Download this companion reflection guide and Bible study based on the book, A Short Walk to the Edge of Life by Scott Hubbartt.
It was supposed to be a simple day hike. Scott Hubbartt was a military veteran with years of survival training. Everyone who knew him considered him an expert adventurer.
But Scott’s trek into the treacherous backcountry canyons of the Peruvian Andes turned into a desperate fight to survive after he became hopelessly lost. As his eight-hour hike lengthened into days, Scott faced dehydration, hunger, and exhaustion. And that’s when his true journey began.
Chronicling the failures and miracles of a remarkable physical and spiritual passage, A Short Walk to the Edge of Life is the gripping, true story of a man who had to come to the end of himself before he could find his way home.
Praise for A Short Walk to the Edge of Life
“Think Robert Frost meets The Worst-Case Scenario handbook. Reading A Short Walk to the Edge of Life took me on the worst possible ‘road not taken,’ and even though I feel beaten up and drained emotionally, my spirits are lifted. Indeed, his journey has made all the difference.”
—Eric Blehm, New York Times best-selling author of Fearless

FEARLESS: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown by Eric Blehm
A national best-seller in hard cover, Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown, by award-winning author Eric Blehm tells the powerful and inspiring story of a prodigal son who found his life’s calling as part of the elite SEAL Team SIX brotherhood, the secret anti-terrorism unit who took down one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists.
An absorbing chronicle of heroism and humanity, the hardcover of Fearless spent 17 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller List, and also appeared on CBA, Publisher’s Weekly, and USA Today best-seller lists, with more than 165,000 books sold.
The book and Adam Brown’s life has had an extraordinary lasting impact. Eric Blehm and the Brown family have received thousands of letters from people who were inspired by Adam’s story. Songwriter Mark Dowdy wrote a song “Fearless” (available at fearlessnavyseal.com/fearless-the-song/) in which he encourages listeners to be brave, stand tall, and live fearless—just like Adam Brown. The Adam Brown Legacy Foundation 5K Shamrock Run raised over $20,000 to support local charities, and a group of Arkansas divers raised funds and designed a granite memorial that they placed on a rock in Lake Hamilton, just three miles from where Adam Brown is buried. The trade paper edition contains more than 25 letters from readers who were impacted deeply by Adam Brown’s legacy.
UNSTOPPABLE: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action by Nick Vujicic
International motivational speaker Nick Vujicic offers guidance and inspiration to anyone who feels overwhelmed with the burdens of life in Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action
Vujicic was born without arms or legs, but hasn’t allowed his physical challenges to keep him from living a “ridiculously good life.” By focusing on the promises that he was created for a unique and specific purpose, that his life has value and is a gift to others, and that God is always present during times of hardship, Vujicic has overcome his own challenges and now offers that same hope to readers as he encourages them to put their faith into action.
“To have faith is not enough,” writes Vujicic. “You have to exercise your faith, act upon it, and share it so that others are inspired to love God as you do. It’s about having faith in yourself, your talents, your purpose, and most of all, in God’s love and His divine plan for your life.” Through insightful stories from his own life and drawing on inspiration from others, Vujicic offers guidance for dealing with self-destructive thoughts, relationship issues, bullying, career and job challenges, imbalance in body/mind/heart/spirit, and health and disability concerns.

Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators.
When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hind Kush Mountains of Afghanistan—but he was ready. In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.”
Eric Blehm, author of Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown, paid tribute to Navy SEAL and author of American Sniper Chris Kyle. Go here to read Blehm’s post. To watch the live webcast Blehm taped with Kyle last September, go here.
