Overview

THE SPIRIT OF GOD CAME UPON HIM IN POWER...It is common knowledge that athletic performance declines with age. So when fifty-two-year-old Chet Hollander, a born-again Christian, confidently announces at a local track meet that he wants to compete in the 100-meter dash, the organizers nearly burst out laughing. And when he then divulges God's mind-boggling plan for his life-he is to go to the World Championships in Berlin, win the gold medal in the 100-meter dash, and use his newfound fame as a platform to spread the Gospel-they are ready to have him committed. But when he smokes sprinters thirty years his junior and rockets across the finish line in world-class time, no one laughs or calls 911. Determined to prove his age-defying performance is not a fluke, Chet enters the Atlas Grand Prix and races the globe's best sprinters-and breaks the world record set by Jamaican phenom Tripp Gainer! In the ensuing days, video of Chet's fantastic victory goes viral on YouTube. And the world is deeply perplexed by two things: How does a man Chet's age run so fast, and what is that mysterious golden light enshrouding him when he races? Supremely threatened by Chet, Satan recruits his earthly disciples to destroy him: a God-hating sports-channel producer, a ruthless talk-show host, a beautiful young temptress. Despite Satan's attacks, Chet qualifies at the U.S. Nationals and is headed for Berlin-and a potential showdown with the mighty Tripp Gainer. With memorable characters, nail-biting suspense, and twists and turns, Running With The Spirit will entertain you from the first page to the last. Gary Lombardo wrote his first novel at twelve.
