When you begin the Christian life, you're driven by passion, energy, and zeal. But what does it take to reach spiritual maturity and finish well? Challenging you to live fully to the glory of God, this father-and-son team helps you stay young while your body ages, invest in the younger generation, deal with suffering, and more. 160 pages, softcover from Moody.
Dr. George Sweeting's How to Begin the Christian Life revealed a plan for success in starting new lives of purpose in pursuit of Christ. Now he and his son Donald Sweeting present How to Finish the Christian Life, a guide that gives mature believers a new set of disciplines and encouraging truths to help them finish well.
Retirement from a career should never be mistaken for an absence of purpose. On the foundation of his own ministry that continues to thrive, Dr. Sweeting and his son deliver an inspiring message that the end of the believer's journey is not a matter of dying but a challenge to live to the fullest to the glory of God.
When it comes to the life of a true follower of Christ, there is only one way to finish: strong.
