In the first four months since the book website for Denton’s book, Christian Outdoor Leadership was launched we have seen an overwhelming response to his book.  As of this week there have already been 3,845 visits from 68 countries/territories! And the Amazon Reviews have been wonderful as well.  If you haven’t ordered the book yet, now is the time! Read what one recent reviewer wrote on Amazon about the book:

Christian Outdoor Leadership was inspirational! This book made my top ten list after only a few minutes into it. If you’ve ever been on a hike that involved heart-to-heart talks between hikers as they traversed along a day’s trail, then reading this book is a lot like walking behind Dr. Ashley Denton and listening to him integrate the beauty and power of the backcountry with the joy and challenge of following Christ in today’s world. I loved the way he keeps pointing the reader to Jesus and how Jesus used outdoor experiences to speak truths to hungry souls. Whether you’re in ministry as a Christian leader or just drawn to outdoor experiences that bring you closer to God, this book is foundational. You can read it from cover to cover, or browse the table of contents and pick your way through to your heart’s content. I will always have a copy of this book in my library and recommend it without hesitation.
