He gives excellent practical advice on how to move out of our comfort zone and start really living life to the full - fulfilling our innermost dreams, heart's desires and life purpose.

The book is witty, well-laced with good humor and full of real-life present day stories to inspire us, as well as drawing on the symbolism of the well-known Gospel story of St. Peter walking on water (and also eventually failing) before he can return to the disciples storm tossed boat, which then becomes calm and safe under the direction of his teacher, Jesus Christ.
Although John Or berg writes from a religious Christian perspective, the book is full of helpful insights and tips which can be helpful to anyone, regardless of their creed or religion or even in the absence of any religious belief.
In the six sessions in this curriculum based on the award-winning author's book, Or berg teaches participants the skills essential to "water-walking" in faith with God: discerning God’s call, transcending fear, risking faith, managing failure, and trusting God. The curriculum kit includes a leader's guide, a participant's guide, a DVD video, a VHS video, and a hardcover edition of the book.
