Back Of The Book:
"BOOGITY, BOOGITY, BOOGITY!
LET'S GO RACING!"
Winning is in every racer's blood. They continually push themselves to the edge, physically and emotionally, in pursuit of the checkered flag and a visit to Victory Lane. It is the racer's way.
We too are racers in the middle of the greatest race known to mankind: life. We want to live in a way that, when we reach our finish line, we can be proud of what we've accomplished. We want to be an example for our family and friends. And if we are followers of Christ, we want to hear the words, "Well done my good and faithful servant."
In The Race, Motor Racing Outreach (MRO) leaders Billy Mauldin and Kyle Froman share the lessons they've learned in the pits and among the NASCAR community to help others with their personal mission--preparing for it, receiving it, and then living faithfully on mission. Throughout, three-time NASCAR champion and Hall-of-Fame inductee Darrell Waltrip offers related stories on what it takes to win the race, giving fans an inside look at his profession and the personal belief in God that keeps him on mission.
Racing is exhilarating and thrilling. Racing is also dangerous and exhausting. Without preparation we will have a hard time finishing the race, much less winning. We have to take time “at the shop” to prepare ourselves for what a life on mission looks like.The book is divided up into three sections, Preparing for Mission, Receiving Your Mission, and Living on Mission. Within those three sections are chapters that go deeper into how we as Christ followers can not only prepare for this race of life, but also come out winners.
I particularly enjoyed the different voices in this book. It was interesting to hear Darrell's perspective as a driver and also Kyle and Billy's perspectives as ones who minister to the NASCAR personnel, drivers and their families. The gospel is clearly presented and a plan for implementing the spread of the gospel in our own lives is lined out in detail. If you are like me you will come away from it with an even bigger appreciation for the sport and especially the ministry of Motor Racing Outreach.
