"Imagine this: an auditorium packed to the rafters with thousands of hand-raising energetic fans rocking out to a live band. But it's no ordinary concert: it's a weekly spiritual experience with more than 50 million people participating all over the world. That band is called Hillsong United." --TODAY

Have you ever questioned love?

Have you ever questioned faith?

Have you ever questioned the reason you exist?

Joel Houston, the American Music and Billboard award-winning musician, songwriter, pastor of Hillsong NYC and front-man with the world-renowned Hillsong United, chronicles in candid vulnerability some of the unexpected struggles he navigated on his unlikely personal and spiritual journey.

The world knows Joel as one of today's most influential Christian recording artists and the pen behind such beloved songs as "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)." Yet few of the many who sing the songs know just how intrinsic Houston's own personal and spiritual odyssey has been, giving shape and form to the very sound and words that have come to resonate with believers and unbelievers alike across the spectrum of culture.

Joel takes readers on a candid journey of vulnerability through his own struggles with fear and insecurity. His words and his story challenge us to tear through the stereotypes, constructs, misunderstandings and blinding perspectives that so often leave us crippled, clinging for dear life to the very things we need to let go of, all because we're too afraid to step into the mystery.

The true wonder and beauty of life requires letting go of our expectations, and embracing the profound foolishness of the greatest mystery of all: love. By stepping into The Great Unknown, we will find what a beautiful life we have been called to live, when we trust God to lead us into our calling and beyond our fear.
