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.

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!
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.
Loved this book. First person narration made it more interesting and challenging. Highly recommend this book to those who are seeking purpose God' purpose for their life. These two men call us to leave a legacy for others and to live life to the fullest.
This book will challenge your view of life and challenge you to live your life more fully, while the stories will also amuse you and touch your heart. Highly recommend!
What a great book. Challenged me to live life fuller than ever before as I seek to serve the Lord. God bless the authors.
It was an okay listen. Not as good as Mark Batterson's other books.

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!
I've just finished this book, and am ready to start listening to it again! It has been life-changing to say the least. The adventures, wisdom, and humor stored within these pages will brand your heart with a desire to live life to its fullest and to dream no small dreams! A HUGE thanks to David and Dick, the authors, God has used your life stories to challenge and encourage me to live out some stories of my own. Grateful.
Traveler, helper, leader, becomer.
The telling of this by two friends who have experienced and valued many adventures was very interesting. It was great the way the two of them tell their own stories and how they value the friendship of each other.
