New book by George Shamblin, ministry team member with The Center for Executive Leadership!
The Bible is laden with stories of those who’ve carried the baton before us, who’ve stumbled, who’ve persevered. It’s equally laden with stories of God’s chosen people falling-away from their faith often in the space of just a few short years.
In The Relay, Shamblin catalogs the comparative successes and failures of nine individuals in passing-along their faith to the next generations from the father of all failure (Adam) to the ultimate Spirtual Rags To Riches success (Paul). At the center of his book, not only thematically but literally (chapter six of eleven), is Jesus Christ, whose followers took the race to a whole new level and a whole new arena.
While a relay makes for an apt metaphor for passing-along our faith, Shamblin concludes, our goal as Christians is not to win a race but to win the world. More than a message of profound affirmation, The Relay is a triumph of practical How-To advice for anyone looking to take their own journey with the Lord to the next level and beyond.
