Awake to a faith that has no bounds
What's the biggest problem with the American Dream? You have to be asleep.
But all over the country, people are waking up. More than a house, a car, and 2.5 kids, what we truly yearn for is a life of possibility, potential, and adventure. We believe God is able to do more than we hope or imagine, but we're stuck living in the tension between our ordinary life and the extraordinary adventures that might be just around the corner.
In this energizing book, globe-trotting former athlete Aaron Tredway offers liberation from a life without purpose, calling us to pursue lives of unexpected opportunity amid our everyday circumstances. Entertaining, engaging, and often unconventional, Outrageous challenges us to wake up and embrace a faith that can move us, shape us, and propel us to love God and others with greater significance.

"Some speakers inspire. Some writers inspire. Few can switch-hit with the same results. Aaron Tredway can and does in these amazing races--twenty-four chapters of outrageous adventures around the world. Honest--I read half of these page-turning stories to my wife and we both agreed--Outrageous is the perfect book for family, friends, colleagues, and clients. Whew! The stories are incredible, like 'Sleep in the Middle,' or 'Son of the King,' or 'Jeśus Calling' (my favorite). Aaron's heart for God and every soul on the planet shines through. Outrageous touched my heart."
John Pearson, author of Mastering the Management Buckets
"Outrageous is a very entertaining, exciting, and encouraging read on the phenomenal things that can and will happen when we are willing to let go of fear and doubt and boldly go where God leads us. After reading Aaron's book, I am even more convinced that a Christ-centered life is the only way we can have life more abundantly. If you have doubts that God can make the impossible possible, read Outrageous: Awake to the Unexpected Adventures of Everyday Faith, because Aaron Tredway's life will make you reconsider!"
Jerod Cherry, three-time Super Bowl champion; cohost of The Really Big Show on ESPN Cleveland
"This book ends with a simple but profound question, 'What do you have to lose?' I had been a Christian since I was twelve but did not become a Christ-follower until I was forty. Everything, everything changed . . . life became fuller, not easy . . . became joyful even in hardship . . . became content but not necessarily comfortable . . . became peaceful even in the midst of uncertainty. My life began an Outrageous journey and that is the only way to experience real life. All the important relationships in my life have exploded to a deeper level of love and commitment--my wife, my children, my friends. I even began to love my enemies. Why? Because I began to see the clear message and journey that Aaron so vividly describes in Outrageous. This culture promotes the prosperity of comfort, chasing after riches, and entitlement. But Jesus says 'whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?' Outrageous is a must-read because you will ask yourself the question, 'What do you have to lose?' . . . and in the process you might find life, and life more than abundant!"
Dr. Jeff Duke, creator and author of 3 Dimensional Coaching
"Aaron Tredway, in his book Outrageous, takes us with him on a wild adventure and an exhilarating ride involving people, sports, culture, and spirituality. Aaron is one who knows how God takes ordinary people like us and allows us to experience life like we could never have imagined! You'll love Outrageous."
