Walking with God gets you from where you are to where God wants you to be.
Standing still is not an option in your relationship with God. Growing in Christ means you re onthe move; it is a process of learning to walk into greater spiritual maturity.
God is inviting you to get in step with what he is doing in the world. When you walk with him, you allow him to set the pace for every aspect of your life. And as you walk through the five stages of spiritual growth, you will be transformed by biblical wisdom and God's direction, by the challenge of investing in others, and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Let Shaun Alexander show you how to embark on the greatest adventure of your life. When you start walking through life with God, you will have an unprecedented impact on others.

“I have profound respect for people who are better in person than they are in public. That is Shaun Alexander. He doesn’t just talk the talk; he walks the walk. And that is what this book is all about.”
—Mark Batterson, best-selling author of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day
“Shaun Alexander is an inspiration to those going through the ‘walk’ that we call our daily lives. His insight and wisdom will cause readers to look deep inside and seek after God. His candor and spiritual maturity teach us how to live happier, more purpose-filled lives. Once you start reading this book, you won’t be able to put it down.”

It presents a picture of God we can connect with every day. From math tests to touchdowns, Shaun’s incredible insights and personal stories will give you the practical tools you need to navigate through life’s biggest challenges.”

“Shaun Alexander has been a model and a blessing to countless young people in the Communities In Schools program, offering students hope for a future. When Shaun writes about those who are Examples—‘people who actually live what they claim to believe’—I see his face and hear his voice.”
—Bill Milliken, founder and vice-chairman of Communities In Schools Inc. and author of The Last Dropout and Tough Love
“Ever since I first met Shaun at the Senior Bowl, I have been impressed by his consistency, his humility, and his teachable spirit. I have watched him mature as he has learned to live out his faith. This book will take you through some of the same steps he took in that growth process, and I know you will be challenged and blessed.”
—Carey Casey, CEO of the National Center for Fathering and author of Championship Fathering
“Shaun lives with integrity and honor in the public eye. But it’s the life he lives when no one is watching that amazes us. His relationship with God and intimate knowledge of the Scriptures have given him a strong foundation for his entire life. With The Walk, Shaun makes these insights available to people of all walks of life in order to deepen their walk with God.”
—John and Lisa Bevere, authors, international speakers, and cofounders of Messenger International
“The greatness of Shaun Alexander running downfield with a football is but a glimpse of the greatness he walks in without a football. This man of God has written a phenomenal book that can spark the greatness in all of us. The Walk will allow us to start our walk toward a much better world, right from where we are.”
