Overview

You are invited to live life to the fullest.

For five hard years Christian leader Kevin Myers struggled personally and professionally. But it was during that time that God pointed out where he was going wrong and showed him the biblical pattern for living. It proceeded to transform his life, leadership, ministry, and relationships. During that time John Maxwell also became his mentor.

Together, using a baseball diamond as an analogy for following God's plan for life, Myers and Maxwell provide a clear path forward while helping you keep your priorities in order and your eyes on the prize. What is that pattern?

Connection with God: Winning Dependence
Character: Winning Within
Community: Winning with Others
Competence: Winning Results

Challenging, heart-felt, and insightful, Myers' story will connect with anyone who feels their life is falling short of God's promises. The hard-won lessons Myers learned, along with insightful comments and on-point application from Maxwell, will make it possible for you to win in this performance-based culture without losing your soul.

There are no shortcuts or steals in the spiritual journey of life. HOME RUN is a guidebook for living life and learning how to succeed God's way.

Editorial Reviews

Andy Stanley
"I heard Kevin Myers communicate these principles over a decade ago, and they have stuck with me ever since. I am thrilled that he and John have partnered to make these practical and timeless truths available to a broader audience. Not only are you going to enjoy this book, I have a hunch that you will never forget it . . . and will recommend it to others."
Bill Hybels
"I've known John Maxwell for over twenty-five years. He's a bestselling author, a fantastic leader, and an even better friend. I haven't known Kevin Myers quite as long, but I've watched him become an outstanding leader and innovative, gifted communicator. With John's partnership, Kevin has finally put his most impactful teaching into written form so he can share it with the country. I don't know a single person who would not benefit from reading HOME RUN. I highly recommend it."
Perry Noble
"When I met Kevin, we just clicked. So did our staffs. I knew about him because of the message he gave at Catalyst in 2001. I must have listened to that lesson more than a dozen times because it was so impactful. What he taught then, he shares now in HOME RUN. Read it. Discuss it in your small group. Put it into practice. It's a message that can change your life."
Ernie Johnson
"Kevin Myers is special. At a time when my priorities needed some serious rearranging, he walked me through the Bible, and led me to a relationship with Jesus Christ. Since then I've heard him preach hundreds of messages and the book that you have in front of you right now represents Kevin at his best. Read it and discover how you can be at your best, as a dad, husband, mom, wife, business person, you name it...it's all in how you run life's bases, and for so long I was running the wrong way. Kevin Myers and John Maxwell teaming up to talk leadership is like Hank Aaron and Willie Mays talking about how to hit a fastball. You can't help but listen and soak it in. HOME RUN-it's a Grand Slam."

I wish I had had this book in my twenties. A MUST read.

I started to read the book thinking that there probably wasnt much I would learn from yet another book on living life to the fullest. I was so "off base"! The way Kevin Myers presents the concept of running the bases is real, to the point and easy to understand and apply. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who's tired of the old analogies for living a better life. This book presents things based on true events and adds just the right amount of humor, reality and creativity to make ot a true hit.

This is an excellent book with steps teaching you how to live a great successful life. Chapter 7 is bold, honest and will help with your past family dysfunctional baggage. Give a copy to all friends and family struggling with life issues!

Chapters 1 and 2 lay the groundwork but from Chapter 3 on it is a clear, concise guide on how to live a  Godly life.  So wish I had this book when I was younger!

I have not finished the book yet, but so far the quote that most sticks out in my mind is that "God doesn't owe you, He OWNS you."  When the Apostle Paul in Romans 12:1-2, appeals to the readers to present their bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, he isn't merely referring to readers' physical bodies, he is referring to their entire being.  If we are willing to surrender our entire being and live or die in whatever way that God wants, since He OWNS us, we are in a place where God can really transform us and renew our minds.  By living for God, we will discover what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. I have been a Christian for 18 years and sought God through reading the entire many times, prayer, fasting, sermons, books, classes, fellowship, etc.  However, this book has made me see the scriptures in a new way.  I realize now that while I sought God, I also wanted things my way. I am sharing the book with my adult son and we have both had Holy Spirit encounters from reading this book.  I can't wait to finish the book and see what other insights about God I can learn. P.S.  If you want to read an excellent translation (thought for thought) of Romans 12:1-2 read the translation in The Message.

What real author/writer encourages his flock to go on social media and protest that the book isn't on the NYT Best Seller list?
