In a road race it doesn't matter if you stumble at the start or lag behind the leaders. Finishing is what matters! Similarly, endurance means hanging in there for your family and Lord. Learn how to avoid the common pitfalls that knock you out of the race, and you'll "go the distance" with character and honor.
Bestselling author Steve Farrar has good news for the average man: it doesn't matter if you've had a great start in the Christian life, or a rough one. It doesn't matter if you've stumbled time and again, or even fallen flat on your face. What matters most in this all-important race of life is how you finish. According to Farrar, the man who hangs in there for the long haul with his wife, his kids, and his Lord is an exception these days. Finishing Strong, now in trade paperback, offers lively use of Scripture, contemporary illustrations, and study questions to equip every reader to be that exception. For the man who wants to climb the character ladder more than the corporate one, this is an essential tool.
