My wife and I have known Gordon and his wife for many years and we know that he is speaking truth with integrity in this book. In our leadership training small group we have selected this book as being the best book on leadership to read and absorb. One member of the group gave a copy of the book as a Christmas gift to his employer. His employer, in turn, was so impressed by what Gordon has written that he purchased copies to give to all his employees.
Excellent practical and enjoyable to read. It helped my husband and I with concrete steps to "finishing well" The challenge to "fight the good fight" all the way to the end is daunting. McDonald's insights were so useful we are not using this book in a small group discussion
"A Resilient Life" gives the reader an encouragment to pursue excellence in his/her Christian Life. It is a book geared for the Christian who is serious in living for God. It is practical and MacDonald approaches his topic with a conversational style that makes you evaluate yourself and he lets you see what he is thinking. Its a great book! As a pastor, this has motivated me not only to get back up when I fall but to run with resilience and dedication for God.
