At a young age, Gordon MacDonald recognized that he had inherited a "quitter's gene," and because of this-and an influential track coach-he began a lifelong quest for answers. "Why," he had to ask, "do some people finish what they start, persevere in moments of adversity, push themselves in the direction of their potential, and often make their greatest contributions in the latter half of life? Why do others expect to retire from life when they reach their senior years?" The key element in those who don't quit is resilience. Those who have it, MacDonald insists, have gathered all the lessons from life-successes and failures-to build a foundation of strength and character, preparing them to face anything. Using examples from the Bible, from his own life, and from the lives of contemporary people, MacDonald identifies the characteristics of resilience, leading readers through the self-assessment needed to develop them. The journey is demanding and humbling, he reminds us, but the rewards of living well are immeasurable.

?It makes little difference how fast you can run the 100 meters when the race is 400 meters long. Life is not a sprint; it is a distance run, and it demands the kind of conditioning that enables people to go the distance.?

?Gordon MacDonald




Running Strong




Whose heart doesn?t leap at the sight of a beautifully

conditioned runner, effortlessly gliding along, stride-bystride, mile-by-mile? And what runner gets to this place without a thankless?and often lonely'regimen of strategy and self-denial?




Isn?t this the perfect metaphor of what your heart is longing for?running life's race with intentionality and grace? With strength and focus?




Well, you can. Veteran pastor and best-selling author Gordon MacDonald says you must develop resilience?the courage and ability to get up when you fall, to keep running when you're bone-weary, and to keep your eye on the goal even in the murkiest moments. Using the backdrop of his own experiences as a champion runner, MacDonald demonstrates how resilient people




Practice spiritual self-discipline to build stamina and grit; Know what's up ahead, what obstacles they will likely face; and Bond with special friends who share their commitment to finishing well.

Because he has also run many long, punishing laps in the tough race of life, MacDonald is uniquely qualified to coach and encourage you in developing that resilient spirit?to weather adversity, to finish what you start, and to never be satisfied with anything short of God's best for you.
