If you thought being a missionary meant wearing socks and sandals and living in the jungle without a shower, think again.
Not long out of uni, Levi headed for Japan with all his essentials: his Bible and Frisbee. He was just a normal bloke with a passion for Ultimate Frisbee who stepped out boldly to tell people about Jesus.
Ultimate Grace is his journey to East Asia the ups, the downs, the adventures and joining the Japanese national Ultimate Frisbee team!
What they say about Ultimate Grace
‘Ultimate Grace is a delightfully ordinary book, and therein lies both its charm and its bite!
….The point of his book is simple yet powerful: God might just want to use us as the people he made us to be, with our history, passions, interests, opportunities, etc (all that we are), to make Christ known.’
‘I really enjoyed the book. I found it very relatable in a number of ways… especially the way he views the two life paths in chapter 3, one a comfortable life, with the other more unpredictable and dangerous – one of following God. The second one though also brings you close to God and seems both exciting and scary…’

‘The only way to live the Christian life is to be gripped by grace. Levi Booth came to realise this fact as a teenager and it led him to a life he did not plan. But it was a life he would never give up.
In this short book, Levi shares his story of how God used different people and a variety of experiences to shape his life and prepare him for a unique mission. How could a love of Ultimate Frisbee, Jackie Chan and anime possibly come together and be used by God to help spread the gospel? Ultimate Grace shows that whatever your situation, or whatever your passions, God can use them to fulfil his own gospel purpose.’
