What some are saying about Out of the Blue

What you’re about to read is a celebration of what it looks like to be lowered through the roof to the feet of Jesus. But here’s the thing: Greg isn’t the guy on the stretcher; he’s the guy on the roof with a couple of ropes around us.

How many people do you know who embrace absolutely everything? Even cancer.

When I met Greg Murtha, I realized I was gazing into the eyes of the person I wanted to become. Brave, intelligent, funny, confident, and faithful, Greg embraces a complete acceptance of his fate with pure joy and excitement. Knowing him is a beautiful gift. You, too, will feel that and be incredibly inspired after reading Out of the Blue.

Greg Murtha is a man after God’s own heart. Out of the Blue will inspire you to embrace interruptions, listen to the Holy Spirit, and say, yes. It is when we say yes, as Greg has done, that God turns everyday life into an unexpected adventure.

We read every word of Out of the Blue. What a gift! Greg, because of your faithfulness, we’re going to be more aware, more interruptible, more focused on others, more vulnerable, more audibly prayerful with others, more scraped, bruised, and used up sliding into death—giving God alone the glory.

This powerful book is a humbling and honest account of a great man whose life was interrupted by cancer. It’s an affirming message of hope that traces the steps of Greg’s journey to the foot of Calvary’s cross. Out of the Blue is a great tool, especially if you are struggling with slowing down or finding the simplicity in loving and following Christ.
