    One thought on “The Extravagant Fool: A Faith Journey That Begins Where Common Sense Ends

    1. Jennifer Donovan

      I have learned by experience what it means to trust God even when it hurts. It seems like we only truly tune our ear to God's voice during difficult inexplicable situations. Kevin Adams knows this. He went from a financial success to one dealing with the failure of his business and the failure of his role of provider to his family. It was only in realizing that he could not provide for his family that he learned to truly trust God as The Provider.That last sentence is a good enough sound bite fo [...]

      Adams and his family had it all in early 2008. They lived in a million dollar house, had properties, rentals, a business condominium. He was highly leveraged and owed millions. By January of 2009 he had lost it all and was heavily in debt. He tells his journey of faith as he learned he had had a skewed idea of faith. He was a committed Christian and had been a success in the eyes of his Christian brothers. Over these last years he has learned what it means to be surrendered to God, not just comm [...]

      The Extravagant Fool is one of the most profound books I've read to date. This is my favorite line in his book, "Ultimately, we fine that love is impossible in either direction without faith—faith that raises our expectations of God so we can lovingly lower them of people."It's about a journey to child like faith and trust in some of the most challenging circumstances. This is the kind of faith that took Peter out of the boat and into the water. Kevin shares with such rich story and startling [...]

      Highly recommended for anyone who is walking (or has walked) through one of those long dry valleys described in Psalm 84. I loved this book for its authentic portrayal of the Christian walk. There's a reason we used the phrase "leap of faith," that moment when you let go of your common sense and trust God fully. What a joy to discover that God is who He says He is. The pastor of a church we attended used to say that God is not an errand boy or a genii in a bottle. He's the master of the universe [...]

      Just what I needed and a Must Read for everyone!It’s only been a few days since I finished reading Kevin Adams’ The Extravagant Fool: A Faith Journey That Begins Where Common Sense Ends, knowing anything I would write would fall short of my best intentions. So let’s start with this: read the book.This was the right book at the right time for me, a confirmation of the message God was already whispering in my ears, and a lifeboat sent by someone living through more treacherous waters than I [...]

      pagebypagebookbybook.Kevin Adams’ The Extravagant Fool is a truly inspirational story. As he tells of his sudden and complete financial loss and the subsequent hardships, Adams writes transparently and bravely of his personal flaws and failings and the challenges he helped to create for his family. Though many readers may not have had the same drastic change in circumstances, his story is relatable and relevant from cover to cover. In the midst of the glaring and overwhelming difficulties, Ada [...]

      I am inspired to live a life that is more in tune to the voice of God and willing to step out in foolish faith for a God I know will provide. As I read this creatively written story my head filled with people I can't wait to share this book with. Many, if not most of those people are successful Christian business men who I know carry heavy weight on their sholders that God Himself has covered if they would just trust and obey Him. I believe readers will be as inspired as I am by this testimony t [...]

      (Full disclosure: I received a free electronic review copy in exchange for an honest review.) This book is a short memoir of losing almost everything and finding God’s plan through the valleys and God’s timing. Recommended for public libraries.

    9. Niel Knoblauch

      An an epic testimony with box-breaking truths, making for a must-read book. I can relate to both the overall trajectory and many details in it, because of its similarity to God's journey with my own family. "Only when God becomes all we want do we truly see that He is all we need." Here's to becoming a "fool" for Christ.
