The best things we do in life, tend to be the hardest. Yet most of us put off difficult tasks, decisions and conversations – we all tend to be escapists.

This book shows us how a bigger, better picture of Jesus will transform us. Our panic and tendency to avoid difficult things can be replaced with joyful, get-things-done confidence and proactivity when we depend on God’s power.

If you avoid difficult things but want to change, this book is for you.

We have made escapism a contact sport. We have so many devices and distractions to keep us busy from an involved life. This book is easy to read, full of self-deprecating humour with plenty of practical examples of people like you and me. Reading a book on escaping escapism is the easy bit, but Dave explores the wisdom contained in Scripture and a relationship with God to help us in our daily lives. This is a hopeful and encouraging book.

What a fine and useful book! It is a really helpful combination of contemporary perception, Biblical insight, practical advice, and an attractive and compelling style. I had not realised my own brilliant escapist ability until I read this book: and it also gave me Biblical and Christ-centred hope!

Refreshingly honest and regularly funny, Dave helps us to develop Christ-like, everyday courage by exposing our escapist hearts to who Jesus really is. However you might be seeking to escape from reality this wonderful book will help you return with real joy to the Good News that we so often fail to let determine every part of our lives.
