Roy Jenkins started riding motorcycles in the early 70s and was a successful amateur racer by the time he graduated from High School. Today he is a motocross racing announcer, chaplain, teacher and journalist. Racing Fuel for the Spirit is his second book written for motorcycle riders who want inspiration and spiritual growth from the Bible. Using his 20 years of Bible teaching experience and Master's degree in Biblical Studies, this ordained minister leads weekly devotions at motocross and Arenacross races in Mississippi and Louisiana. He uses stories from his years as a Pastor, River deck hand, Oil-field commercial diver, school teacher and most importantly as a husband and father. He throws in some stories from his experiences from motocross racing, cross-country motorcycle trips, and even sailing adventures. Photos from the people, places and events are sprinkled liberally throughout the book.
His calling, gift and purpose is to get the Bible into the hands of people who won't normally read it for themselves. He uses a real life story, raises an interesting question, then brings in the appropriate Bible principle, sometimes finishing off with a memorable quote for the day. In this book he includes photos from the world of motorcycling and beyond to help the reader picture the inspirational thought.
Racing Fuel for the Spirit is especially helpful for those who are too busy to read, but are interested in hearing how God's Word applies to a wide range of everyday topics such as: love, family, worry, prayer, patience, health, competing, depression, work, school, getting old, enjoying life, hope, suffering losses, change, contentment, forgiveness, doubts, eternity and knowing God.
This book was written for people with short attention spans who like real-life stories. If you need some help with life and want to understand God's plan and purpose, then you'll want to keep this book handy. For an investment of 5 minutes a day you can get an interesting story, a quick Bible lesson that relates to real life and meet some of the people in south Louisiana's motorcycle racing community, while feeding your spirit and growing in faith.
