The Walk
Reflections on Life & Faith from the Appalachian Trail
by Randy Motz | Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: April 2010

Thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, 2,175 miles, from Georgia to Maine in one continuous hike, is a life-changing journey; a journey fraught with unimaginable obstacles, yet rich in unrivaled rewards. It is also a journey awash with spiritual significance. The spiritual aspects of such an odyssey are captured in a new book, “The Walk – Reflections on Life and Faith from the Appalachian Trail.”

Using stories from their own 2006 thru-hike, scripture passages, inspirational quotes, and words of wisdom from Native Americans, Randy Motz and his hiking partner and wife, Georgia Harris, explain the spiritual revelations they encountered and draw the many parallels between walking the trail and a “walk of faith.”

“The Walk” touches on eight key spiritual topics: The Path, Perseverance, Pride, Prayer, Family, Praise, Simplicity and Service. Each topic has its foundation in biblical references and each is brought into real life perspective through anecdotes from life on the A.T.

“…uniquely informative and inspirational…a must have for those who seek spiritual insight while in the wilderness. Randy and Georgia share pictures of the peaks and valleys of their trail experiences as well as the wisdom they gained during their adventure. You will find treasures in every chapter.”

- Craig and Suzy Miles - Founders, Appalachian Trail Servants, Inc. & Authors of, Seeker's Guide to the Spiritual Wilderness

“…a very good book written by two very good people. Randy and Georgia do not write as “armchair philosophers” – sitting on the sidelines of life spouting nice sounding but empty spiritual platitudes… they write from the nitty-gritty of personal (and sometimes painful) real world experience…a masterful job…they show how their journey on the A.T. closely mirrors our journey with God...The parallels between “trail life” and “real life” spirituality are skillfully drawn and easily understood…equally accessible both to those who might consider themselves beginners on their spiritual journey and those who have been on a “walk of faith” for many years. Both will discover the ring of truth in these pages. And both will be encouraged – and equipped – to travel well the trail before them.”

- Ken Jackson, Pastor of Spiritual Formation, Cedarbrook Community Church, Clarksburg, MD

“…an insightful book…describes the challenge, beauty and wonder of the A.T. from Randy and Georgia's perspective as thru- hikers…inspires the reader by relating those footsteps to the challenges of our daily lives, and more specifically, to our walk of faith…I found a trail of tales and challenges, bits of wisdom, guiding scripture and devotionals that stopped me in my tracks and made me evaluate where I am in my walk…this book may lead you to Maine or Georgia, or somewhere in between to start your own walk.”

- Nick Melnick, Worship Leader and Hiker
