"The Leap did exactly what the author promised; it "interrupted [my] process of growing old gracefully." I was moved to tears while reading the prologue alone and knew God purposefully placed this book in my hands . . . The Leap will challenge you to take a leap into the unknown and anxiously anticipate a tremendous adventure. I highly encourage you to take a risk, beginning with reading The Leap, for it may very well transform your way of thinking and your way of living."       (Jill Bastian)

"My great friend, Lon Garber has written this wonderful book, The Leap. He shares his ongoing journey of answering his life calling to minister to the poor and raise up spiritual leaders in Namibia, Africa. Using his unique sense of humor, Lon recounts the joys, frustrations, and sometimes dangerous road that has taken him from a safe, comfortable existence in Florida to developing leaders in Africa. He challenges us to patiently listen for where God wants us and then trust Him to take us there."     (Denise McDonald)

"I read The Leap in three sittings yesterday! I couldn't put it down. Really good heartfelt stuff from someone actually living in the moment. Even though I've read at least a thousand other Christian "how-to" books, Lon shares some fresh insights into how God works and can work in our lives, if we show up and get out of the way."     (Steve Bruton)

"I get the most out of books that weave teaching into a story and this book shines in that respect. The Leap illustrates how God removes obstacles when people answer his call no matter how irrational it may seem. God used an incredible set of circumstances to bring Lon and his wife to their work in Namibia. If you sense God calling you to do something and it doesn't make sense, I encourage you to read this book. My faith was strengthened by seeing how God worked out myriad details in Lon's calling."


"I appreciated Lon's summary at the end of the book that provides application from his personal story. He clearly has a strong gift for teaching that I believe many who read his book will benefit from.  Lastly I appreciated his candor. He is not afraid to talk about his mistakes, lack of trust in God, impatience and fears. It is comforting to know that pastors suffer from the same doubts that all of us do."   (John Mann)
