In the race of life - a contest of stamina, endurance, faith, and understanding - we are never alone. Others have run it before us. In John C. Maxwell's vision of humanity, they are in the stands, urging us on, praying for us, and offering the wisdom of their experience. We need only listen for their voices and hear their stories to turn our modern-day challenges into victories.
From Rebekah to David, Abraham to Moses, Running with the Giants puts us face to face with the towering figures of the Bible. From these great heroes - and from the inimitable John C. Maxwell - comes the inspiration to live as they did: as leaders, as success stories, and as people close to God.
Listen to everything by John C. Maxwell.

"John Maxwell is the best at communicating biblical truths about management in a simple, usable format. Running with the Giants is the best thus far. I recommend it highly." (Larry Burkett, host, Money Matters)
I bought this for some encouragement and inspiration, but to be honest, by the time the book was finished, I couldn't remember any portion of it being really significant. Nothing stood out. You may have to re-read this short book a few times before it has any type of impact. For more inspiration, read Joel Osteen's book called Start Your Best Life Now.
What a great book! Every chapter had it's points and challenges that really spoke to me - really applicable and relevant. Fantastic!

I have read or listened to this book twice and will probably read it again.
The principles and the truths are ones to be reviewed over and over in order to implement them in different situations.
I especially appreciated the focus on Biblical characters and the lessons we can all learn from them.
I like the way he wove the lessons to be leaned into stories because it makes the principles easier to remember.
I highly recommend this book!
Other kiss concise meaning to these Old Testament biblical characters or Giants.. These giants help embolden us for life and spreading the Good News.
I took a lot in listening to this, it had helped me see a different side of the people who had struggle in the bible but had great wisdom coming out of those struggles. Give me the strength and the will to carry on and would recommend to anyone.
The pitch tone of the narrator made it seem as if one was really in a live event
The waiting to see who was coming next on to the pitch.....tried guessing who next and got some few ones correct ....that was exciting.
It kept me held down....I completed it in one go!
I was looking for books on people management and thought this might be good judging from the reviews. If you are not religious then you may want to look for another book. I was hoping this book would be more about business than about god and the bible but I was wrong. If you listen carefully you can extract some useful information.
