Publisher's Summary

John C. Maxwell, best selling author and motivational teacher, is known for his brilliant insights into the nature of leadership - and how we can tap into unfound abilities within ourselves. His new audiobook turns to the wellspring of tradition, as he offers inspiration, learning, and the power of prayer from the lives of Old Testament heroes.

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Great book!

What made the experience of listening to Running With the Giants the most enjoyable?

The pitch tone of the narrator made it seem as if one was really in a live event

What was one of the most memorable moments of Running With the Giants?

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It kept me held down....I completed it in one go!

This book was encouraging to me to understand that I don't have to be perfect in order to be blessed. It reminds me that just like the giants I can get the support I need to endure hardships and overcome obstacles.

Excellent insight and inspiration!

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!
