“Imprisoned in my kayak, I leaned back and wondered if this choice I had made was perhaps the most foolish, ill-advised choice of my entire life.”
Paul Stutzman was stuck in the weeds. Literally stuck, in the thick weeds of a Mississippi River swamp.
All of us at one time or another are “stuck.” We may find ourselves at a place In our jobs, our marriages, our parenting, or our faith when there seem to be no answers and no clear path ahead. What does a follower of Jesus do then?
Stutzman gives an honest account of events and questions in his own life that left him feeling just as stuck as the thick, impenetrable swamp weeds that confounded his Mississippi River journey. In a pilgrimage to find answers and clarity on personal and faith issues, he hikes a famous trail in Spain and ponders how choosing to be a disciple of Christ affects the choices we all make in our pilgrimages.
His reflections will challenge the discipleship of every follower of Jesus.

Thousands of years ago, God Himself gave us His very words. First, we received them engraved upon stone by God's own hand. Later, He spoke through His faithful prophets. Originally on sheep skin and later on papyrus scrolls, Jewish scribes meticulously scripted each word.
Today, we have endeavored to preserve an appreciation for those ancient scrolls. These one-of-a-kind Bibles are printed in King James format on 400 feet of tear-proof, parchment-colored substrate, displayed in a finely crafted finger-jointed hardwood housing. Truly precious beyond words, the Holy Scriptures are the essence of life; God's very breath. This extraordinary scroll will bring with it a unique user experience and make a very special gift that will be cherished for generations.
Paul Stutzman’s hiking shoes have slogged through Maine’s mud, filled with Mississippi River water, traversed Spain’s plains, and now tread, in awe, some of the same hillsides, shores, and streets where Jesus’ sandals trod.
On a hike through Israel, Paul and his friend Craig visit places that were prominent in the life and ministry of Jesus. Paul is seeking two things: to better know the human Jesus and to find the answer to a question that has puzzled him for years—What does it mean to follow Jesus?
This journey changes Paul’s understanding of many of the stories in the Gospels. He writes his account in hopes that you, too, will find a closer relationship with Jesus of Nazareth as you go with him and Craig to Nazareth, Capernaum, the far country, the gates of hell, the manger in Bethlehem, the Garden Tomb, and the city of Jerusalem.
That just-right touch. That just-right taste. What can I make that is special-something that whispers “you’re special to me”?
