About "Running With the Giants"

Leadership expert, John Maxwell gleans timeless principles from the lives of several Old Testament heroes. Noah warns us not to "fear the impossible", David encourages us to overcome adversity, and Rebekah reminds us to give and serve generously.
- Koorong

How would the legendary figures in the Bible advise us today? We're running the race of our lives and it's a long one. We need encouragement along the way-"a cheering grandstand or a personal trainer or two. John Maxwell reminds us that even in a modern world, the greatest inspiration is still found within the pages of the Old Testament. In RUNNING WITH THE GIANTS, Maxwell brings those great personalities to life. David would remind us how to overcome adversity. Noah would tell us not to fear doing the impossible. And Rebekah would urge us to give and serve generously. Each of these and the many other biblical figures Maxwell examines can motivate believers toward their personal best in the marathon of life.
- Publisher

Himself an inspiration to millions through his motivational speeches and bestselling books, John C. Maxwell reaches out to the leading icons of the Old Testament for the life and leadership lessons conveyed in his thought-provoking albeit slim Running with the Giants. Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and a half-dozen other books on the topic, writes here that biblical personalities like Abraham, Joseph, and Moses can provide us with the real "inspiration, wisdom, and empowerment" we need to lead. For example, Maxwell explains, Noah's actions teach us that "one person can make a difference"; he then fleshes out relevant maxims like "Don't be afraid to stand out in a crowd" and "Don't be afraid to do something for the first time" to bring this concept into the 21st century. Likewise, the servant girl from the book of Kings shows us how "one small act can make a big difference," but for it to happen today one must be confident and credible and "speak to people's needs." Those committed to the sources from which Maxwell draws will particularly appreciate his take on the lessons they impart, as well as his athletically inspired theme and contemporary presentation. --Howard Rothman

A Helpful Book for Leadership Development
3 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Mar 03 2015
In this small but power-packed book, leadership guru John C. Maxwell reminds us that in the race of life, we are not alone. We are, in fact, surrounded by a cloud of witnesses who have gone on before us, are cheering us on, and would like to impart to us important lessons they have learned about life and leadership. These witnesses include ten biblical heroes whom Maxwell has judiciously chosen. From each of them, Maxwell distills ten lessons about life and leadership which are simply and clearly explained in his book. These lessons include: (1) "One person can make a difference" (Noah), (2) "God has a place for you" (Esther), (3) "Don't give up on your dream" (Joseph), (4) "Live in the faith zone, not the safe zone" (Moses), (5) "Give generously to others" (Rebekah), (6) "God always does the right thing" (Abraham), (7) "No problem is too big when you have help" (Nehemiah), (8) "One small act can make a big difference" (The Servant Girl of Naaman), (9) "You can overcome the limitations others put on you" (David), and (10) "Strengthen a leader and save a nation" (Jonathan). Accompany every lesson from a biblical hero is a discussion guide which one can use for personal reflection. Maxwell's book is a helpful tool that any pastor or leader can use for leadership development.
