Product Description

Review

"Writing with an intense focus on the glory of God, and a desire to see God's people complete in Him, Steve Lawson has provided us with a book that is both humbling and motivating. For us to be able to finish the race of our lives, we must first know Jesus as the One who has gone before us as the captain of our salvation (Heb. 2:10, 12:2). May this book find the hands and hearts of those who long to be true disciples. Aim to finish faithfully, trusting Christ, and feel the pleasure of God as you run." --Chris Larson, president and COO of Ligonier Ministries "Following in the steps of the Apostle Paul, Dr. Lawson uses the athletic world to expose the vanity of living for the temporal and points us to eternity. One of the most unique features of this book is that it would be of immeasurable benefit to anyone in any circumstance of life. It contains a clear gospel message for the unbeliever, a wake-up call for the wayward Christian, and a powerful stimulus to the faithful believer who is weary from the battle. No matter who you are or where you are in your walk with Christ, this book will both challenge and encourage you." --Paul Washer, HeartCry Missionary Society

In It to Win It 20 Sep 2013
By Paul Washer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Following in the steps of the Apostle Paul, Dr. Lawson uses the athletic world to expose the vanity of living for the temporal and points us to eternity. One of the most unique features of this book is that it would be of immeasurable benefit to anyone in any circumstance of life. It contains a clear gospel message for the unbeliever, a wake up call for the wayward Christian, and a powerful stimulus to the faithful believer who is weary from the battle. No matter who you are or where you are in your walk with Christ, this book will both challenge and encourage you. Use it as an evangelistic tool to witness to lost friends and colleagues. Give it to Christians who have lost their focus and their way. Use it is as a resource for small group study, Sunday school, and youth meetings. Put it in the hands of pastors, missionaries, and laborers of every kind (especially, if they are discouraged and worn). Finally, if you are a parent, coach, or teacher, make sure that everyone of the youth under your care read this book and have an opportunity to discuss its contents with you.

The Race is On 2 Sep 2013
By Dr. David Steele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Twenty years ago, Steven Lawson penned the book, Men Who Win. In It to Win It is a fresh and updated version of his original work that points readers to the race that matters, namely, the Christian life. In It to Win It is packed with practical advice that is saturated with biblical wisdom. Dr. Lawson directs Christian runners to the starting line and sets forth the aim of the book: "My desire is that God will ignite a fire within you to live victoriously in what truly matters in this life. My goal is to help you chart your course, set your pace, and point you to the finish line. My stated aim is to help you design a game plan so that you may 'run in such a way that you may win.'" In this short volume, the author successfully guides readers to the blocks and sends them running with the intention of glorifying God.

Readers are encouraged to enter the right race, pursue rewards, and commit themselves to a rigorous training program. Healthy runners drink deeply from the never-ending well of God's Word. Runners are urged to feast on the truth of God's Word and strive to attain spiritual victory. They are encouraged to model the God-centered faith of saints like Abraham, Moses, and Noah. They are challenged to remove obstacles that hinder them from running the race. Ultimately, these runners are urged to keep their focus on the Lord Jesus Christ and to faithfully follow him all the way to the finish line.

Dr. Lawson warns runners about the possibility of being disqualified. He spends some much-needed time warning about the consequences of sexual sin in particular.

At the end of the day, In It to Win It is a practical guide about the doctrine of sanctification. Sports fans will greatly benefit as the author includes several examples from the world of athletics that he directly ties to the Christian race. Here is a book to read, digest, and put into action immediately. And ultimately, this practical guide will help runners enter the right race, run the race with their eye on the prize and cross the finish line - all to the glory of God!

Good book for Christians or not on the challenges to get to Heaven. 7 Sep 2013
By M. Baldanza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pastor Lawson uses this book as an exhortation for Christians not to falter in their lives. He admonishes us using texts taken from the Bible to demonstrate that, even though hard, the race must be run to the end. The book is also a good evangelistic tool as it, at the same time, has a message to those who are knowledgeable of Christ but not committed (as some in the book of Hebrews). A striking difference for other books is that the focus is not the Christian himself, but Christ. Dr. Lawson writes in a very readable flow (as he does when preaching) and a lot of Theology is inserted in the book, even not being explicit. This is an enjoyable reading (and challenging at the same time) for Christians and a strong admonition for those who don't believe in Christ.
