What others are saying about “Walking When You’d Rather Fly: Meditations on Faith After the Fall”
“Intelligence and wit, learning and everyday language…”
She’s simply got it. What is ‘it’? It’s that mix or winsome recipe of intelligence and wit, of learning and everyday language, of scholarship and paraphrase. She has a way with words and an imagination that invites readers to see the familiar in a new or different light.

“Packs a lot of truth into one small book…”
Amy Clemens packs a lot of truth into one small book, Walking When You’d Rather Fly. She takes readers with her on a transformative journey through parts of her own story, using timeless truths from Scripture and beautiful lyrics that she’s written. From dark places where her soul was imprisoned, through various relationships, to freedom in Christ; this journey offers hope to those who find themselves on a similar journey. It offers insight and understanding to those who are called to journey alongside. The images of falling, flying, and walking linger; offering the opportunity to believe that walking, even falling, can be flying when holding the hand of our loving and sovereign Lord.

“Will challenge fatalistic and legalistic concepts of faith…”
Longing for eagle’s wings, Amy finds herself increasingly earthbound. This book courageously shares hard stories of abuse, betrayal and divorce, and the struggle to find inner freedom. Amy never stops asking the questions that ultimately bring her closer to a more honest view of self and God. This book will challenge fatalistic and legalistic concepts of faith and help the reader see the overwhelming, never-ending love of a God who is all about redemption.”
