Third Day guitarist Mark Lee is no stranger to heartache and hopes deferred; the road to success is never traveled without missteps along the way. Life is messy and uncertain and full of surprises. And one of the best things he's ever done is let go of his expectations about how life should be in order to embrace life as it is: a moment-by-moment walk with God.
Hurt Road is the engaging true story of a man who, as a teen, found in music a refuge from the uncertainties of life. Who set out to discover a better way to live than constantly struggling to make sure life turned out the way he planned it. Who stopped substituting what's next for what's now and learned the truth--that coming or going, God's got us.
Poignant, funny, and thoughtful, Hurt Road dares anyone feeling knocked down or run over by their circumstances to give up control to the One who already has the road all mapped out. Includes black and white photos.

When I found out I had a chance to read and review Mark Lee's book Hurt Road I was super excited. I am a fan of Third Day and have loved their music for quite some time. Reading about Mark's life over the years was eye opening. I connected with this book on multiple levels. As a Christian learning about his ups and downs in life along with some trails and tribulations was inspiring. As a fan I was intrigued to find out how the band came together. As a musician I have a new found fire to play for Christ.
There are parts in the book that brought tears to my eyes. Like when I read about some of the tragedy that his family had to endure. The pages are a reminder that no matter who you are there are tough times in life but God will help us through.
I gave this book 5 stars and would give it more if I could. I highly recommend this book.
