Publisher's Description

In a physical marathon, the "wall" shows up about mile twenty or twenty-one; when this happens, mind and body shake hands to say "we quit." That's where most runners will shut down, unless they reach down into their identity as spirit. To the question "Who am I; what is my identity?" God's answer is "I am spirit; I have a mind; and I live in a body." So, to break through the "wall" requires a hierarchy of spirit over mind over body. God's Word will address our spirit when mind and body are out of it, thereby setting Word over spirit over mind over body to keep the feet moving. Project this to other marathons: mental, spiritual, emotional, interpersonal, occupational, financial, etc. Bottom line: Can the reader finish the book, put it down, and say: "Wow, look what God's Word performed; I want to be in the Word; I want the Word to be in me"? The closer the reader comes to God's Word, the closer they come to Him (John 1:14). The Word will have become "sent out (Isaiah 55:10-11), active and alive (Hebrews 4:12), watched over and performed" (Jeremiah 1:12) in their lives

Author/Artist Review

Author: CH [LTC, RET] Arthur W. Coffey, Jr., D. Min.

    Tell us a little about yourself.   15yrs. Parish Pastor; 23yrs. Army Chaplain; 12yrs. VAMC Chaplain. Mobilized: Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Joint Endeavor, and the Humanitarian Aid tour to Guatemala.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  This book was born and cradled in the crucible of near-death accident, broken family, loss of job and home, stark medical and mental prognosis, deep, dark depression and excessive misery. As I could hear the hoofbeats of Pharaoh's horses and chariots of bankruptcy drawing close behind me, how would God part my "Red Sea?"

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?   I want the reader to see how God's Word addressed a series of trails and tragedies in my life and turned them into triumphs!

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  My heart grew increasingly closer to His heart as I found myself holding more deeply onto His Word. I found myself rich in Him as I began to see my value not so centered in "who" I am but in "Whose" I am!

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My wife/top theologians A very meaning filled trip to Israel.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Bottom line: Can the reader finish the book, put it down, and say: "Wow, look what God's Word performed; I want to be in the Word; I want the Word to be in me"? The closer the reader comes to God's Word, the closer they come to Him (John 1: 14).The Word will have become "sent out (Isaiah 55: 10-11), active and alive (Hebrews 4: 12), watched over and performed" (Jeremiah 1: 12) in their lives!
