"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. His reminiscences wonderfully light up realities of life through, in, with, and under Jesus Christ our Lord." - 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. He has carefully chosen both Scripture texts and stories to provide a unique glimpse into the wonder of God's ways with his world." - Robert D. Blackaby, PhD, president, Canadian Southern Baptist Seminary and College
"In Majestic and Wild, Murray Pura has skillfully written raw adventure on every page. These stories are sure to guide every reader on the trail of adventure to life-changing spiritual discoveries. Make room in your pack for this book!" - Steve Chapman, author, A Look at Life From a Deer Stand.
