The Great Adventure

The Challenge of Really Following Jesus

by Ken Symington

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

Jesus' enemies called Him many things but never dull. Following Jesus is not meant to be unexciting or monotonous. However, this is often the experience of many disciples today. What has gone wrong? How can we reclaim the life we see lived out in the New Testament, yet so often seems out of reach?

In his trademark style of humor and revealing honesty, Ken Symington guides us on a path to deeper intimacy with the Master. He challenges readers to pursue Jesus in a way few have ever thought possible. If you're ready to live like never before, then this book is the best place to start.



If you are feeling left out, misunderstood, isolated or have questions about God's ability to release the fullness of His life into your life, then this book is for you. Ken speaks from his heart, gives vivid illustrations, and answers some of the most pressing questions that many of us wrestle with, or silently ask. Be prepared! The Great Adventure has the ability to change your life!
Rev. Dr ALISTAIR PETRIE, Author and Executive Director, Partnership Ministries, Canada.

If you want to live an ordinary Christian life then this book isn't for you. But if you want to go on a great adventure and lead an extraordinary life in the power of the Holy Spirit, this book by Ken Symington is a must!
JEFF WRIGHT, Lead Pastor, Green pastures -the people's church, Northern Ireland.

This is not a book for the bookshelf, it is for repeated reading and daily digesting for those who are honest about their desire to be real with God. It is a book that will greatly help you get going in your great adventure, really following Jesus. I cannot strongly enough recommend this book.
GORAN ANDERSON, Retired Director, Ellel Sweden & former missionary to Japan.

You will not fail to be both challenged and inspired as you read this book and I pray that it will stir you to press on and take hold of all that Jesus died to give you. Ken's first book, Loved Like Never Before, is our number one bestseller at Ellel Pierrepont and I believe this book will even outstrip that.
JILL SOUTHERN-JONES, Centre Director – Ellel Pierrepont, UK.

About the author

Ken Symington, born 1947, is from Northern Ireland. Although raised in a Christian home, he did not commit his life to Jesus until 1989, at the age of forty–two. In 1994, at the height of a successful business career in advertising, he heard the call of God and left the business world to follow Jesus, wherever that may lead. He founded Christian Restoration in Ireland; a ministry involved in teaching, prayer ministry and discipleship training. He has now taught God’s Word in nearly twenty nations around the world, and has been an associate teacher with Ellel Ministries International since 1997. His first book, Loved Like Never Before—Discovering the Father–Heart of God, has had a profound effect on many lives. Ken has been married to Linda for more than thirty years, and they have three sons, one daughter and four grandchildren. He is a keen landscape photographer.
