Packed with hunting and fishing stories from Alaska to Zimbabwe and outdoor adventures from the Antarctic to the jungles of Brazil, outdoorsman and 33-year Veteran Scott Lemasters invites you on a journey into a deeper relationship with our Eternal Trailblazer, Jesus Christ, in Hunt of a Lifetime: An Outdoorsman’s Journey to Prayer.
With a forward from Steve Chapman, author of A Look at Life from a Deer Stand (more than 300,000 copies sold), Scott shares numerous personal adventures and accounts from Teddy Roosevelt, Sir Earnest Shackleton, Hugh Glass and others to invite you on the Hunt of a Lifetime.
Hunt of a Lifetime is a book for outdoorsmen that will encourage and challenge them to surrender control of their lives to Jesus Christ and commit time to talk with Him each day through prayer. Weaving hunting and fishing stories together, the book whets a reader’s appetite to go on the ultimate hunt—connecting with their Creator. After all, true outdoorsmen are inspired by nature and, whether we recognize it or not, God is calling out to us through the mountains and forests and streams and creatures that He made for us.
Through seven short chapters and 30-days of scripture-based, daily devotions, Hunt of a Lifetime challenges you to step out of your comfort zone into territories unexplored. No matter where you are on your journey with our Eternal Trailblazer, Scott prays this book will bring you to a deeper and lasting relationship with the Fisher of Men. Take this opportunity to reach out and simply let the Lord be your Guide. What an extraordinary adventure He has planned for you!
A message from Scott: “This book should come with a warning label because I firmly believe—for anyone who asks God to be their Guide—God will pursue that request without fail. If you seek Him and ask Him to help you surrender your will to Him, He will do it! And while you’ll experience joy, peace, and grace in the process, it will also be a struggle as the Holy Spirit brings you to a fuller understanding of what it means to follow Christ. If you’re patient with yourself and dedicated to following our Eternal Trailblazer, your life will become ‘one great romance, a glorious opportunity for seeing marvelous things all the time,’ so eloquently put by Oswald Chambers.
God wants to complete us. He has a target in mind, and we simply can’t get there without putting Him first in our lives. God bless.”
