild, pastor, writer, and avid outdoorsman Murray Pura weaves his real-life adventures with spiritual inspiration and life lessons, capturing the majestic and wild creation that God has set before us all. From animal encounters to wildfires to raging rapids to Daniel Boone hunts and buffalo stampedes, the stories range from dramatic and suspenseful to lighthearted and whimsical. Each story is woven with spiritual lessons not easily learned from sitting in a pew.


"God's creation immerses us in both heart-stopping beauty and adrenalin-producing danger. Many people go to the wilderness with a camera for solace and comfort. Murray Pura goes with two dogs and a rifle, quite aware of the risk and unpredictability of the wild. This devotional excursion through 'what God has wrought' is rooted in Scripture and amplified in prayer."--Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College

"Pastor Pura loves the great outdoors and writes about his often breathtaking experiences of it with intimacy, immediacy, and a kind of quivering vividness that makes his book un-put-downable."--J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College

"Murray Pura invites you to join him in rugged and wild forest, field, and ocean adventures. Some of these adventures are planned and some are serendipitous, but he uses all of his experiences to reflect on the majesty and grandness of our Creator God."--Robert D. Blackaby, PhD, president, Canadian Southern Baptist Seminary and College

Murray Pura was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and has traveled extensively throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Ordained as a Baptist minister in 1986, Pura has served five churches and has fifteen books published. An award-winning author, Pura has an MDiv from Acadia University and Baptist Divinity School and a ThM and DCS from Regent College (Vancouver). He lives by the Rocky Mountains near Calgary, Alberta.
