For many people, Christianity has become an institution of rules, duty, and potlucks. But for filmmaker Darren Wilson, his life of cultural Christianity changed radically when a powerful encounter with God led him to begin making films that attempted to display the God of the Bible in living color. What happened over the next ten years has affected millions around the world, and has set fires ablaze in hearts that have long sat dormant.
God Adventures is an honest and compelling book about the events surrounding the making of these powerful films (Finger of God, Furious Love, Father of Lights, Holy Ghost, and Holy Ghost Reborn), and is designed to take you into a deeper, more fulfilling and, yes, riskier relationship with God.Like Darren’s films, this book focuses on:
- God’s miraculous power and overpowering love.
- A Father desperately pursuing His children.
- The often misunderstood third Person of the Trinity and His relationship to the modern believer.
- God’s dominance over other gods and supernatural powers.
- How the Holy Spirit wants to use everyone to bring change and healing to the world, not just professional ministers.
Christianity was never meant to be a social club—it was meant to change the world. God Adventures provides biblical insight for the supernatural occurrences documented in Darren’s films, along with behind-the-scenes stories that will inspire, engage, and challenge you to not settle for less than experiencing all of God.
Darren Wilson is an extremely important voice in this hour. He is a man of integrity, with an all too rare quality—he is willing to takes risks. I love that willingness because out of that has come wonderful films and books that help disciple a generation in the supernatural lifestyle, naturally. But it’s the way he trains that I think is so brilliant: it’s through adventure. I have no doubt that this book, God Adventures, will once again inspire and train all of us to live the lifestyle that Jesus intended for us. Read and be challenged and changed.

I have great respect for Darren Wilson both as an artist and, more importantly, as a man of God. He chases God the way a songwriter chases a melody, with passion and purpose. He’s not afraid to tackle difficult, thorny issues—all because of his desire to know God better and make Jesus famous through everything he creates.
— Michael W. Smith, singer and songwriter
I have had the pleasure of knowing Darren Wilson for a few years now and was honored to work with him on a couple of his projects. Whenever I get around Darren, I feel my faith and my hunger to know God rise more. And that is exactly what his new book God Adventures will do for you! To hear such incredible stories of the faithfulness and love of Jesus is both inspiring and provoking.
— Kim Walker-Smith, singer and songwriter
I’m going to quote Darren from his own book, God Adventures, because I believe it to be important. “God is bigger than our religious bickering about how we minister.” In this day and age, it would be a shame to miss this, and this book goes a long way in helping you understand that fact.
— Marc Ford, singer, songwriter, and former lead guitarist for The Black Crowes
I have personally witnessed Darren Wilson find a deep level of friendship with God through the progression of films that he has produced and my friendship with him. You will find this book a valuable resource for your own spiritual formation. Darren is not just a film-maker—he is a friend of God.

God Adventures is a true journey on how to see God direct everyday opportunities into becoming miraculous events that reach beyond human ability. Darren Wilson is the real deal and this book is a must read for anyone desiring to encounter the supernatural!
— Robby Dawkins, minister and evangelist
Step into the world of the supernatural with Darren Wilson’s new book, God Adventures. A skeptic at first, Darren masterfully takes us on a journey of the undeniable, transforming power of God and how it changed his life. This book could radically alter your walk with God, taking you from the outer court of a boring existence to the holy place of divine encounters. I highly recommend it.
—Kris Vallotton, Senior Associate Leader, Bethel Church, Redding, CA, and co-founder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry
Darren Wilson’s honest search to capture the mysteries of God on film has moved many faith mountains for Christians who are just not satisfied with a diluted description of Christ. Darren has a calling to move seeking believers away from the idea that Jesus is “just another historical mythical character,” and he allows the Holy Spirit (through his films and ministry) to kick-start them into knowing Jesus as their true and loving God and Savior. Transcribing his experiences and face-to-face meetings with God from the big screen onto paper is the logical next step to expand the legacy of a “normal guy” who wouldn’t settle for a man-made god. His tangible experiences will pull you into the miraculous, and his testimony will be a weapon in your arsenal against the enemy. As Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”

Darren Wilson has always painted the portrait of God in a way that is easily understood by anyone and Darren just goes for it and asks the tough questions that everyone wants answers to. Even when there isn't an answer we learn that it's okay. His films and books have always given me more faith in who the God of the Bible is. They've personally brought me my own breakthrough. Thanks to the people who put all this together and to the best story teller himself, God!
