    One thought on “Finishing Strong: Going the Distance for Your Family”

    1. I recommend this for every, I mean every Christian to read!!!If you don't want to read any book, this should be the only one you read.

    2. I give this book a great deal of credit for the strength of my marriage today. No marriage is bullet proof. This book is more than a flak jacket, it is a guide to how to stay away from anywhere that there are even any guns. A great read that I highly recommend.

    3. I picked up Finishing Strong from a free giveaway shelf last week. I love the adventure of trying a book that I didn't deliberately choose nor pay anything for. My expectations of this book were not high. I assumed I was in for a quick review of basic advice for righteous living. I hoped that it wouldn't be full of references to sports and assumptions that Christian men are mindless. I was a little worried when the first sentence of the Acknowledgments opens like this: "Basketball, football, and [...]

    4. Who'd have thought that some of the godly men mentioned in the "hall of faith" in Hebrews were NOT strong finishers? Steve makes a compelling case of what it means to finish strong, drawing from scripture and illustrated with personal experience and infused with intriguing historical and biblical references. Well worth the read and a great challenge to every man who values their role as husband, father, family and community leader.

    5. Inspiring and it's a book for every man who wants to finish strong not only himself but with his house holdally love this book.

    6. Read the book once and has decided to keep reading it every year. It has really opened my eyes to quite a number of life issues. God bless Steve Farrar

    7. This was an excellent reminder of what a man's priorities must be if he is to live as a follower of Christ and provide leadership to his family throughout the years.

    8. This is by far the most thought provoking book I've read about vision. Vision for your life. Vision for your kids. Vision for you wife. Vision for staying the course and finishing strong in the Christian race. I strongly recommend this book to all men who not only want to finish strong but also want to do right by their families.

    9. This book was very difficult to read, and, I’m sorry to say, ultimately unsatisfying. Farrar is not a very good writer. It had its moments, and some very interesting stories, but its encouragement and message were painfully diluted with an unclear thesis and loose and undefined terminology. It took until the last chapter for the author to clearly and concisely define what the words “finish strong” actually meant to him. I agree with him on some counts, and disagree with him on others. He s [...]

    10. Finishing strong is a choice. Christian men need to wake up and spend more time fine-tuning their character than making all the money in the world. The world seeks men of character and purpose for those are the ones that make lasting impact in this world. We are the light of the world and salt of the earth.To raise respectable families, the man must WATCH his children grow and set for them good examples. The race must be run with two principles in mind.1. Run the race with endurance.2. Run the r [...]

    11. A great read that will make a strong impression on you, concerning the need to finish the difficult race of life, for yourself, your career and your family. I however didn't find the book relevant in the areas where it focused on the lure of fornication and adultery as the primary dangers men are to flee from. Our generation faces a different form of the same devil, namely pornography and fornication. Probably this classic has to be updated for current times.

    12. It's a quick read as it's definitely written in simple language. It's loaded with quotations and repetition, but in the end it does make some great points about living a Christian life and being successful to the end. The biggest takeaways from this book for me are: have a vision for your life and follow through, stay away from women who are not your wife, be on the lookout for the devil he's out to get you and he's very patient.

    13. i cant give this book anything less than 5 stars, the saying "never judge a book by its cover" directly applies to this book, i saw it in my sister's house, the cover page was not really appealling to me but the content is loaded, i recommend this book for every christians out there aspiring to finish the race of faith in christ

    14. I enjoyed this. I like the way Steve writes - with a mix of wisdom, story, anecdote and humour. I had intended to work through the study guide for each chapter after reading each chapter; but I only managed that for the first 3 or 4 chapters. I guess that means I won't take away from the book as much as I could have.

    15. Somewhat chauvinistic in places, as it assumes that leaders are married men with kids. The book does have some helpful and encouraging suggestions, but reads more like something for the 1980s than the 2010s. Having said that, it has to be commended for its emphasis on integrity, character, and perseverance.

    16. This book really changed my perspective on my life as a whole while allowing me to continue living it to its fullest in the moment. Good read, inspirational, yet not too preachy. It really makes you want to be a better man, not for yourself but for those around you.

    17. Tuesday morning Men's Breakfast w/ Peter Way, Terry Podmore, Glenn Gilbert, Bob Peterson, Ardin Wright, Rob Kingsley, Dean Anderson, Bob Licko, Greg Anderson, Tim PuffpaffInspired by guest speaker Les Avery. Too many Christians fall away or grow distant from God.

    18. My friend JP loaned me this book on a Friday afternoon and I returned it to him the following Sunday at church. He said: "are you some kind of freak or something?" It was just too good to put down and I read it from cover to cover in about six hours that Friday night.

    19. Finishing strong is a good book that helps you to stay on track through your life time. It's been up to seven (7) years since I read it though but I know I had a positive feeling after reading it. Hope you will enjoy it.

    20. Steve Farrar does it again. I love the way he writes. He is very relatable. Easy to read but very insightful.

    21. Love his description of a Masters of Character Acquistion.- unemployment 101- remedial waiting- intermediate loneliness- Advanced obscurity
