New book: A Door In The Ocean by David McGlynn. The new book A door In The Ocean is a fascinating story where David reflects on the unsolved murder of his closest friend and high school teammate. We thought this new book has a great story line and David does a wonderful job in the new book of dramatizing swims in open water.
A Door In The Ocean by David McGlynn relives an event that shattered peers and led the author into the radical world of evangelical Christianity. A second swimming-related tragedy and the prospect of fatherhood caused McGlynn to question his beliefs.

Here is an excerpt from A Door In The Ocean by David McGlynn:
“In the ocean, I was not afraid, though I had plenty of reason to be. The water was dark and cold, the waves could swell to enormous heights, and no one knew where I was. I didn’t want anyone to know where I was. I wanted to edge away from myself. I’d left everything I owned on shore, and feeling the cold water work its way into the creases of skin beneath my arms and behind my knees, I was reduced to the raw dimensions of my anatomy, all body, no spirit, and so free from the burdens my spirit demanded.”
We hope you enjoy David’s new book!
