About Enter Wild

“Step into a life gripped by a God who calls you into more—more faith, more freedom, and more victory.”—Levi Lusko, pastor and bestselling author

You are meant to receive the abundance God promises here and now. You are not meant to wait until heaven to experience His best. Even in the midst of our broken world’s traumas and trials, you can 

• learn to lower the volume of life and truly hear God
• experience what it means to speak God’s Word over yourself for real victory
• discover how to pray His promises instead of praying over the problems
 
With his trademark blend of humor and transparency, gifted storyteller Carlos Whittaker shares his personal struggle in coping with crippling anxiety—and how the key to his freedom was rediscovering a wild faith. That key can be yours, helping you open the door to leave mild and enter wild.

Praise

“This book will have you thinking, laughing, praying, and shouting ‘Yes!’ Carlos gives us the key to finding a new level of freedom and the life of faith we’ve wanted to believe was possible. Inspiring and energizing.”—Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church

 “Carlos Whittaker does love like few people I know. His passion and energy inspire me. Enter Wild is an invitation to the next step on our spiritual journey. I want to take that journey with him—and you should too.”—Bob Goff, author of the New York Times bestsellers Love Does and Everybody, Always

“We all experience moments when abundant life seems far off and our faith feels weak. But in those times, Carlos Whittaker reminds us that God offers life to the full. Carlos speaks to what freedom and a plentiful life can look like when we step into our calling of wild faith.”—Sadie Robertson, New York Times bestselling author, speaker, and founder of Live Original

“Carlos and I have been close in each other’s lives for more than fifteen years. Watching God do what Carlos shares in this amazing book has been a thrill. It’s time for you to pull up a chair at the table now and let my buddy Carlos tell you how to Enter Rest, Enter War, and Enter Wild.”—Tyler Reagin, founder and CEO of The Life Giving Company and author of The Life-Giving Leader

“This book should come with a backpack because, when you open it, you’re starting a new adventure! I love that ’Los calls us out of our comfort zones to explore faith in ways that are far beyond average. Buckle up with this one. You’re about to be stretched, challenged, and encouraged!”—Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done

“Brace yourself: Enter Wild pulls no punches. Carlos shares his deliberate journey toward freedom with wit, courage, and candor. I was drawn in from the first page and reminded that experiencing the fullness of God requires a fierce faith; not faith you have to fight for, but faith you’re finally ready to receive. You’ll be forever changed by this book.”—Rebekah Lyons, bestselling author of Rhythms of Renewal and You Are Free

“I believe God is stirring the hearts of believers with a deep dissatisfaction for the status quo. We know there must be more to this Christian life, because the radical and raw stories we read about in Scripture do not match up with our experience. As only Carlos Whittaker can do, he unapologetically calls us to the life that is available as children of God. He takes us on a journey that will inspire and challenge us to pursue the abundant life Christ has paid for. I am grateful for someone who is willing to look at the real issues we are facing and contend for hope. Enter Wild is a call to the life we’re intended to live.”—Banning Liebscher, founder and pastor of Jesus Culture and author of Rooted: The Hidden Places Where God Develops You

“Whittaker challenges readers to slow down and find God’s plan through prayer in this empowering work. . . . Whittaker is at his best when talking about his own process of developing a ‘wild faith.’”—Publishers Weekly

In a Season of Anxiety, Bestselling Author Carlos Whittaker Issues a Call to
Lower the Volume of Life and Discover a Wild and Wondrous Faith

“Whittaker is at his best when talking about his own process of developing a ‘wild faith,’ one fraught with debilitating anxiety but also spiritual highs achieved through prayer. Readers of Levi Lusko will love this inspirational prayer guide.”
— Publishers Weekly

“Carlos helps us move from SAFE and BORING to BOLD and TRUSTING in our relationship with God.”
— Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – In the current global climate of fear, uncertainty, and anxiety, many believers have contented themselves with experiencing life “to the half” rather than the full that Jesus promised in John 10:10. In his new book, Enter Wild: Exchange a Mild and Mundane Faith for Life with an Uncontainable God (WaterBrook, 6/16/20), bestselling author and speaker Carlos Whittaker invites readers to embrace complete healing, to exchange anxiety for amazement, and to abandon worry for wonder.


With his trademark blend of humor and transparency, Whittaker shares his personal struggle in coping with anxiety—and how the key to his freedom was rediscovering a wild faith. He insists that we are meant to receive the abundance God promises here and now. The process, as he explains, follows a simple structure: Enter Rest, Enter War, and Enter Wild. By following this path, Whittaker was able to:
- Find forgiveness and healing from past addictions § Restore and strengthen his marriage
- Experience freedom from crippling anxiety
- Recover broken friendships, and discover how to lead his family well

Amidst incessant news cycles, the barrage of negativity in social media, and an overwhelming sense of global uncertainty, Whittaker’s message of hope is more vital than ever. As he explains, “When we lower the volume of life, the volume of God goes up. And when the volume of God goes up, the chaos begins to calm.”

“Remember,” Whittaker writes, “we are living in a broken world with trauma and trials. And oftentimes, we have to walk through the wilderness in order to truly Enter Wild. But we are able to receive God’s favor and abundance even in the midst of those seasons.”

With suggested prayers included throughout the book and “Reflect and Practice” questions at the end of each chapter, Enter Wild presents the ideal resource for encouraging and guiding weary believers back to a hope-filled, wild faith.
