Aaron Tredway’s recently released book Outrageous (Baker Books) is an easy and enjoyable read. Comprised of mostly entertaining and frequently humorous stories, Tredway demonstrates how God uses normal people when they are willing to get out of their comfort zone, take advantage of opportunities when they present themselves and trust Him.
By taking advantage of these God opportunities and trusting God in and through these opportunities Tredway demonstrates (through numerous personal stories) how you can leave the ordinary life and begin experiencing the outrageous life.
A question posed by Tredway Is Jesus worthy of my life? is a question all of us must ask. The obvious answer (Yes!) should cause us to do as he does – abandon our current agenda when God calls us to something else or presents us with an opportunity for courageousness.
Tredway quotes Os Guiness (great-great-grandson of Arthur Guinness – of the beer – which I didn’t know) saying “Our problem is not that we aren’t where we should be, but that we aren’t what we should be where we are.”
Basically, if you want a good, easy read that will encourage you to step out in faith this might do it for you. You’ll also learn a bit about Aaron Tredway, how being single is not a hindrance to outrageous or Godly living, and how God will do outrageous things with you if you’ll just get out of your rut.
