Wherever the River Runs: How a Forgotten People Renewed My Hope in the Gospel by Kelly Minter

Goodreads | Amazon
This beautiful journey through the Amazon invites readers to search their souls and follow Jesus wherever the river runs – experiencing the adventure of knowing the poor and forgotten people He loves.

In Wherever the River Runs, Kelly Minter invites us on a jungle adventure down a river teeming with piranhas, caymans, a beautiful people, and, especially, God’s presence. Her honest and engaging narrative pulls back the curtain on one of the most captivating places on earth as well as on parts of the gospel we may be able to recite but have never fully believed.

For anyone feeling complacent in their American Christianity, Kelly’s story of the forgotten people of the Amazon and how they transformed her understanding of the gospel is sure to inspire.

Kelly Minter’s Wherever the River Runs is nothing less than a life-changing adventure. She takes her readers along for a wild, wondrous ride through the Amazon, as she recounts her experiences with its forgotten, yet beautiful people that challenged and changed her. These people she encountered live so differently than the typical American, yet they live with inspiring purpose and simple determination and have much to offer in surprising and unexpected ways. Incredible.

As I read story after well-written story, I felt captivated and convicted. While Minter’s stories and reflections are deeply and uniquely hers, her revelations and conclusions still speak convincingly to a broader Christian experience and bring essential, often neglected truths to the forefront. These will not be easily forgotten, and I know they will continue to remind me of the importance of worshipping God through loving and serving the impoverished and the neglected.

Valuable, insightful and honest, Minter’s narrative should not be missed. Don’t hesitate to join her for a trip along the Amazon. I highly recommend it.
