Wisdom Chaser: Finding My Father at 14,000 Feet

Reviewed by John Ruhle.

WISDOM CHASER is a candid look at what life was like growing up with a famous father.

The book follows the true journey of father and son as they set out on an ambitious plan to climb many mountain peaks and ranges within their home state of Colorado.

These expeditions provide a backdrop for the rediscovery of a lost relationship between father and son and also the
rediscovery of a relationship between God and the author.

Mr Foster shares about his struggles with alcohol and the impact this has on his life, relationships and faith.

“I have become convinced that I am a few bad choices away from becoming just about any kind of person.

My propensity for destruction remains my greatest fear,” said Mr Foster.

While recognising this, the book then also offers hope for all people who struggle with doubts, addictions and questions of faith.

Wisdom Chaser is one of the best books I have read in ages – it is real, it is funny, it is faithfilled and it is full of challenges.

It is a book that I will go out of my way to recommend for my mates to read.
