    1. I could not force myself to finish this book. So take the rating I gave with that in mind.I'm sure this could be a useful book to many, but there are likely to be many, like me, who simply do not connect with the premise: that we must leave and go on a journey in order to experience God and to find out identities. I say this as one who chose to leave a very comfortable life, plenty of friends, to a place of unknown future. I think that at the time of my restlessness I might have found that this [...]

    2. Seth Barnes has written a needed book. It finally brings into focus the missing discipline that can transform us from the inside out like non-other. The book is rife with Aha! moments. The biggest one for me was that restlessness is a gift because it forces us to leave to go on journeys. But there's a caveat, Barnes warnes: "Restlesness is an itch that, if left unscratched, is a curse."Seth Barnes presents life principles through the dozens of stories of people who have heeded the itch. The stor [...]

    3. Easy to read and relevant to my life. Read on a flight as I was leaving my life and moving to do volunteer work with Adventures in Missions in Europe. Very encouraging.

    4. I enjoyed this book. It is a fairly quick read, and very engaging. At its best it is a call for us to embrace our discontented restlessness and step out in faith, away from our comfort zones, and avail ourselves to Christ to be used as agents of transformation in the world. However, at its worst, it may be (mis)understood by some readers as a call to embrace an irresponsible, narcissistic venture into thrill-seeking and slum tourism that ultimately serves vain self-glory rather than the glory of [...]

    5. I found Kingdom Journeys: Rediscovering the Lost Spiritual Discipline a compelling read. I used it for my morning devotional for a couple of weeks after downloading it on the recommendation of a blogger I follow. I was not sure what to expect, but love reading about spiritual disciplines as I seek to grow in my own discipleship of Jesus Christ.No doubt, Seth Barnes is passionate about Kingdom journeys, which he defines primarily as trips to foreign lands where one is compelled to trust God and G [...]

    6. Kingdom Journey's by Seth Barnes is a must read for any parent of a World Racer and their family members. Frankly, it should also be a must read for any World Racer. Barnes explains the heart and purpose of the World Race- and any kingdom journey for that matter while also walking the reader through the process of kingdom journey. As a parent of a Racer, Kingdom Journey armed me with information that will help me counsel my daughter, it gave me information that will help me understand my Racer's [...]

    7. Jesus called his disciples to follow him on a spiritual journey, but also a physical one. Seth Barnes asserts that there's something missing from a typical list of spiritual practices and disciplines. We've forgotten about pilgrimage. Kingdom Journeys promotes embracing "the gift of restlessness," leaving God's call to leave everything behind to go on a literal journey with God. It tells the stories of people, especially youth, who saw their lives transformed by mission trips and other faith-str [...]

    8. "When we abandon the things that give us comfort, God brings us to brokenness, which allows us to unpack the baggage others have saddled on us. We begin to discover our true self. Brokenness.s away the false self. It allows God to transform us into a new creation."When you come to the end of yourself, you are ready to surrender. Kingdom Journeys teaches you how to surrender and experience the pain and choose to stay in it as long as God is in it. As Barnes so aptly reminds us, "the cost of not s [...]

    9. This book grew on me. For the first few chapters I was unimpressed. Kingdom Journeys is a modern-day look at the value of pilgrimage in the life of a follower of Jesus. The author works for Adventures in Mission and uses examples of young adults who have come through his program (and World Race) to show how leaving and journeying helps a person grow in their faith. I don't think short-term trips are all that beneficial for the countries/places that are receiving the short-term missionaries, but [...]

    10. This book is simply jam packed with wisdom, insight and truth from the life experiences of those who were restless and went out seeking more. Incredibly relevant for a generation that has a lot of potential to be irrelevant. This book speaks to the restless soul who knows there is something more but just not sure what that is. A call to passion, a source of empowerment, it breaks down the practical pursuit of passion. An easy read but I would encourage everyone to slow down and really think abou [...]

    11. This book speaks of the literal, physical journeys many people have made on their path to follow Christ. There's something about seeing the world outside of your own that gives you a sense of the bigger picture. Since I have a husband, full time teaching job, and three busy children, it soon became apparent that an actual journey would be impossible right now. But as I read I began to think of close to home "journeys," such as volunteer work. The stories and ideas ruminated in my mind for a coup [...]

    12. Kingdom Journeys made some really good points and had some great "highlighter" moments. The personal stories from various people were incredible. However, I felt like the writing style was a little choppy and repetitive, and many of the chapters and sub-chapters could have been condensed, absorbed into other chapters, or eliminated entirely. Sometimes there didn't seem to be an overall driving force or narrative, and I felt like I was reading a bunch of blog posts mashed together. I definitely a [...]

    13. Feel the yearning to travel? Has your life become mundane wanting more? Do you want to bring value and purpose to your life? If you have answered yes then you need to read this book. Kingdom Journeys is written with a personal touch and experience. Get ready to be charged with an inner desire to do something for the Kingdom through a personal relationship and walk with the command of the Lord. Read this.

    14. Fascinating and challenging. Seth Barnes, founder of Adventures in Missions, explains how God uses journeys out of our normal situations to bring us to surrender and brokenness. Don't agree with everything in it but there is a lot here to learn. Our son is currently on one of AIM's World Race journeys and we're really anxious to see what God does in his life through this.

    15. Kingdom Journeys is a book about stepping outside of your comfort zone. It's about wanting a different life and giving up something in order to do it. The stories of people who have done so are very encouraging and helpful. If you want a push to look at the world differently, than this book is for you.

    16. Missions Short and Long TermReading this helps me to get a glimpse of friends and family members who are on the "mission field" in other lands. We're all part of a "Kingdom Journey", wether abroad or here in the U.S. A very excellent ebook. Thank You Mr. Barnes.

    17. i enjoyed the book and agreed with most of what the author had to stay about journeys and the value of dependence on God. my only issue is the insistence on the necessity of the journey. some of us are called to stay put, and sometimes not going requires just as much faith

    18. What an awesome eye opening look at our journey with God. This book set afire a new prayer in my heart for myself, as well as for my son! Thank-you Seth!
