Restless and rudderless. That's how Paul Hawker felt, mid-40s, mid-life, mid-career. Despite his success as a tv documentary film maker, his wonderful family and enviable lifestyle, he still felt pangs of melancholy. What he needed, he decided, was an opportunity to stretch himself both physically and spiritually. And so, with all the necessary mountain gear and enough food for 40 days, he set out alone into the treacherous Tararua Mountains in New Zealand. Soul Survivor is a passionately honest account of Paul Hawker's attempt to hear God's voice and obey it. His quest brought him moments of exhilaration and remarkable spiritual insight...and moments of near disaster. His book is not only a great adventure story but also a remarkable account of a spiritual search to satisfy all who long for a deeper reality in life. Quotations in the margins from writers, philosophers and spiritual guides also provide food for thought throughout the book.
