The Extravagant Fool (Zondervan, 2014)

The Extravagant Fool is a deep dive into the reality of Kevin Adams. You will follow him as he goes from a successful businessman to the depths of despair during the recession. Yet, through it all he learns an important lesson: sometimes you don’t have all the answers and you need to simply and fully trust God.

The book read much like a journal into the everyday life of Kevin and his journey through challenging times. A few lessons I picked up on while reading this book are:

  1. What we often fear isn’t as bad as we think it is (we just value things that really don’t matter)
  2. You can fully trust God even during the most difficult challenges

While there are more lessons to learn then this, the Extravagant Fool is a bare all story from Kevin’s own journey. Wether you’ve been through similar trials or you just want to learn a better way to face future trials, you’ll find just the encouragement you need in this book.
