The Relay - Passing Along Your Faith

In The Relay, George 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 Spiritual 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. 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.


The Relay | Behind The Book

With Author George Shamblin

I just finished reading the book THE RELAY. It is a book filled with a various biblical characters and describes their successes and failures. It is filled with great quotes and incredible stories of those who have run the race in our more modern times as well. Shamblin uses these lessons to encourage us to accept our responsibility and to entrust the faith and God‘s word to the next generation. He challenges us to endure the hardships and to continue to run the race before us. We will then be able to enjoy the fulfillment of completing our purpose and seeing and savoring our Savior one day. I encourage you to read the book, to run the race and to relay the truth to the next generation. Our world is depending on it.

George is a passionate evangelist. His passion comes through in person as it does through this book. We all sometimes need encouragement to be more active in sharing our faith. The Relay provides that much needed encouragement.

This book creates a sense of urgency for leaving a legacy. Will people know Christ by the way that I’ve lived my life? I hope so. George’s words are inspiring and relatable. I’m excited to share this book with my small group. Bravo, George!
